Katey Sagal plays Louise Guldofski on the hit television series. While Sagal has only been portraying Louise since 2018, the character of Louise Guldofski has in some way been a part of the “Conners” history, for decades. Long before the show was even before it was developed, really.

A Long History With ‘The Conners’

“The Conners” is a spin-off of the reboot of one of the 1990s most iconic television shows, “Roseanne.”

“Roseanne,” found unprecedented fame when it premiered in the late 1980s. The show continued for just over a decade before it was canceled in 1997. The show found new life, however, when it was picked up for a reboot series in 2018.

However, the “Roseanne” reboot faced some controversy after some comments made by the sitcom’s front-runner, Roseanne Barr caused the show to lose viewers.

Rather than cancel the series entirely, producers of the show decided to revamp the rebooted version of “Roseanne” following Roseanne’s family, “The Conner’s” after her “unexpected death” on the series.

This is where Louise comes in. Louise had been mentioned in the earlier run of the “Roseanne” series. Although, audiences never officially met the character back then.

Louise and Roseanne’s husband, Dan, had a fling prior to his marriage to Roseanne. The storyline was one that caused a rift in Dan and Roseanne’s marriage for some time during the show’s original run in the 1990s.

When Roseanne Barr exited the series in the reboot, producers decided that Dan Conner needed a romantic interest. So, in steps the only other woman we know to have been with Dan prior to his long marriage to his on-screen wife.

Rekindling An Old Flame

When Louise returns to her hometown, she soon runs into her old flame, Dan Conner. The two quickly reconnect and become good friends. Not long afterward, the friendship grows into something bigger as the two develop a romantic relationship.

In the finale episode of the third season of “The Conners” Dan finally proposes to Louise. This, of course, sets the stage for some fun wedding-planning plotlines as season four begins on Wednesday, September 22.
