March 22 (UPI) -- ABC has renewed Roseanne spinoff The Conners for a second season.
Series stars and Roseanne veterans John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene) and Lecy Goranson (Becky) are set to return. ABC says additional cast members will be announced at a later date.
The Conners was ordered by ABC following the cancellation of the Roseanne revival in May. The series was canceled after series lead Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet aimed at former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.
"We are proud to be continuing the story of the iconic Conner family," ABC entertainment president Karey Burke said in a statement. "This team is fearless in their willingness to tackle contemporary issues with humor and heart, and I have no doubt they will continue to outdo themselves."
