The future of the Conners family was uncertain after the network fired Roseanne Barr, but they are moving on without her. ABC just dropped the first photo from the set of Roseanne spin-off and it seems the cast is ready for their big comeback.

Filming of the new sitcom started a few days ago, and the network marked this special occasion by sharing a sneak peek with the fans. Picture from the set features the family sitting at the kitchen table, reading their scripts for the first episode.

Roseanne regulars John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman and Lecy Goranson aren’t the only ones reprising their roles. Jayden Rey, Ames McNamara and Emma Kenney, who played the Conners’ grandkids in Roseanne revival, are ready for a comeback.

In addition to sharing the first photo with the fans, ABC also surprised them by dropping the first teaser. The short promo video is pretty mysterious since it only features slow zoom of the family’s familiar couch. It ends with a question “What’s next?” but nobody enters the room providing us with answers.

We’ll have to wait until October 16 for the mystery to be resolved – that’s when The Conners comes to ABC. The cast is returning for 10 episodes, but if this new sitcom replicates the success of Roseanne revival, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the network ordered more.
