The Conners will be back on ABC. 

Deadline reports that ABC has officially ordered a second season of Roseanne spinoff. News of the renewal were confirmed Friday.

“We are proud to be continuing the story of the iconic Conners family,” Karey Burke, president ABC Entertainment, 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.”

The first season starred Roseanne alums including John Goodman (Dan Conner), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie Harris), Sara Gilbert (Darlene Conner) and Lecy Goranson (Becky Conner-Healy). The lot is expected to return to the 2nd season. The freshman season also featured a stellar lineup of guest appearances including Matthew Broderick, Juliette Lewis, Katey Sagal, Mary Steenburgen, Justin Long and Jay R. Ferguson. 

The Conners debuted in October. It followed the family as it grapples with parenthood, divorce, dating, aging and financial pressures in working-class America. The first season concluded in January.
