THE CONNERS REPLACE ROSEANNE

Werner Entertainment produces comedy for ABC including "The Conners" which started in 2018 with the remaining cast members from "Roseanne" after the show was canceled. 

"The Conners" is winding down production of its third season.

"Roseanne" was canceled following a racist tweet from the show's namesake Roseanne Barr but almost immediately birthed a spin-off, "The Conners," with several of the cast, crew, and writing staff maintained for the new show.

 

"THE CONNERS" THIRD SEASON

Before being canceled the "Roseanne" reboot was well received, scoring big ratings in 2018 after a twenty-year hiatus. Fans were glad not to be left in the wind after its cancellation as the spin-off  "The Conners" was announced soon after.

"The Conners" is winding down production of its third season. The show is yet to be green-lighted for the 2021-22 season. Fans are eagerly anticipating what the show has in store for them.

MEMORIES OF FILM SET DEATHS

Richmond's death stirs up memories of famous actors who died during filming. The list of Hollywood stars who died during the filming of a movie or TV show is quite long and they always shock the world.

Paul Walker was killed in a car accident during the filming of “Fast and Furious 7” in 2013 during a few days off from filming. Philip Seymour Hoffman passed on during the filming of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2.” 

Another one of Hollywood's most loveable comedians John Candy met his untimely death in 1994 during the filming of "Wagon East". These actors lost their lives doing what they love the most.
