Media: Lanford, IL Patch

Since it's being referenced in the speculation topic, I thought I'd put the source here.

The Conners (working title), a spinoff of the groundbreaking family comedy Roseanne, has been greenlit to series with an order of 10 episodes for fall 2018. After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family—Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J.—grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns—with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

Really, that doesn't even sound interesting. They should have just let it die.  They've already ruined the original show for me (twice, actually, the final season and the reboot), do they want a third go at it?

Haha,  this "—with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails." didn't even register.   Whatever show they're describing, it's not Roseanne or The Conners (hopefully).  Now if they had said "with sarcasm and snarky humor, they hang in there"... maybe.

What is this, 1958?

Why is 1958 always chosen at the Butt Monkey year? Because of "Pleasantville"?

It could have just been because it's 2018, so 1958 is quite literally 60 years ago.

If it means the show gets to end with some class and dignity, that's all I care about. I honestly think this is less about anticipating a long run, and much more to do with giving this show and its 30 year-legacy a proper ending. And given that the original ending claimed everything from season 2 onward was part of a book, complete with husband switching--yeah, I'm okay with this.

Now, if it looks like things will progress past this coming season, I'll be more than willing to eat crow. But until then, I'm going to stay positive. It gets old to be too negative too often. :)
