The first trailer for ‘The Conners’ is here and it doesn’t mention Roseanne’s absence from the show at all

The Conners will be back, but without Roseanne on Tuesday, October 16. ABC
  • ABC released a teaser trailer for its “Roseanne” spin-off “The Conners.
  • The spin-off will revolve around the rest of the Conner family without matriarch, Roseanne Barr.
  • This year’s successful “Roseanne” revival was canceled after Barr compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape on Twitter.
  • According to Barr, her character will be killed off the show.
  • The new promo doesn’t address Barr’s absence at all. Instead, it dances around the elephant in the room by touching on how the family will celebrate Halloween and the rest of the year.
  • “The Conners” will premiere on ABC Tuesday, October 16 at 8 p.m. Watch the trailer below.
