Wondering when your favorite bunch of dysfunctional crazies will return to your screen? Worry not, we've got you covered
After some pretty iconic, funny, hilarious and extremely relatable episodes surround the mess of a year that has been 2020, ABC's hit 'Roseanne' spinoff 'The Conners' finally going on its Season 3 winter break. Episode 6 was the winter finale of this ongoing third season, and following this Wednesday, 'The Conners' takes a backseat for the next few weeks at least before airing its grand Winter premiere next year. Wondering when your favorite bunch of dysfunctional crazies will return to your screen? Worry not, we've got you covered.
'The Conners' returns with Season 3 Episode 7 on Wednesday, January 13, at its usual 9 pm time slot on ABC. The reason behind the break is of course the designated winter one, where network shows space out their 22-24 episodes per season by taking time off during the holiday season. They know nobody would enjoy spending another minute glued to the screen when the prospect of meeting your loved ones and enjoying some quality time with them is on the horizon. Sounds particularly appealing after spending a whole year in self-quarantine, so why bother with airing their finest comedy on the telly, right?
Instead, the series takes time off for all of six weeks, perhaps to shoot the latter half of the season as strict Covid-19 social distancing guidelines are restricting a lot of fluidity during filming. But for those wondering what 'The Conners' could have in store for when Season 3 resumes, not much can be said for certain as ABC is yet to even list the name of the winter premiere episode, let alone provide a concrete synopsis for it.
Still, based on the official synopsis offered by the network, here's what happened in the winter finale, titled 'Protest, Drug Test and One Leaves the Nest': "Harris' job is in jeopardy after joining a protest she strongly believes in, leading to tense discussions within the family. Jackie makes a visit to Wellman Plastics only to realize the company is instituting supervised drug testing, inspiring Becky to lead her own protest."
This is the first time Harris appeared in the third season and all for just one episode! But that one leaves the nest part has us concerned because it looks like Harris is going to be permanently gone after the tough talk with her family. There's also Jackie's concerns with the drug test hinting at a possible addiction on her part, much the way her sister Roseanne had succumbed to. But then again, they just introduced a new love interest for Jackie in the recent few episodes, so expect more of that Neville relationship to unfold.
As for Becky, who's chosen to stay away from work all this while and show up only when she feels like it, this inspection at Wellman's is giving her a chance to bite back at the company she works for, so expect more tense conflict between her and her job and by extension, also older sister Darlene who keeps calling her out on deciding to stay home for the baby.
'The Conners' Season 3 winter finale aka Episode 6 will air on Wednesday, December 2, at 9 pm on ABC.
