“The Conners” First Sneak Peek Is Out

The glimpse hints several times that the Conner history will not be off limits, as showcased by Jackie saying "I thought we should take about a game plan for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas," and Darlene spouting back "I say we follow the Conner tradition: spend every dime we have on Halloween and then we have nothing to be thankful for or buy gifts with.” It’s a tip of the hat to their famous Halloween episodes.

There’s also a new addition to the cast introduced. Maya Lynne Robinson portrays DJ’s wife, a girl he didn’t want to kiss in his school play years ago. She’s also military in the show which will be a nice contrast to the Conner way of life.

“The Conners” premieres October 16 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
