Mary Steenburgen will be stopping by The Conners, but it doesn't look like it will be a friendly social visit. The Last Man On Earth actress and wife of Ted Danson has revealed that she will guest star on The Conners, ABC's unexpected spinoff of Roseanne. And based on reviews of two episodes of the top secret sitcom spinoff, Steenburgen will appear in the premiere episode, titled "Keep On Truckin.'"
Steenburgen posted an Instagram photo of herself and John Goodman, who plays patriarch Dan Conner on the new show, captioning it with, "Made a little visit to my friends, [The Conners]."
In the pic, Goodman's Dan Conner seems to be very angry and Steenburgen's unidentified character appears to be putting him in his place. It does not look like a friendly conversation as the two have a heated exchange on the Conner family's front porch.
ABC also posted a photo of Steenburgen as she stands at the Conner front door after DJ Conner (Michael Fishman) answers it. The actress has a very solemn look on her face in the scene. It appears she may be delivering bad news to the family in the spinoff series, which will show the Conner clan moving on without their matriarch, Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) after her still unexplained departure.
