ABC ordered an extra episode for Season 1 of The Conners today, extending its debut outing to 11 total. The news comes just two episodes into the show's run.

A spin-off of Roseanne, which had its time on the air cut short due to controversy surrounding its star, The Conners continues the story of the titular family, acting in a way as a second season to its source material. Before its cancellation, Roseanne had actually been renewed for a 13-episode sophomore run.

The Conners follows the family members' lives after a sudden turn of events alters their landscape forever. Forced to continue living their daily working-class lives in Lanford in a completely new way, Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky, and D.J. tackle everything from parenthood and financial pressure to dating and unexpected pregnancy.
