When will the emotional rollercoaster ride that will leave the fans laughing one minute and crying the next return on the television screens? Continue reading to find out.
The fifth season’s finale, “The Grad Finale,” had a massive cliffhanger that was quite unexpected and has excited the fans more than ever to know what happens next, leading to questions like, “When will The Conners Season 6 return on ABC?” The ongoing hype for the next chapter is surreal, which for once is great to see for a series that is a spin-off of the television series Roseanne.
While we understand your curiosity, we regret to inform you that the new season is not going to be available on ABC in June 2023.
Sadly, the fans will have to wait some more time if they want to watch the show on this streaming platform. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of everything that the fans should look forward to and know about while they wait and recall events from the previous seasons. Here is everything we know so far about ABC’s The Conners Season 6 at Web News Observer!
The Conners Season 6 Release Date: When will the new season return?
As of writing this, we can confirm to the readers that the potential release date for the next season hasn’t been disclosed, as the fifth season was recently renewed on May 16, 2023, which makes it way too early to disclose this information. Moreover, it will take time to even commence production as the show right now is on a break, usually resuming production sometime around August 2023. Hence, there is no way that the new season will return in June 2023!
But if we have to predict the potential release date of The Conners Season 6, then it is expected to arrive sometime in the fall of 2023, with the most likely window being sometime around September 2023, with new episodes airing every Wednesday at 8/7c on ABC, which will later be available to stream on Hulu, just like the last two seasons. Of course! This can only happen if the production starts on a proper schedule in order to avoid any longer hiatus and unnecessary delays to the release.
We would also like to mention that, right now, this is just pure speculation! As you know, there is a major ongoing Writers Guild Strike of 2023 happening, which can cause delays in the release of the new episodes, as many production houses have to come to a halt and won’t be returning until the situation is resolved as soon as possible. Moving forward, anything is possible; we’ll just have to wait patiently to know what direction the crew is willing to take.

The Conners Season 6 Plot: What to expect in the new season?
Not much has been disclosed about the potential plotlines for the next season, but we are certain that the creators will keep it true to the overall plot, which is as follows: “The Conners continue to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford. This iconic family — Dan, Jackie, Darlene, and Becky — grapples with parenthood, dating, financial pressures, and aging in working-class America. Through it all — the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns — with love, humor, and perseverance, the family prevails.”
There is speculation that the next season might end up being the last one!
So, we are hoping that the show goes all the way to answer all the lingering questions with which the audience has been anticipating some conclusion over the years. Executive producer Bruce Helford had previously hinted that Season 6 might be the series’ last.

Ahead of the Season 5 finale, he told TVLine: “Sara Gilbert expressed to the network that we don’t want to go out without knowing that we are going out with a series finale so we can build to the right ending — and at this point in time, we feel that [next season] is possibly going to be the last season of The Conners.”
The season will also pick up from the final episode of the fifth season in which the viewers saw Mark can only invite three guests to his high school graduation.
Darlene is upset when he asks his absent father, David, saying Ben has been a better dad. Louise offers to host a graduation party at the Lunch Box, then contends with everyone requesting different fun activities. Mark eventually realizes how much Ben has done for him and disinvites David. Mark and Louise hold a family graduation ceremony for Dan, Becky, Jackie, and Harris, who either had disappointing commencements or earned a GED. The family then heads to a game arcade where everyone can enjoy their preferred activity.
The Conners Season 6 Cast: Who will return?
The main cast members from the fifth season are expected to return in the new season with the addition of some new and familiar faces, are as follows: John Goodman as Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner, Lecy Goranson as Becky Conner, Emma Kenney as Harris Healy, Ames McNamara as Mark Healy II, Jayden Rey as Mary Conner, Jay R. Ferguson as Ben Olinsky.
The recurring cast members include Katey Sagal as Louise Goldufski, Charlotte Sanchez as Beverly Conner, and Nat Faxon as Neville Goldufski. Additionally, “The Conners,” is executive produced by Tom Werner, along with Sara Gilbert, Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen, and Tony Hernandez. The series is from Werner Entertainment.
The Conners Season 6 Episodes: Where to stream?
The next season is reported to be picked up for 13 episodes, with an option for nine more if the story has more to offer and the viewership is steady enough for the creators to continue the plot further. Additionally, it has also been reported to be a comparatively short season, depending on the potential writer’s strike and how long it would last.
In the exclusive interview with TVLine, Helford added: “There may only be 13 episodes. Obviously, we always want to do 20 or 22 [episodes], but at this point in time, we’re talking about if we can do 13 — God willing — and if we can do more, we’ll do more.”Anything relating to the episode count is subject to change, so we urge viewers to catch up with the prior episodes in order to get an idea of how the story can be carried forward in the sixth season.
All the episodes of The Conners are currently available on ABC, FuboTV, and Hulu Plus. The show is also available to stream for rent or purchase on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, and Vudu with a variety of membership plans. So, it is time for you to renew your plans and explore another genre of TV series and movies from the massive catalog that the streaming service offers its members worldwide.
