The Conners Season 5: What’s Next?
In the fourth season of the show, viewers saw wedding preparations going on a large scale. The three couples who got engaged to each other were Jackie and Neville, Darlene and Ben, and Harris and Aldo. All the three couples wanted to get married together at the same time and place. Everyone was happily on board with the idea when Dan proposed his house to be the wedding venue.
When the show returns with The Conners Season 5, we can expect a whole lot of drama and chaos in the lives of the characters. Given that nothing in the Conner family happens without it. The fifth season will feature the preparations and arrangements for the wedding. Executing a grand wedding of not one but three couples will not be an easy task. And we can expect a lot of hilarious moments in the midst. The fifth season will be a treat for the viewers with lots of exciting moments.
The cast of the comedy drama features Sara Gilbert in the role of Darlene Conner, John Goodman playing Dan Conner, and Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris. The cast also comprises Lecy Goranson appearing as Becky Conner-Healy, Michael Fishman as D.J. Conner, Emma Kenney as Harris Conner-Healy, and Ames McNamara appearing as Mark Conner-Healy.
