The Conners is adding some more star power to its series cast!

The first of two casting announcements made on Tuesday, Johnny Galecki will be returning to the series to reprise his role as Darlene’s ex-husband, David Healy. Galecki also made a guest appearance on the revival season of the series and viewers will certainly be happy to see him back in the role once more to develop more of that storyline.

Actress Juliette Lewis will also be joining the series in the role of Blue, David’s girlfriend. Lewis shared the news via her social media pages by posting photos from the set. She captioned her post, “HERE’S THE BIG NEWS!! Look what I’m doin!!!” The official social media account for The Conners also shared the photos.

Both Galecki and Lewis’ appearances on The Conners gives us the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation reunion we never knew we needed so badly! The two played Rusty and Audrey in the 1989 holiday classic and we love seeing these two back on set together again!

Check out the social media posts and photos below.

 

 

The Conners official series synopsis says:

“After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky, and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws 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.”

The series will star John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Lecy Goranson (Becky), and Michael Fishman (D.J.) all reprising their beloved character roles from the original Roseanne series. The series has also just recently cast Maya Lynne Robinson as Geena, DJ Conner’s wife.

Tom Werner executive produce, along with Gilbert, Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen, and Tony Hernandez. Helford, Caplan, and Rasmussen are also writers.

The Conners is set to premiere on Tuesday, October 16th at 8 pm.
