It’s still not clear if season 5 of The Conners will be the last season of the show, but we do know when the Roseanne spinoff will be back on TV. The fourth season of The Conners ended in May 2022. After years of “will they or won’t they?” drama, Ben and Darlene got back together and got married in the last episode of the show.
But the season 4 finale of The Conners wasn’t so easy for some of the show’s side characters. Harris, Darlene’s daughter, broke up with her boyfriend when he tried to get her to have kids. This means that Aldo won’t be in The Conners season 5 very often. Jackie finally got a break when she married her boyfriend Neville, but the wedding was so stressful that the couple almost broke up.

Storyline Of The Conners Season 5
In the season 4 finale of The Connors, Darlene (Sarah Gilbert) and Ben (Jay R. Ferguson Jr. ) decide to build a new house and invite Becky (Lecy Goranson) and Beverley Rose to move in with them. Harris, on the other hand, makes it sound like she might want to move in with Dan (John Goodman).
Bruce Helford and Dave Caplan, who are in charge of the show, talked to Cinema Blend about what the next season will be like. They gave hints that the next stories would be about Becky’s situation and how it will affect Darlene and her boyfriend.
Caplan said, “I think it will be so much fun to see what it’s like for Becky to live with Ben and Darlene while they try to have a honeymoon year and start their own life.” “And she is definitely a little bit—a she’s little bit lost right now. So that’s going to cause a lot of trouble.”
The showrunners also said that Louise might find it hard that Harris is moving in with her grandfather, since she has been nagging Dan about giving her time alone. Helford teased, “Dan and Louise actually owning the house without Harris, which could cause a lot of trouble.” “Louise still isn’t getting what she wants. She and Dan aren’t getting privacy or anything else they want.”
Fans of season 4 may have noticed how happy Laurie Metcalf’s character, Jackie, is with her younger boyfriend, Neville. But Helford and Caplan say that Jackie’s tendency to hurt herself may not let them stay happy for long.
Helford thought, “And then Jackie and Neville.” “Jackie is always in danger of ruining her own life. It will be interesting to see how she and Neville deal with everything.”
“The happier Jackie is, the more likely she is to mess something up,” Caplan said. “She’s very happy right now,” we said.
