Who was fired from The Conners?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

I was actually not fired from The Conners, but rather my character, DJ Conner, was written out of the show. It was a decision made by the show’s producers and writers, and I was informed that I would not be returning for future seasons.

To provide a bit of background, The Conners is a spin-off of the popular sitcom Roseanne, which aired from 1988 to 1997. When Roseanne Barr, the star of the original show, made a controversial tweet in 2018, ABC decided to cancel the revival of Roseanne and instead launched The Conners, focusing on the rest of the Conner family.

I had been a part of the Roseanne revival and continued on with The Conners when it was created. However, it seems that the writers felt that my character’s storyline had run its course or didn’t fit into the direction they wanted to take the show in future seasons. So, I was told that DJ Conner would not be a part of the show moving forward.

While it was disappointing to hear that I would not be returning, I understand that these decisions are made based on what the producers and writers believe is best for the show. As an actor, I have learned that being written out of a show or not being asked back for future seasons is a common occurrence in the industry. It’s just a part of the business.

Of course, it is always a bit sad to say goodbye to a character that I have portrayed for many years and to the cast and crew that I have worked closely with. However, I am grateful for the opportunities I had to be a part of The Conners and to bring DJ Conner to life.

Moving forward, I will continue to pursue other acting projects and explore new opportunities. Being in the entertainment industry means constantly adapting and being open to new experiences. While it may be difficult at times, I am excited to see what the future holds and to take on new roles and challenges.

I was informed that my character, DJ Conner, would not be returning to The Conners, but I was not fired from the show. It was a decision made by the producers and writers, and I understand that these decisions are a normal part of the television industry.
