Maya Lynne Robinson Joins Cast as Series Regular


MAYA LYNNE ROBINSON JOINS THE CAST OF ABC’S ‘THE CONNERS’ AS A SERIES REGULAR

Actress Maya Lynne Robinson will be joining the beloved cast of “The Conners” as a series regular, alongside John Goodman (“Dan”), Laurie Metcalf (“Jackie”), Sara Gilbert (“Darlene”), Lecy Goranson (“Becky”), Michael Fishman (“D.J.”), Emma Kenney (“Harris”), Ames McNamara (“Mark”) and Jayden Rey (“Mary”). “The Conners” premieres TUESDAY, OCT. 16 (8:00-8:31 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Robinson will play Geena Williams-Conner, DJ’s (Michael Fishman) wife and Mary’s (Jayden Rey) mother, who returns home from active duty overseas in Afghanistan. Her character first appeared in the iconic episode from the original “Roseanne” series, “White Men Can’t Kiss,” (OAD: 11/16/94).

“We’re thrilled to welcome the incredibly talented Maya Lynne Robinson to the cast this season. Her character 2nd Lieutenant Geena Conner, whom a younger DJ was reluctant to kiss in his school play, comes full circle as his wife and Mary’s mother, bringing back a little piece of Conner history. Yet, while Geena is no stranger to the family, viewers old and new will enjoy seeing how her ‘military-style’ discipline meshes with the Conners’ more laid-back attitude,” said showrunner and executive producer Bruce Helford.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
