The third season of ABC sitcom returns to the screen and offstage under a different set of circumstances.
The show was built, according to the series producers, with its desire to be relevant on current events — even though the show went through drastic changes for its third season, as revealed Wednesday during a virtual press tour panel.
Rigid on-set protocols are now a way of life for the series, and that life is similar to that on the show. In the storyline of the show, the loud-mouthed Conner family is battling together — and producers said that with four episodes already filmed, they are hoping to keep focusing on the ramifications of the pandemic throughout the entire season.
When the team discovered they would premiere at the end of October, they rush to production on an election episode, as well as a series exploring how the Conners celebrated Halloween this year.
As one of the first waves of scripted shows returning to filming, socially distant standards have been put into place. Special zones on set keep the cast away from each other and crews are limited to no more than 40 people at any given time — testing is regular. As far as the live audiences, long a staple of “The Conners,” do not expect them to return anytime soon. The risks are not worth the benefits, says sids star and executive producer Sara Gilbert.

The actor Alicia Goranson, who plays Becky Conner, has lived part of her time on the east coast and ended up quarantined in the west. Her thoughts are very much with the people who work alone and miss their colleagues,” she said.
On the first day of the audition, “I felt nervous” for the first time but after seeing the procedures and the commitment to a safe set, she was able to relax. “The strangest part is for me when we finally taped a scene and finally dropped our mask. The feeling of that was very naked,” she said.
On 28 October, ABC premieres “The Conners”.
