“The Conners,” ABC’s Roseanne-less replacement for “Roseanne,” has added a series regular for the show’s upcoming season, casting Maya Lynne Robinson, Variety reports.
“Robinson will play the role of Geena Williams-Conner, DJ’s wife and Mary’s mother. She takes over the role from Xosha Roquemore, who played the character in the first revival season of ‘Roseanne,’ which became ‘The Conners’ after the infamous exit of series star and creator Roseanne Barr,” Variety reports.
