The Conners is adding more episodes to its upcoming second season.
ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said Tuesday the sitcom will have nearly a full season following its return to TV, according to TVLine.
Full seasons in broadcast typically consist of 22 episodes. The Conners had 11 episodes in Season 1 and was initially slated to have 13 episodes in Season 2.
Deadline said Season 2 will consist of 19 episodes. Sources said the number is contingent on Laurie Metcalf's schedule. The actress plays Jackie Harris on The Conners.
ABC renewed The Conners for a second season in March. Metcalf, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert and Lecy Goranson are set to return, with additional cast members to be announced at a later date.
The Conners is a spinoff of the ABC series Roseanne starring Roseanne Barr. ABC ordered The Conners in June after cancelling the Roseanne revival due to Barr's racist tweet.
"We are proud to be continuing the story of the iconic Conner family," ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said after the show's renewal. "This team is fearless in their willingness to tackle contemporary issues with humor and heart, and I have no doubt they will continue to outdo themselves."
