So far, our readers still think first time is best and voted season 1 of The Conners as their favorite season. The show’s first appearance, in which the show’s characters grapple with the death of matriarch Roseanne Conner (Roseanne Barr), received 49.5% of the votes in our poll. The season’s serious look at what it takes to survive the loss of a parent and spouse — not to mention how to deal with the wreckage of their imperfect choices — seems to have really resonated with fans. Season 1 is also the season where Becky goes from surrogate mother to mother of her own thanks to a one night stand.
The remaining seasons were listed in descending order in the poll results. Season 2, which is about the birth of Beverly Rose and Darlene choosing between her ex and her husband-to-be Ben, came in second with 28.22%. Season 3, in which Becky struggles with her sobriety and Darlene’s big career change, scored 16.67%. And in last place with 5.61% was Season 4, which brings fans multiple weddings and includes the memorable episode “Triggered.”
Only time will tell how fans ultimately feel about Season 5 and any future seasons of The Conners that we may bring to the table.
