ABC has agreed to a seventh and final season of the comedy series "The Conners," and it will be the show's last season on the network.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the season is expected to be the shortest of the show so far. "The Conners" premiered on the network as a spinoff in 2018 following controversy after the network's former show "Roseanne" was canceled after the comedian Roseanne Barr was accused of making racist remarks.
