Roseanne was an American sitcom that spanned ten seasons, and now the ABC show has a spin-off about the family called The Conners.
Fishman expresses his experience returning to the cast and role:
I grew up with everybody, not just in front of the camera, behind the camera too. It's like being able to go home; it was very cathartic in a way to go and work with everybody.
Michael Fishman, who continues his role as D.J. Conner also directed this season's Halloween episode, which has historically been a fan favorite.
He is handling all of this while also following strict safety protocols due to COVID-19. According to Fishman, everyone gets tested every day, and there's a lot of extra steps like one-way walkways, keeping things sanitized, and washing hands, but in some ways it also builds camaraderie and community:
There's an element where you're coming together to make something great.
