AceShowbizLaurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, John Goodman and Lecy Goranson have scored new contracts for “Roseanne” spin-off “The Conners“, ahead of the hit show’s third season.

Season two of the hit comedy, which debuted in 2018, is currently airing in the U.S., and a third run is expected to be picked up now the castmates’ salaries have been sorted.

Gilbert, Goodman and Metcalf will each add “small bumps” to their reported pay cheques, according to Deadline, while Gorenson has scored a bigger raise to her original $165,000 (£204,000)-per-episode rate.

When talks about a third season began in January, producer Tom Werner told Deadline, “We are very pleased with how the show is doing… and I’m confident that the network will pick up the show for another year… My sense is that there is a lot of enthusiasm about what we are doing.”
