Christopher Lloyd is coming back to television as he is set to reprise his Roseanne role Lou in an upcoming episode of The Conners.
Lloyd, now 83, appears in the upcoming The Conners episode “The Best Laid Plans, A Contrabassoon and A Sinking Feeling,” according to a report in Deadline. The outlet also published a photo of Lloyd with series star John Goodman.
According to the description, the episode finds Darlene (Sara Gilbert) struggling with construction stress. After a serious accident, she re-evaluates her life and makes a major decision. Lou returns as a combative contrabassoon teacher for Mark (Ames McNamara), where after butting heads with Mark, Dan tries to help the situation but discovers they have similarities.
This marks a recent run of revelation for Lloyd who is also signed on to make a horror movie about the Spirit Halloween stores. He also landed a role in The Mandalorian Season 3 that was announced last month.
Lloyd’s roles of Lou was not part of the original Roseanne run but rather in an episode of the 2018 revival, “No Country for Old Women.”
In the episode he appeared as a new boyfriend for Roseanne and Jackie’s mother, Beverly (Estelle Parsons). As many know the 2018 revival was canceled after ABC fired Roseanne Barr for her allegedly racist tweets. That show was replaced by The Conners.
