The Conners are going live!

The cast of the hit ABC series – Laurie Metcalf, Emma Kenney, Alicia Goranson, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, John Goodman and Jayden Rey – got together to celebrate the resurrection of Lanford’s favorite diner, the Lunch Box, on Wednesday (January 8) as part of the ABC Winter TCA 2020 at The Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif.

Laurie and the cast announced that they will go live on the night of the New Hampshire Primary, Tuesday, Feb. 11, Variety reports, and ABC News’s coverage of the real-time results of that political event will be incorporated into the broadcast, which will be performed and air live on both the east and west coasts.

This still-to-be-titled episode of The Conners will start with Mark (Ames McNamara) watching the results of the primary for a school report with Harris (Emma Kenney), who is apathetic to the electoral process and believes money’s influence in politics means real change is impossible. This allows the rest of the family to weigh in with their usual differing takes on why people should vote, including the idea of voting for a candidate that you may not love but who you think will “screw you the least.”

That same day, the cast of For LifeTimothy Busfield, Nicholas Pinnock and Indira Varma – joined executive producers Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Isaac Wright Jr., Alison Greenspan, Doug Robinson, and co-creator Hank Steinberg at their press panel.

United We Fall cast – Will Sasso, Christina Vidal, Ella Grace Helton and Guillermo Díaz – also joined their executive producer Julia Gunn and co-creator Julius Sharpe at the press panel for their ABC series.
