Matthew Broderick has been cast as Peter, a new love interest for Laurie Metcalf’s character, on “The Conners,” an ABC spokesperson told TheWrap on Friday. The actor will be making his debut on the “Roseanne” spinoff during the Halloween episode, which airs Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
But before Broderick comes to Lanford, another big guest star will be stopping by, and he’s bringing by a romantic partner too. Yes, Tuesday’s episode, titled “Tangled Up in Blue,” will see the previously-announced return of Johnny Galecki, Darlene’s (Sara Gilbert’s) ex David, who is coming back with new girlfriend Blue (Juliette Lewis).
Justin Long will also recur as Darlene’s new beau, so, drama, drama, drama afoot for the whole Conners family.
