When Roseanne returned to TV screens last winter, it pretty much blew expectations with massive ratings and (some) politically charged storylines that had everyone talking. And then Roseanne Barr sent out that tweet and it all came crashing down.

For her, anyhow. Because even though Barr was fired and Roseanne was effectively cancelled, The Conners makes its debut this week (premiering Tuesday, Oct. 16 on CTV) without her.

While the revamp was definitely news-worthy, it wasn’t totally groundbreaking. Historically there have been plenty of series that carried on without its leads. Just take a look.

The Conners premieres Tuesday, October 16 at 8 p.m. ET/ 9 p.m. MT on CTV.
