The Conners are headed back to the small screen. ABC's Roseanne spinoff is set to kick off its third season on Wednesday, Oct. 21, alongside other titles in the network's fall comedy lineup. As fans prepare for the season premiere, Amazon has just about everything they need to get them ready for a new season of laughs.
The third season of the series is set to touch on several real-world issues that will be all too relatable, including the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. With executive producer Bruce Helford previously acknowledging how the series is "a show that reflects reality," much of the promotional material has showcased how the beloved sitcom family will be handling life amid a pandemic. The Season 3 poster showed the characters wearing face masks, and a recent teaser trailer found Darlene and Becky taking numerous precautions as they went to work at the old Wellman Plastics plant. The season is also set to tackle the 2020 presidential election.
Given how big the season is set to be, it's definitely a must-watch, and there are more than just a few Amazon finds to make the viewing experience as awesome as ever. Scroll down to see some of the must-have items to get you ready for The Conners Season 3.

Roseanne: The Complete Series
As you prepare for a new season of laughs, you may want to consider reminiscing on the past. Amazon has available to purchase the complete Roseanne series for just $31.44. The ABC sitcom originally aired from 1988 to 1997 and quickly became a fan favorite. Two decades after it aired its final episode, ABC announced that it would be reviving the series, which only ran for an ill-dated first season before being revamped as The Conners. For more details on the complete Roseanne DVD collection, view it on Amazon here.
