Conners star Michael Fishman is leaving the Roseanne spin-off ahead of season five… after playing DJ Conner for 14 YEARS

Former child star Michael Fishman has wrapped up his 14-year role as David Jacob ‘DJ’ Conner in The Conners just weeks before the premiere of the fifth season, which airs September 21.

The first hint that something was wrong was last week when ABC revealed the season five poster, which excluded the 40-year-old SoCal native.

TVLine reported Monday that “the door has been left open for the character’s return,” but there are currently no plans to bring back Michael, who only appeared in 36 of the 71 episodes of the Roseanne spin-off.
