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

Former child star Michael Fishman has ended his 14-year role as David Jacob “DJ” Conner on The Conners just weeks before the season five premiere, which airs September 21.

The first hint that something was amiss was last week when ABC unveiled the season five poster excluding 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.

Taking leave! Former child star Michael Fishman has ended his 14-year role as David Jacob “DJ” Conner on The Conners just eight days before season five airs on September 21 (pictured Friday).

Fishman, who directed five episodes, made his final appearance as a DJ on the May 18 episode entitled “A Judge and a Priest Walk Into a Living Room…” of Bruce Helford’s critically acclaimed show.

“The season finale of @theconnersabc airs tonight,” the Fish’s Call Sheet host and producer wrote wistfully at the time.

“I want to honor everyone who makes the production possible. That’s the bulk of our amazing team.”

Michael was famously just six years old when he took on the role of the rambunctious son of Roseanne and Dan Conner from Sal Barone on the original ABC sitcom, which aired for ten seasons before its 2018 revival.

A week ago, Lionsgate’s Grindstone Entertainment Group acquired the North American distribution rights to Fishman-producing Nicole Mejia’s directorial debut, A Place in the Field.

The CEO of Mclusive Media – who has 122,000 social media followers – gushed on Instagram: “So proud to be part of this amazing team to help produce this film!”

Michael may also want to spend more time with his three children – daughter Isabelle, son Aaron and daughter Camille – following the death of his son Larry in 2020 from an overdose.

Fishman continues to serve as CEO of his environmental charity, Altruistic Acres, and as chairman of his social charity, WeComend.
