ABC has renewed The Goldbergs for a ninth season. The comedy chronicles creator Adam F. Goldberg’s chaotic but loving family as he grew up in the Reagan era.
The ’80s-set series stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia, Sam Lerner and Jeff Garlin.
The Goldbergs is produced by Happy Madison, Doug Robinson Productions and Adam F. Goldberg Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Goldberg, Doug Robinson, Alex Barnow, Chris Bishop, Annette Davis, Mike Sikowitz, David Guarascio and McLendon-Covey are executive producers.
The Goldbergs suffered a huge loss with the passing of George Segal, its Oscar-nominated co-star, before the end of Season 8. Segal died March 23 of complications from bypass surgery at the age of 87. He was a series regular on the family comedy for eight years, playing Albert “Pops” Solomon, Beverly’s (McLendon-Covey) laid-back widower father and a World War II Veteran.
The last episode he filmed before his death, Episode 16 of the show’s current eighth season, aired on April 7.
The news came the same day ABC made decisions on several scripted series, including bringing back Black-ish for an eighth and final season along with renewing The Conners, The Rookie, A Million Little Things and rookie Home Economics. Call Your Mother was canceled after one season.
