The 1980s-set comedy The Goldbergs has been renewed for its 10th season on ABC. The renewal arrives a month after star and exec producer Wendi McLendon-Covey signed a new deal to return with producers Sony Pictures Television.
Before McLendon-Covey’s new deal, the future of The Goldbergs was in jeopardy, despite being the longest-running live-action comedy currently airing on broadcast TV. The show had to write in the passing of George Segal (who played the beloved Pops) in Season 9, and is currently working around the departure of star Jeff Garlin, who played patriarch Murray Goldberg. Garlin exited in December following an HR investigation that stemmed from multiple complaints over his behavior on the set of the comedy.
The Goldbergs is a semi-autobiographical comedy based on the childhood of series creator Adam F. Goldberg, who served as showrunner until season seven. Alex Barnow and Chris Bishop have helmed the series since then and exec produce alongside Doug Robinson and series star Wendi McLendon-Covey. The cast also includes Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia and Sam Lerner.
