The Goldbergs Season 10 Update: The tenth season of the well-liked ABC sitcom The Goldbergs seems to be coming shortly, according to Deadline. Wendi McLendon-Covey, who portrays the matriarch of the Goldberg family in the sitcom, has accepted a new deal that will keep her engaged with the team for one additional season.
So even though ABC hasn’t formally renewed the program, a renewal is likely with McLendon-Covey on board. The Goldbergs will join a select group of scripted programs that have seasons that go into double digits if it is picked up for the tenth season.
The Goldbergs is a television series that explores the Goldberg family as they deal with the ups and downs of their frequently hilarious everyday life in an altered version of the 1980s. Most of the story in the series is seen through Adam Goldberg, the youngest of the Goldberg siblings.
Adam F. Goldberg is the program’s creator, based mainly on his upbringing. The core cast of the program also includes Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia, and Sam Lerner, in addition to McLendon-Covey.
McLendon-Covey’s new contract marks the start of a positive chapter for the program, which has had a tough year, involving the death of two prominent cast members. George Segal, who portrayed Albert ‘Pops’ Solomon on the sitcom, died on March 23, 2021.
Furthermore, Jeff Garlin, who plays the father of the Goldberg family, left the program in December following repeated complaints of misconduct and subsequent HR inquiries into the charges. As a result, the show’s renewal was in doubt.
One unknown thing is how Murray will be written out of The Goldbergs season 10, though The likely outcome would be an unforeseen off-screen demise. The emotional thrust of the season 9 finale was Adam graduating from senior school and Beverly’s issues with the understanding that all of her children will be leaving the nest.
There was also the startling news that Erica is pregnant with Geoff’s kid, despite her decision not to go on touring with Cyndi Lauper. This offers the possibility of witnessing how Beverly performs as a grandma, which may be especially interesting now that Murray and Pops are also absent.
The Goldbergs has been a consistent success for ABC and an anchor of the network’s Wednesday comedy roster this season, staying the network’s top program on the night.
The Goldbergs is presently the longest-running live-action television comedy, which has obvious value for ABC, even though the syndication game is no longer as profitable as it once was for shows with 100+ episodes. Season 10 would bring The Goldbergs to about 230 episodes, a significant accomplishment in this day and age of cord-cutting.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding its renewal, The Goldbergs has been a statistical success for ABC, prompting a spin-off, Schooled. However, the spin-off, which featured AJ Michalka, Bryan Callen, and Tim Meadows from the original program, as well as Brett Dier, was canceled after two seasons.
