ABC Has Renewed ‘The Goldbergs’ for a Season 9

The beloved comedy, which is set in the ‘80s, stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia, Jeff Garlin, and Sam Lerner. The season 8 finale is set to air on Wednesday, May 19, and is titled, “The Proposal.” If you’re looking for a new favorite comfort show, The Goldbergs has you covered.

You will fall in love with the Goldberg family, which is made up of Beverly, Murray, Pops, Adam, Barry, and Erica. Throughout the series, we see Adam use his video camera to document his family and their lives. What makes this so unique is at the very end of each episode, viewers will see real footage of the actual Goldberg family; many of the events in the footage being what was just seen in the episode.

The synopsis for 8×22 (the season finale) reads, “Geoff shares with the JTP that he is planning on asking Erica to marry him and gives them the engagement ring for safekeeping. Like any good romantic comedy, several miscommunications and misunderstandings between Geoff and Erica’s friends and family result in a potential derailing of the proposal, forcing Adam to step in to keep the couple’s special moment alive.

The cast was quick to share their excitement for the renewal. Gentile posted the news on Instagram, writing, “Very grateful. Season 9. Wow!”

Giambrone added, “A shout out to our wonderful cast, crew, writers, producers, #adamfgoldberg, @sptv, @abcnetwork, and fans. Thank you to all.”

This renewal is definitely well deserved and a huge congrats to everyone involved! Can’t wait to see all that season 9 has in store. Ahead of the season finale, be sure to go watch my interviews with McLendon-Covey, Gentile, and Giambrone.
