The Goldbergs are back! Our iconic ‘80s family returns for a larger than life ninth season. The gang’s all here, with some surprise guest appearances, and they’re funnier and more heartfelt than ever before. Our favorite Jenkintown family continues to navigate a classic decade, filled with hi-jinks, heart and hilarity. As life unfolds with new challenges, the Goldbergs continue to remind us that there is no bond greater than family and there is nothing they can’t handle with the support of one another.
Orrantia’s film credits include the independent film Cooper and The Castle Hills Gang as well as the feature film God’s Not Dead 2, which included her original song “Silence You.” She can also be seen in Roommates and Schooled. Upcoming, the actress is set to star in the new holiday comedy, The Fight Before Christmas.
She is also a singer and released her first EP The Way Out in 2019. Her recent singles include “Made For This,” “Find Yourself Somebody,” and “Nights and Weekends.”
I had the chance to speak with the actress about Erica’s journey on the show, what fans can expect from season 9, Erica and Geoff’s wedding, her dream storyline for the series, what she’d want to take from set, being part of a show that the whole family can enjoy, her thank you to fans of The Goldbergs, and much more!
