The show that revolves around a family in the decade of the ’80s has now been on the air for a decade, and The Goldbergs has seen some big changes along the way. Has this retro sitcom now run out of gas or, is this the start of a new chapter? Will The Goldbergs be cancelled or renewed for season 11? Stay tuned.
A family comedy series, The Goldbergs stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia, Sam Lerner, and Patton Oswalt (voice). Set in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, and loosely based on the experiences of series creator Adam F. Goldberg, this comedy looks at life as seen by a young man growing up in the Goldberg family in the 1980s. Youngest child Adam (Giambrone) is obsessed with movies and spends his time documenting his colorful family’s ups and downs. Mother Beverly (McLendon-Covey) loves to take care of her family and meddle in their lives. Eldest child Erica (Orrantia) dreams of being a pop star if she can only overcome her secret love of all things uncool. Meanwhile, middle child Barry (Gentile) can be emotionally clueless. His best friend, Geoff “Madman” Schwartz (Lerner), is now married to Erica. The 10th season picks up after the death of patriarch Murray (Jeff Garlin), and everyone is back living under the same roof. Erica and Geoff are becoming parents, Adam and Barry are forced to share a bedroom, and Beverly prepares to be a Grandsmother.
