Axed: The Goldbergs confirms final season

80s themed comedy is bowing out after a decade themselves.

US sitcom The Goldbergs has confirmed its current tenth season will be its final.

Set to conclude in the US in May, it is currently the longest-running live-action network comedy on air stateside, but recently lost George Segal, who passed away in 2021, while star Jeff Garlin exited the show following a misconduct investigation.

“We are so proud of the 10 years we were able to spend with The Goldbergs,” said Craig Erwich, president, ABC Entertainment, Hulu and Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals: “This is an incredible team and we’re so thankful for the joy and entertainment they brought to so many over this time. We look forward to celebrating their final chapter along with the fans in the weeks ahead.”

“It’s been an honor to be part of The Goldbergs for the last decade. I’m really proud of what we accomplished with the show, and I’m so lucky to have had such a rewarding experience. I will miss my TV family and every last crew member,” said Wendi McLendon-Covey.

“Thanks to our brilliant writers for giving us thoughtful story arcs year after year, and for being so collaborative. Thanks to the best EPs in the business. And thanks to all our fans (the Goldnerds) for being so sweet and supportive. My heart is full… but I definitely hope I never see another pair of shoulder pads for the rest of my life.”

The Goldbergs screens in Australia on Seven.

  1. It was a pretty good sitcom filled with 80s nostalgia and crazy stories about Goldberg’s family for 6 seasons. Then Goldberg quit as showrunner and went to work for ABC, which produced a failed spinoff and another failed show. The show missed his deft handling of the nostalgia, pop culture references and Adam’s character. The writers turned it into a show about Eric and Geoff and Barry at college, the rest was all about Beverly even the school plots with Adam the buty of all the jokes, especially after they lost Murray. It was all downhill with only a few good episodes after that. S9 was terrible, S10 rated 20% lower than that. I wasn’t going to watch a season about Adam dropping out of film school around the house and Eric’s pregnancy even if Seven showed it.

  2. Could never get into this show despite numerous tries. Even George Segal could not convince me to stay with it
    To me it tried to be a mix of Roseanne meets The Wonder Years. But hey, it lasted 10 years.
