Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, or peanut allergies, there was a simpler, awesome time called the '80s. For geeky 11-year old Adam these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other, just with a lot more yelling.
Beverly involves herself in Erica and Barry's relationships; Adam and Brea are cast opposite of each other in the school play, but their excitement for one another's success grows dim when one starts to outshine the other onstage.
ABC announced today that The Goldbergs has been picked up for an eighth season. The good news arrives a week after the veteran comedy wrapped its most-recent run, which ended an episode earlier than planned due to the coronavirus pandemic shutdown.
A consistently-reliable performer for the network, the series ranks as one of its highest rated comedies among adults 18-49. It even spawned 90s-set spin-off Schooled, which ran for two seasons before being cancelled today.
Loosely-based on the childhood of creator Adam F. Goldberg, The Goldbergs takes place in the 1980s and follows an overprotective mother, her hot-tempered husband, and their three kids, who are a handful to say the least.
Look for Season 8 of The Goldbergs to premiere as part the 2020-2021 season.
