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.
ABC announced today that The Goldbergs has been picked up for a ninth season. The good news arrives ahead of the comedy's Season 8 finale next week.
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 last year.
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 9 of The Goldbergs to premiere this fall as part the 2021-2022 season, where it will surpass the 200-episode milestone - an impressive accomplishment for a live-action comedy these days.
