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.
Inspired by his obsession, Adam helps Beverly plan a murder mystery party for the family; Erica, tasked with declaring her major, bumps up against Barry's cockiness as she considers going the pre-med route.
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.
