Alex Barnow and Chris Bishop unveiled how “The Goldbergs” will deal with Garlin’s messy departure from the series midway through its ninth season.
“This is going to be a family that has not reconciled the fact that their father’s gone but has sort of moved on and has dealt with a lot of that,” Barnow says.
The second step they have to jump ahead several months in time to alleviate the family’s grieving
Step three of the plan consists of welcoming a new baby to The Goldberg family as newlyweds Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Geoff (Sam Lerner) have their firstborn.
“It honestly feels like a huge reboot for us. So we have tons of momentum rolling into this new season,” Bishop says.
“We’re going to have a baby on the show, which will bring both the sense of joy to the show and shift dynamics and shift relationships,” Barnow adds
“And putting Beverly [Wendi McLendon-Covey]in a position as a grandma is something that’s obviously a fun and natural fit. So it’s been a joy to break new stories of new dynamics amongst our characters.”
