Jeff Garlin is likely to exit Goldbergs

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.”
