We Finally Know
How The Goldbergs
Season 10
Will Kickoff
Without Murray
By PATRICK PHILLIPS
Fans of "The Goldbergs" were stunned when longtime series star Jeff Garlin, who'd portrayed patriarch Murray Goldberg, unexpectedly left the show in late 2021, under a cloud of controversy. Now, after the show’s recent renewal for Season 10 and the awkward handling of his Season 9 absence, the show has finally decided how to handle Garlin's exit.
Much like ABC's post-"Roseanne" hit "The Conners," it’s been decided that the best option was to simply kill the character off. "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," said showrunner Alex Barnow.
"It honestly feels like a huge reboot for us. So we have tons of momentum rolling into this new season," added showrunner Chris Bishop. It remains to be seen how well the show will work in the long run without its departed star, but if the final few episodes of Season 9 are any indication, "The Goldbergs" will likely be just fine.
