ABC will say farewell to ‘The Goldbergs’ this season.
The Disney-owned broadcast network’s longest-running scripted comedy series will conclude with its current 10th season, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The series, which has weathered the departures of star Jeff Garlin following multiple HR complaints, is produced by Sony Pictures Television. ABC’s lack of ownership on the series, paired with declining linear ratings and pricey licensing fees for an aging series, made an 11th season increasingly unlikely.
'The Goldbergs' was created by Adam F. Goldberg and was considered a passion project for the nerdy writer. The semi-autobiographical comedy about a Jewish family in 1980-something has been bounced around ABC’s schedule during its run and was used at times to launch a second night of comedy on the network.
