ABC ‘cancels’ beloved sitcom after 10 seasons following major cast changes and on-set scandals with its main star

ABC ‘cancels’ beloved sitcom after 10 seasons following major cast changes and on-set scandals with its main star

A BELOVED ABC series has been cancelled, according to a new report.

The Goldbergs will come to an end with its current 10th season after nearly a decade on the air.

The Goldbergs has not been renewed by ABC and will come to end with the season 10 finale in May, according to Deadline.

The outlet cites dwindling ratings for the 80s-set sitcom while popular newcomer Abbott Elementary has been renewed for a second season.

The Goldbergs has suffered some major cast loses in recent years including Jeff Garlin, who stepped down in 2021 following misconduct allegations.

The show currently stars Wendi McLendon-Cove, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile and Hayley Orrantia, and is the longest running live-action network comedy series on the air.

Produced by Adam F. Goldberg, The Goldbergs is set in a suburban Pennsylvanian home during the Reagan era. 

A weeknight staple for ABC since 2013, the series has racked up over 200 episodes, and it achieved ratings of 8.37million at its peak.

Several other dramas are yet to be renewed by ABC for another season, although Grey’s Anatomy – Station 19, The Rookie: Rookie Feds, and The Good Doctor are all expected to get the green light to continue soon.

ABC declined to comment when Deadline reached out about The Goldbergs.

2021 was a trying year for The Goldbergs as the show lost two of its main cast members.

George Seagal, who played Albert “Pops” Solomo, died in March aged 87 of complications from a bypass surgery.


Meanwhile, Jeff left in December following multiple accusations of misconduct on set and HR investigations.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star was accused of engaging in a “pattern of verbal and physical conduct that made people feel uncomfortable.”

But Jeff denied any claims of wrongdoing, telling Vanity Fair that “there was no… nothing physical by any stretch of the imagination.”

He also maintained that he “was not fired” from the show.

The actor claimed his sense of humor on set had been misinterpreted.

“If someone misses a joke, that’s unfortunate to me. I don’t like it,” he told Vanity Fair.

Jeff’s character, patriarch Murray Goldberg, was killed off before season 10, which has suffered the lowest ratings in the show’s history.

The final episodes of The Goldbergs air Wednesdays at 8.30 p.m. on ABC.
