The Goldbergs will honor George Segal

Back in March, we lost George Segal at the age of 87. On the day that he died, The Goldbergs was filming their season finale, so they were not able to honor Pops on the ABC sitcom.

That was then, and now they are back on the set filming their 9th season. It looks like they will finally be able to honor Pops when the show comes back next month.

Wendi McLendon-Covey shared a photo of her, Hayley Orrantia, Troy Gentile, and Sean Giambrone wearing tracksuits just like his character. Of course, Beverly’s is all bedazzled, just like everything else she wears.

I can’t wait to see how they honor the late actor on the show that is back for an all-new season on September 22nd. I know they will do a good job.


Hey Wendi McLendon-Covey, what big eyes you have?

We know that Wendi McLendon-Covey has big hair on The Goldbergs. Now, we know she has eyes to match.

I just have one question, where is she going to get glasses for those huge peepers?

Tonight at 8p on ABC, someone on The Goldbergs is going to get engaged. That is the ultimate ending to any ’80s RomCom. Therefore, to celebrate the season finale, the art department recreated four posters from the era with the cast.

We get to see them if they starred in Pretty In Pink, Can’t Buy Me Love, Splash, and Mystic Pizza. Which poster do you like best?

ABC picked up The Goldbergs, The Conners, Home Economics, The Rookie, and A Million Little Things for another season. However, they canceled Call Your Mother with Kyra Sedgwick.

The five shows will join The Good Doctor, Station 19, Grey’s Anatomy, Big Sky, Black-ish, Shark Tank, Supermarket Sweep, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, American Idol, and America’s Home Video next season.

Still waiting for their fate are Mixed-ish, American Housewife, For Life, and Rebel.


Tonight is George Segal’s last episode of The Goldbergs

On March 23rd, George Segal passed away due to complications from bypass surgery. Before he died, he shot three episodes of The Goldbergs that were yet to air. Tonight at 8p, his final episode airs on ABC. After the episode is over, the producers, the network, and the studio put together a 45-second tribute to the show’s patriarch.

While we will be saying goodbye to Segal tonight, his character Pops’ death will not be addressed this season. Wendi McLendon-Covey, who plays his daughter on the sitcom, told a Twitter user, “And no, we would NEVER replace George in the role of Pops. If we get a season 9, we will address it then. #TheGoldbergs”

It is better they wait to give him and his character the sendoff he deserves and not rush one out. Even more importantly, ABC needs to pick up the show for a ninth season.

UPDATE: The show’s creator Adam F. Goldberg weighed in on how his show should handle his grandfather’s death.

“Tonight is George’s last episode. Fans are asking what’s planned for Pops,” Goldberg wrote. ”
“Even though my input and stories have not been used this season, I know the way to address this loss is to use my real experience of losing my Grandpa to honor George and my Pops. Hope I’m welcome S9! #JTP”

If they don’t have him work on that episode, then the sitcom does not deserve a 9th season. Let’s be honest, it hasn’t been as enjoyable without him.
