[ # ] George Segal’s final episode of The Goldbergs will air on April 7th
March 24th, 2021 under The Goldbergs

ABC/The Goldbergs

George Segal passed away yesterday at the age of 87 from bypass surgery complications. His death was sudden and unexpected, so he was still working on The Goldbergs just weeks before his death. Therefore, he will still be seen in a couple of more episodes of the ABC sitcom. His last two episodes will air next Wednesday and the one after that.

His loss is being felt by the people he worked with on the show over the last 8 years, and they expressed their loss. To see what they each said, then

The Goldbergs’ staff – “On behalf of everyone at the Goldbergs we are devastated at the loss of our dear friend, George. He was kind, sweet, beyond talented and funny. George was the true epitome of class and he touched all of our lives so deeply. It was an honor and a privilege to have him as a colleague and friend all of these years. It is no surprise to any of us that knew him so well that he is a true national treasure. He will be missed by all. POPS, we will miss your banjo playing and your infectious laugh. Rest in peace.”

ABC said – “For eight years, George Segal made us laugh as Pops on ‘The Goldbergs,’ but his legacy in the entertainment world spans decades. His talent has left an indelible mark and we’re grateful for the laughter and joy he has given us all. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his wife, Sonia, and his family during this difficult time.”

Sony Pictures Television – “We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of George Segal. He was a true icon and legend in this business and an integral member of our Sony family. George brightened the screen whenever he was on camera and was a warm and genuine gentleman. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones. We will miss him greatly.”

Show Creator Adam F. Goldberg – “Today we lost a legend. It was a true honor being a small part of George Segal’s amazing legacy. By pure fate, I ended up casting the perfect person to play Pops. Just like my grandfather, George was a kid at heart with a magical spark. I think these memories say it all…”

Show Creator’s sMother Beverly Goidberg – “Feeling sad this morning with the loss of George Segal. I feel like I’m losing my dad all over again. He was so much like my father and was always curious to hear everything about my dad so that he could play him to perfection. Thank you George for re-creating all my memories RIP”

Sean Giambrone, who plays Adam F. Goldberg – “My heart is broken. I lost a dear friend. Working with George was an honor and some of the happiest moments of my life. What a sweet & wonderful man. He was my confidant & teacher. When he smiled it changed my day. I wish everyone could have met him. I love you George and I’ll miss you so much. My prayers are with the family.”

Hayley Orrantia, who plays Erica Goldberg – “To me, George Segal was invincible so I’m having a hard time believing that he is really gone. He was an absolute light that illuminated every room he walked into. His laugh was utterly infectious and so rewarding if you were the one who got him to do it. He had the most beautiful stories that always ended in a perfect punch line. He showed me what it really means to be an actor. What it takes. I am devastated that I won’t get to hear him laugh again. My love and prayers go out to his family 💜”

Troy Gentile, who plays Barry Goldberg – “The world lost an incredible person today. Love you with all my heart George. I am just grateful that you knew my name. Rest in Paradise Legend. ❤️”

Cedric Yarbrough, who plays Vic – “The best. I’m extremely sad to hear about the untimely passing of Mr. #GeorgeSegal today. He was so damn smart & sweet & professional & I loved working w/ the guy. If I could make him crack w/ something silly I felt I won. To have him smile @ you was a real blessing & a confidence booster. He always made me feel like I belonged. My condolences to his #TheGoldbergs film family & the Segal family! Goodbye George. We love you. Thanks you. ❤️🙏🏽❤️”
