[ # ] Tonight is George Segal’s last episode of The Goldbergs
April 7th, 2021 under 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.
