The Goldbergs Canceled After Ten Seasons

After 10 years, it's time for ABC to leave 1980something. The Goldbergs, ABC's nostalgic family comedy, will end its run after its current tenth season, with just eight episodes remaining in its run. The comedy series debuted on Tuesday nights in 2013 to middling ratings, but survived and flourished in its move to Wednesdays behind The Middle. It eventually became the block's lead-off series, but steady ratings declines and behind-the-scenes turmoil led to questions about its future in those later seasons. Eventually, it was downgraded to 8:30 ahead of its current season, perhaps a sign of things to come. Its current season - its first and only without longtime star Jeff Garlin - averaged 0.38 in the 18-49 demo, its first Wednesday season below the league average. Wendi McLendon-Covey, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile and Hayley Orrantia starred in the series as its titular family. The Goldbergs aired over 200 episodes over its run, launching one spinoff - the short-lived Schooled.
