The Goldbergs Season 7: Premiere Date, Cast, Recap, Update

‘The Goldbergs’ is an American period sitcom that airs on ABC. The series first premiered on September 24, 2013. It has been created by Adam F. Goldberg and is narrated by Patton Oswalt. Adam F. Goldberg Productions, Happy Madison Productions, Doug Robinson Productions, and Sony Pictures Television are the companies backing the project, while Dan Levy acts as the producer.

The series is based on Goldberg’s childhood and family in the 1980s, complete with the childhood version of himself. It shows the reality of the 1980s through the eyes of a young boy. Many of the scenes in the show are reenacted from the videotaped events in the life of the creator of the series. It is a very entertaining show which takes you back to the 80s. Naturally, the series garnered a solid fan base, because everyone loves nostalgia, and the humor on the show also won praise from critics.

The Goldbergs Cast: Who is in it?

The main cast members of ‘The Goldbergs’ include Wendi McLendon-Covey as Beverly Goldberg, the matriarch who is so overprotective that she is often called smother instead of mother. Sean Giambrone appears as Adam Fredrick Goldberg, the youngest child who is a pop culture fan, Jeff Garlin plays Murray Christian Goldberg, the father, Troy Gentile appears as Barry Norman Goldberg, the middle child in the family.

Hayley Orrantia plays Erica Dorothy Goldberg, the bad-tempered oldest child, while George Segal is seen as Albert Solomon, the laid back father to Beverly. AJ Michalka appears as Lainey Lewis, best friend to Erica and Sam Lerner as ‘Madman’ Geoff Schwartz, one of Barry’s closest friends. However, the main cast is supplemented by an expansive list of supporting cast members, and guest stars including the likes of Chuck Norris and Weird Al Yankovic. They make things interesting as we see the Goldbergs interact with them, and the plot of the show is driven forth by such interactions.

Hopefully, in the upcoming season, the series will continue in a similar manner and the main cast will return and be joined by new characters who will make things more interesting for the show.

The Goldbergs Plot: What is it about?

The main plot of ‘The Goldbergs’ is set in Jenkintown in Pennsylvania in the 1980s. The series looks at that era through the eyes of a child, who narrates what went on with his family and makes references to real businesses of that time. ‘The Goldbergs’ is based on the childhood of the showrunner and some of the videotaped events of his childhood are reenacted on the show.

What stands out about the series is how it taps into the nostalgia of the 80s thanks to the showrunner tapping into his personal memories of childhood. Nonetheless, the series does not have obtuse references to the 80s, so technically, you do not have to be a person born during that time to understand what is going on. This is a brilliant move in order to target a wider audience set. This is because older people will love the show due to the hints of nostalgia, while younger people will watch it out of curiosity to know how everyday life really was in the 80s. That is exactly what we are offered here. The Goldbergs is nothing more than an average working-class family who is trying their best to keep their children alive. With plenty of love and yelling on the episodes, they get through their days, sticking together and doing honest work.

The series makes an attempt to connect what is historical to what is fanciful, and it does so in the way the narrator connects what happened with the present day world. This is where the humor of the show lies, and we also realize how much was taken for granted in those days. In showing an everyday family, the series also serves to contrast the two-time periods, and how families have come along, and how mindsets have changed since then. Overall, to make a cliched statement, those times were simpler, and the way it is presented makes one yearn to be there with the Goldbergs. This is another part of the show that expertly handled, since, despite the comic elements, one is never laughing at the family, rather we are always rooting for them.

Hopefully, in the upcoming season, the show will continue in a similar manner and we will get to see more of how this family lived together and where they are now, all against the backdrop of a world that grows increasingly more complex, and an America that becomes more alienated with the rise of commodity fetishism. Hopefully, more drama and humor await us while the aforementioned undertones serve as eye openers.

The Goldbergs Season 7 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘The Goldbergs’ Season 6 premiered on September 26, 2018. On May 11, 2019, ABC officially renewed the show for a seventh season. Shows like these always have content since the writers can use the nostalgia to their advantage, and this case, the showrunner can come up with more of his family’s stories to drive the plot forward.

Even though no release date was announced, our best guess is that ‘The Goldbergs’ Season 7 is likely to release sometime around September 2019, going by the pattern of release of the previous seasons on the network. We will update this section as soon as we hear more.
