‘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.

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 Season 7 Episode 11 Release Date

‘The Goldbergs’ Season 7 premiered on September 25, 2019. After airing for 10 episodes, the show went on a mid-season break — as it always does — on December 11, 2019. The good news is that fans won’t have to wait for long for the show to come back on the tv screens. ‘The Goldbergs’ Season 7 episode 11 will release on January 15, 2020. You can watch it on ABC.

As far as the future of the show goes, fans should know that the show has seen a downward trend in its ratings. Though, it still remains one of the better performing shows on the network. Given this fact, ABC is unlikely to pull the plug on the show.

The Goldbergs Cast: Who is in it?

The cast of ‘The Goldbergs’ is led by 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. 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.

All the main cast returned for season 7.

The Goldbergs Plot: What is it about?

‘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 Goldberg’s vivid memories. 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 of nostalgia, while younger people will watch it out of curiosity to know how everyday life really was in the 80s.

The Goldbergs is nothing more than an average working-class family who is trying their best to keep their children safe and sound. 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.

In season 7, we get to see more of how this family lived together against the backdrop of a world that grows increasingly more complex, and an America that is becoming more alienated with the rise of commodity fetishism.
