‘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.
