‘The Goldbergs’ is a period sitcom that has been entertaining the viewers since its inception on September 24, 2013. Created by Adam F. Goldberg, the family series is loosely based on the childhood and family of the showrunner, in the 1980s. It showcases the day-to-day activities in the lives of the Goldberg family members from the eyes of the youngest Goldberg, Adam, who videotapes regular events in the household.
Over the years, the show has amassed critical acclaim and approval from the audiences, which has paved the way for the show to spawn seven seasons and a spin-off titled ‘Schooled.’ Season 7 concluded in May 2020, and since then, fans are wondering: will there be a ‘The Goldbergs’ season 8? Let’s find out!
The Goldbergs Season 8 Release Date
‘The Goldbergs’ Season 7 premiered on September 25, 2019, on ABC. It ended its 23-episode run on May 13, 2020.
How does the future look for the show after the seventh season, you may ask? Well, the dysfunctional family sitcom has managed to assemble a dedicated fan-base because of its easy-flowing narrative, the depiction of family values, well-placed humor, and also for recreating the 80s nostalgia. If we couple the reviews with the fact that it is one of the top-rated sitcoms on the network, there was always a high chance that ABC would recommission the series for an eighth season. As expected, the channel has officially confirmed a new season of the series. If things move according to plan, we can expect ‘The Goldbergs’ Season 8 to release sometime in 2021 on ABC.
