The hit ABC sitcom has written out Garlin’s character and will address the reason
ABC has officially greenlit the tenth season for their long-running sitcom, The Goldbergs. But many inside events has caused changes for the show. It involves Jeff Garlin, who plays patriarch Murray Goldberg. We will discuss that in detail below.
The 59-year-old actor has been under investigation for three years before finally leaving in December 2021. His on-set behavior caused human resources to intervene and sort things out. The actor was accused of displaying “a pattern of verbal and physical conduct” that became a cause of discomfort for the cast and crew. Sony Pictures Television finally reached an agreement with Garlin and the actor left the show.
The actor’s departure caused some problems as he left in the middle of season 9. The following episodes had to use a body double for Murray and pre-recorded dialogue. Garlin’s face was superimposed on to the double. Wendy McLendon-Covey, who plays his wife Beverly tweeted about the changes and said it threw them for a loop.
Changes in The Goldbergs Season 10
But now that they have wrapped up season 9, season 10 will have a smoother sail. The show will address Garlin’s departure. We do not have a great deal of information, but Murray is going to be written out early on. We will get to see it when the trailers start coming out.
Garlin’s exit is only the second change that happened to the series. Before season 9 debuted, George Segal, who played Pops in the series, died after complications of a bypass surgery. The show addressed that he quietly passed away in his sleep.
