'The Goldbergs' Season 8 — Possible Release Date & More Curious Facts about the Sitcom Cast
With another season done, fans are hoping "The Goldbergs" still has many more seasons to come. Along with the impacts of the coronavirus, here's what we know about the show's future.
The season finale wrapped up last Wednesday, one episode short of what was initially planned before production halted on March 14 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
WHAT OTHER SHOWS STOPPED PRODUCTION
The comedy series was stopped alongside other Sony Pictures TV productions, including "The Blacklist," "The Mel Robbins Show," and "The Wheel of Time."
Meanwhile, shows like "The Good Doctor," "Bone Collector," and "Indebted" were lucky enough to have finished shooting before things got too risky to continue.
WILL THERE BE A SEASON EIGHT
According to Bustle, there's no official renewal confirmation as yet. However, some of the cast has given a strong impression that season eight will be done for sure.
Speaking to On the Red Carpet for ABC, Hayley Orrantia, who plays daughter Erica Goldberg, said: "We are very hopeful and excited for a Season 8, which we usually would film in August."
Family matriarch Beverly Goldberg, played by Wendy McLendon-Covey, took to Twitter to directly respond to a fan who was upset that the finale had arrived sooner than expected.
WHAT MOMENT LEFT ORRANTIA MORTIFIED
Orrantia has also come out with interesting tidbits regarding her time on the show. She spoke about her most embarrassing moment, which occurred while filming.
It happened during a scene which saw her run into the kitchen where suds lay everywhere. As soon as Orrantia began running, she slipped and fell backward, hitting her head on the floor.
Although she wanted to do another take, she realized she had a mild concussion while getting her makeup done soon after. "I was so mortified because I've never had to stop production for any reason," she admitted.
WILL 'SCHOOLED' BE RENEWED
Elsewhere, the show's offshoot, "Schooled," recently wrapped up its second season, which went from having 13 to 22 episodes. A third season hasn't been confirmed as yet.
The production for "Schooled" is also set to begin in August. Last year, fans were eager to see the new show, which focuses on Lainey, played by AJ Michalka.
For Lainey, she's already in the '90s and is ready to start a job as a music teacher at her old high school. The show perfectly suits Michalka, who is an actual musician in real life.
