The 10 Emmy nominated actor was banned from the ABC TV series after allegations of on-set misconduct.
If you missed the previous episodes, last December the actor Jeff Garlin was fired from the hit ABC comedy The Goldbergs following an internal human resources investigation which found his misconduct on set as reported by some colleagues. For months, the question of what the fate of his character – the breadwinner Murray Goldberg – will be in season 10 went unanswered. Now the mystery has been solved. Murray is dead.
The Goldbergs killed Murray
The co-showrunner Alex Barnow revealed to Entertainment Weekly that, when the 21st of September The Goldbergs will return to the air in the United States, viewers will discover that the patriarch of the Goldberg family has been dead for several months. “We will find a family that has not yet accepted the fact that the father is gone, but that has moved on and dealt with a lot of what happened,” said Barnow. “Let’s start with optimism for the baby [di Erica] that is about to be born and looking to the future “.
The loss of Murray, coupled with the excitement surrounding Erica’s pregnancy (Hayley Orrantia), “seems like a great reboot for us,” added the co-showrunner Chris Bishop. “We have a lot of momentum in this new season.”
