The Goldbergs Season 8 got renewed on May 21, 2020, and will premiere on ABC. The series is an American sitcom that debuted on ABC on September 24, 2013, and has since successfully delivered seven seasons. Created by Adam F. Goldberg, the series received critical acclaim for every season due to its outstanding writing and a strong cast.
The Goldbergs received many calls to continuously renew the show from the critics and the public. And now with the eighth season on board, here’s what we know so far about it.
The Goldbergs Season 8 – Release Date
The eighth season will premiere in fall 2020 or 2021. But a fixed release date has not been revealed.
The executive producer of the show Doug Robinson said that the production for the upcoming season is scheduled to start in August. The cast and crew will take all the necessary precautions on set to prevent any outbreak of COVID-19.
The Goldbergs Season 8 – Episode Count
Season 8 is likely to have 25 episodes instead of the usual 24. As the last episode of season 7 remained unproduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it will be added to the eighth season.
However, the last episode wouldn’t be the premiere episode as The Goldbergs series would continue its tradition of paying homage to a movie in the season premiere. This season will pay tribute to the 1980 film Airplane.

The Goldbergs Season 8 – Expected Plot
The family series shows the childhood and family life of the showrunner. The day-to-day activities of the Goldberg family members are shown. The story is told from the eyes of the youngest Goldberg, Adam.
In season 8, the lives of Goldberg will be shown from the perspective of Adam, who will now be a teenager. He will probably explore his relationship with his girlfriend Brea. Also, we can see Beverly with her overprotective nature towards the kids and Murray could become a little more social.
