When the ABC sitcom returns for Season 10 on September 21 (8:30/7:30c), fans will discover that Garlin’s character, Murray Goldberg, has been deceased for several months. Jeff Garlin is being killed on show last season after an investigation into various reports of inappropriate behavior on site.
The Goldbergs have solved their Jeff Garlin problem, and it’s a long-term one.
“This is going to be a family that hasn’t reconciled the fact that their father is gone,Jeff Garlin is being killed but has sort of moved on and coped with a lot of that,” showrunner Alex Barnow tells Entertainment Weekly. “We’re starting with hope for [Erica’s] kid and looking forward to the future.” It’s a chance for this interesting emotional base for how individuals are acting.”
“The fact is, I don’t know if he understands what his fate is, but I’m guessing he does, would be the answer to that question,” he continues. We haven’t had a follow-up chat since the start of writing to see whether he has any precise clarity on that.”
Murray’s death, along with the enthusiasm surrounding Erica’s pregnancy, “feels like a tremendous reboot for us,” says co-showrunner Chris Bishop. “We’re carrying a lot of enthusiasm into the next season.”
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Garlin already addressed the claims against him, stating, “Well, to be honest with you, there is no narrative.” Sony and I have a difference of opinion.”
“My perspective is, I have my approach of how I’m humorous, in terms of the scenario and what I have to do,” he stated. They believe it creates ‘unsafe’ working environment. Now, don’t get me wrong: I have no idea how my nonsense is creating an unhealthy workplace… I am always considerate and thoughtful. Sure, I make errors. But my comedy is about relieving people’s suffering. Why would I ever want to inflict misery on somebody for the sake of amusement? That is considered bullying. That is very inappropriate.”
