Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the childhood of series creator Adam F. Goldberg, this sitcom follows a screwed-up but loving family living in the '80s. Beverly is an overbearing, overprotective matriarch and shopaholic, who has a big mouth -- and she's not afraid to use it. Her husband, Murray, is a rageaholic, who struggles to remain calm after heart surgery, especially because he parents by calling each kid a moron. Adam, the youngest son at 11 years old, is a camera-wielding future director who's crushing on an older woman, and will grow up to be the series creator. Adam's older sister, Erica, is a 17-year-old, hot, and crass high-school senior, who manipulates and beats up on her younger brother. Barry, the middle child at 16, is a grade A spaz. And then there's Pops, an old Don Juan schooling his young grandson, Adam, in the ways of love. THE GOLDBERGS debuted on ABC on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT, as Barry woke up on his birthday expecting to get a car, but was disappointed at the kitchen table when Beverly told him he wasn't ready for that responsibility.

THE GOLDBERGS returned for its second season on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 8:30pm ET/PT on ABC. In the season opener, "Love Is a Mix Tape," Adam makes a mix tape to express his feelings for Dana after spending a summer apart...only to have it intercepted by Beverly who thinks it's meant for her! Adam must carefully navigate not hurting Beverly's feelings as his relationship with Dana progresses. Meanwhile, Barry gets a fake ID, but after showing it off to the entire school, it's confiscated, and Barry needs to make good on some promises he made to his classmates.

Season 3 of THE GOLDBERGS premiered on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 8:30pm ET/PT on ABC. In the season opener, "A Kick-Ass Risky Business Party," Lainey, Erica and Barry plan a big RISKY BUSINESS-inspired party at her home, just like the movie, while Lainey's dad is out of town. Later, when the party gets out of control, Beverly jumps to the rescue and Lainey is happy to have a mother figure like Beverly in her life, but for how long? Meanwhile, Adam's relationship with Dana by talking to her for hours on the phone angers Murray. As a result, Adam tries a bunch of new ways to contact her since she's moved away.

The fourth season of THE GOLDBERGS premiered on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT on ABC with an episode that pays homage to 1980s John Hughes classic flick BREAKFAST CLUB. In the season opener, "Breakfast Club," Adam works on his new persona for the first day of high school that he hopes will up his coolness level. Meanwhile, Beverly gets her teaching certification to become a substitute teacher. But when she is demoted to sub-janitor, she sends the Goldberg kids to a Saturday detention, but it is Principal Ball who must oversee the kids. Later, Murray arrives and takes over where he gives an important lesson.

On Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, ABC premiered the fifth season of THE GOLDBERGS. The season opener, "Weird Science," features Ilan Mitchell-Smith, who guest stars as Mr. Connelly in an episode paying homage to the movie WEIRD SCIENCE. Beverly and Murray move Erica into college where her roommate is also named Erica. Later, Beverly has a hard time letting go and ends up sleeping over in the dorm, much to Erica's dismay. Meanwhile, Adam tries to give Barry the perfect girlfriend, even trying to build one like in the movie WEIRD SCIENCE, as he embarks into his senior year.

Season 6 of THE GOLDBERGS premiered on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT on ABC. In the season opener, "Sixteen Candles," it's Adam's 16th birthday, but his parents are too distracted by Barry and Lainey's engagement and Erica's band ambitions to remember their youngest son's big day. But the situation presents an opportunity for Adam to ask Erica to put him on the high school social map. Meanwhile, Beverly thinks she can scare Barry and Lainey straight with the reality of being adults.

Temperamental middle child and groom-to-be Barry is psyched to top off his legendary year by marrying the love of his life, Lainey Lewis, who's back in town and amping up to join one of the zaniest families on the block. Meanwhile, oldest sister Erica dropped out of college to pursue her lifelong dream of rock stardom. The only catch is now she has to chase that dream under the same roof she grew up in and so recently escaped. One person thrilled Erica's back is her lovable, dopey, doting boyfriend, Geoff Schwartz.
