The Goldbergs Cast Didn't Know They Were Canceled Until Two Days Before They Wrapped

In fact, Wendi McLendon-Covey says she had actually thought that “The Goldbergs” might be around for another year or so. “We didn’t know,” she said. “I thought maybe we’d squeak out another half-season or full season. It kind of seemed like it might go that way.”

Still, McLendon-Covey, who starred as family matriarch Beverly across the entire run of “The Goldbergs,” was realistic about how lucky they were to last as long as they did. “None of us were prepared, but none of us were surprised either because it has been 10 seasons,” the actor explained. “It’s not like you can say, ‘Ah! Too soon! We haven’t gotten a fair shot!’ No, of course, we got a fair shot, and 10 seasons is phenomenal.”

All the same, the show’s nostalgia started to seep into the cast once they got the news. “We all kind of were wandering around taking pictures of every little thing and just trying to be reverential to every single prop we’ve been looking at,” McLendon-Covey recalled. “I wanted to commit to memory every single one. So that was tough.”

While it is no doubt difficult to say goodbye to your on-set family after 10 years of working together, it sounds like the cast of “The Goldbergs” handled it about as well as you can. However, with 229 episodes to go back to and watch, both the cast and fans have a lot of material to sift through when they feel like a trip down memory lane.
