Jeff Garlin’s character on “The Goldbergs” will be dead when the 10th season of the sitcom premieres on ABC next month.


In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunners Chris Bishop and Alex Barnow explained how they wrote Garlin’s Murray Goldberg, the patriarch of the Goldberg family, out of the show. The latest season of “The Goldbergs” is set to debut nearly a year after Garlin departed the program following a human-resources investigation into his behavior on set.

"[Garlin is] not going to be on the season, obviously,” Barnow told Entertainment Weekly in a Q&A published Tuesday.

Barnow added that he has informed Garlin that “he’s not being replaced” by another actor.
