For Season 10, Jeff Garlin's character on 'The Goldbergs' was killed off.

"This is going to be a family that hasn't reconciled the fact that their father is no longer alive, but has sort of moved on and dealt with a lot of that," Barnow said. "So we're starting with hope for a baby and looking forward to the future." It's a chance for this interesting emotional basis for how people are acting."

"It honestly feels like a huge reboot for us," Bishop added. As a result, we have a lot of momentum heading into the new season."

"The family has already grieved, unlike Pops [George Segal] and the Season 9 premiere, where they're dealing with it kind of fresh," Barnow explained. "Jeff [Garlin] won't be in the series this year, and the stories so far have largely been about looking forward rather than back."

When asked if Garlin is aware that his character is being killed off, Barnow replied, "I've talked to Jeff, and he's aware that he's not being replaced." The truth is, I'm not sure if he knows what his fate is, but I'm assuming he does, so that's the answer to that question. We haven't had a follow-up conversation since the start of writing to see if he has any specific clarity on that."

In discussing Season 10, the showrunners revealed that viewers will see more of Pop-Pop (Judd Hirsch) as Murray's death brings the family closer together. They also hinted that David Hasselhoff would appear as himself in a guest role.

Garlin will be completely absent from "The Goldbergs" for the first time in the show's nine-year run on ABC. Garlin was filming the 15th and 16th episodes of Season 9's 22 episodes when he was abruptly fired due to the allegations. However, the star was still seen in off-camera dialogue from previous episodes and unused takes, as well as previously shot images. Garlin was still getting paid for his work on the show at the time.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Garlin previously addressed the allegations against him, saying, "Well, to be honest with you, there is no story." Sony and I have a difference of opinion."

"My opinion is, I have my process about how I'm funny, in terms of the scene and what I have to do," he continued. They believe it creates a 'unsafe' working environment. Now, don't get me wrong: I have no idea how my nonsense is creating an unsafe workplace... I am always considerate and thoughtful. Sure, I make mistakes. But my comedy is about relieving people's suffering. Why would I ever want to inflict pain on anyone for the sake of amusement? That is considered bullying. That is completely inappropriate."

When "The Goldbergs" fans tune in for the 10th season of the ABC sitcom this fall, Jeff Garlin's patriarch Murray will have been dead for months.

Showrunners Alex Barnow and Chris Bishop revealed how "The Goldbergs" will deal with Garlin's messy departure midway through the ninth season in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Garlin's departure was the result of a "mutual agreement" between himself and Sony Pictures Television following an HR investigation into his on-set behavior, which the actor attributed to "silliness."

Season 10, which premieres on September 21, will also introduce a new member to the family, as newlyweds Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Geoff (Sam Lerner) welcome their first child.
