Showrunner killed off Jeff Garlin:
Alex Barnow said in an interview published Tuesday by EW:
“I’ve had a conversation with Jeff, and he’s aware that he’s not being replaced. The truth is, I don’t know if he knows what his fate is, but I’m assuming he knows, would be the answer to that question,”
As Murray’s passing draws the family closer, the showrunners revealed that Pop-Pop (Judd Hirsch) will appear more frequently in Season 10. Additionally, they hinted that David Hasselhoff will appear as himself.
Absence of Murray on Season 10:
In season 10 of “The Goldbergs,” Garlin will not make an appearance at all for the first time in the program’s nine-season run. The claims caused Garlin to be unexpectedly sacked from the 22-episode Season 9 of the show. While the 15th and 16th episodes were being recorded. Nevertheless, the celebrity continued to make cameos in off-camera exchanges from earlier episodes and unused takes, as well as in previously taken photos. Garlin was still receiving payment at the time for his work on the program.
