The upcoming Season 6 premiere of “The Goldbergs” is getting the John Hughes treatment, ABC announced Tuesday.
The sitcom’s annual 1980s movie tribute will be “Sixteen Candles,” just in time to celebrate Adam (Sean Giambrone)’s sixteenth birthday. But in the episode, which airs on Wednesday Sept. 26, his parents are distracted with Barry (Troy Gentile) and Lainey’s engagement and Erica (Hayley Orrantia)’s band ambitions. Just like the classic movie, his whole family has forgetted the biggest day of his teenage life. Adam tries to leverage the situation to build up some social cred.
ABC also announced that the “Sunday Fun and Games” line-up isn’t going anywhere.
“Celebrity Family Feud” has been renewed for its fifth season, and “The $100,000 Pyramid” and “To Tell the Truth” for their fourth seasons, it was announced Tuesday at ABC’s press day at the summer Television Critics Association press tour.
Hosted by Steve Harvey, highlights from the fourth season of “Celebrity Family Feud” included Team Kardashian vs. Team West, Stephen Curry vs. Chris Paul, Team Ice-T & Coco vs. Vivica A. Fox, Amber Riley vs. Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott, “Grey’s Anatomy” vs. “Station 19,” Inside the NBA vs. MLB All-Stars, and Laurie Hernandez vs. Shawn Johnson.
“The Goldbergs” is executive produced by Adam F. Goldberg, Doug Robinson, Alex Barnow, Chris Bishop, Lew Schneider, David Guarascio and Andrew Secunda. The sitcom is produced by Happy Madison, DR Productions and Adam F. Goldberg Productions, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
