ABC’s “The Goldbergs” is getting a new showrunner.
Series creator Adam F. Goldberg is stepping down as showrunner ahead of the comedy’s upcoming seventh season, TheWrap has confirmed. He will be replaced by executive producers Chris Bishop and Alex Barnow.
The shift comes just months after Goldberg decamped from his deal at “Goldbergs” studio Sony Pictures Television for an overall deal at ABC Studios. Bishop and Barnow, who have both been with the comedy since its debut, have individual deals with Sony that keep them at the studio through 2021.
Earlier this month, “The Goldbergs” spinoff series “Schooled” also saw a showrunner change, with “The Kids Are Alright” creator Tim Doyle taking over for series co-creator Marc Firek, who exited the comedy to focus on other projects.
Goldberg remains on with “The Goldbergs” as executive producer alongside Barnow, Bishop, Doug Robinson and Annette Davis. The series is produced by Happy Madison, Doug Robinson Productions and Adam F. Goldberg Productions, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
