Things are changing in “The Goldbergs” house during the hit show’s tenth season. Hayley Orrantia (Erica) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (Beverly) are ready to take on their new roles of “mother” and “grandmother” respectively.
Although both Orrantia and McLendon-Covey are not parents in real-life, they drew up inspiration from their friends and their ten years of experience in the roles to prepare for their characters’ new journey. “I think that Erica’s natural tendency, is she can be a little selfish,” says Orrantia. That doesn’t mean she thinks Erica will completely avoid becoming her mother. “Having grown up with Beverly as a mom, I have a feeling we’re going to see smothering tendencies.”
McLendon-Covey has no doubt about it. “I think she’s going to be exactly like her mother, while denying that she is anything like her mother, telling Beverly that she’s totally wrong.”
You can catch an all-new episode of “The Goldbergs” tonight at 8:30pm EDT on ABC and streaming tomorrow on Hulu.

With everyone living back under the same roof and Beverly preparing for her new role as Grandsmotherer, there is more Goldbergs pandemonium than ever! As this new chapter unfolds, the Goldbergs continue to remind us that there is no bond greater than family, and there is nothing they can’t handle with each other’s support.
