at .

The Goldbergs will make it to a tenth season at ABC.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, The Goldbergs Season 10 has officially been ordered, with star and EP Wendi McLendon-Covey signing a new deal to return.

The outlet also says that the deal includes an option for a potential 11th season, should the network and creatives want to continue on for more.

The Election - The Goldbergs

The Goldbergs currently ranks as ABC's most-watched and highest-rated comedy series, coming in at 3.2 million viewers and a 0.6 rating.

It also commands strong ratings growth with delayed viewing on DVR (rising to 4 million viewers and a 0.8 rating).

The Conners edges out the show's total viewer tally in Live + 7.

While the numbers always hinted at a renewal, series that are longer into their runs have more difficult negotiations for a renewal due to the rising cost of the talent and the license fee.

The series also courted controversy this season, with Jeff Garlin exiting following several complaints about his on-set behavior.

Garlin and Sony Pictures Television mutually agreed that the actor would bow out of the show, despite it not being addressed on-screen.

A body double was employed for Murray, and Garlin's face was super-imposed during post-production.

The move did not go unnoticed, with several people criticizing the handling of the situation via social media.

McLendon-Covey broke her silence on Garlin's exit in March.

“This season threw us for a loop because a.) it’s hard to incorporate someone who doesn’t want to be there and wants to leave mid-scene,” McLendon-Covey wrote on Twitter.

"And b.) we werent about to re-write the 2nd half of the season. We’re doing our best.”
