Season nine of the ABC sitcom The Goldbergs handled Jeff Garlin’s exit

following an HR investigation last year by using strange-looking CGI stand-ins to replace the comedian’s character,

Murray Goldberg. But as of season ten, The Goldbergs’ Murray will be killed off and the series will time-jump to a few months after his passing

Garlin was fired midway through filming the ninth season for what one employee called “extremely verbally and emotionally abusive” conduct on set.

Writer  Noel Murray tweeted an eerie clip of the cursed stand-in approach on March 14 with the caption

“They should either cancel The Goldbergs or kill off Jeff Garlin’s character because the workarounds

they’ve been using this season ain’t working.” Now he’s gotten his wish.
