‘The Goldbergs’ Episode Guide (May 17): Erica’s Graduation Arrives

“Graduation Day” Season 4 Finale (05/17/17) – Graduation Day is quickly approaching, and Erica cannot wait to get out of the house, until it dawns on her how much Beverly’s love means to her. She attempts to delay her graduating so she can stay home.

Later, Barry has plans for him and Lainey, but they turn to dust. Meanwhile, Dana makes a surprise visit just as Adam and Jackie officially become a couple, on “The Goldbergs,” WEDNESDAY, MAY 17 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Sam Lerner as Geoff Schwartz, Sean Marquette as Johnny Atkins, Niko Guardado as Ruben Amaro Jr., Bryan Callen as Coach Mellor, David Koechner as Bill Lewis, Stephen Tobolowsky, Quincy Fouse as Taz Money, Dan Fogler as Marvin Goldberg, Natalie Alyn Lind as Dana and Rowan Blanchard as Jackie.

“Graduation Day” was written by Matthew Edsall & Hans Rodionoff. It was directed by Kevin Smith.

The VCR-loving, mixtape-making, spandex-wearing Goldbergs are back! For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam (Sean Giambrone), his wonder years were spent documenting the hilarious and awkward antics of his colorful family.

Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is at her best when she’s meddling, matchmaking and bedazzling her way through life, while Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) parents from the comfort of his recliner in his underpants. Oldest sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) dreams of being a pop star if she can only overcome her secret love of all things uncool.

Then there’s middle child Barry (Troy Gentile) who’s just as in touch with his emotions as he is with his sick rap skills, which is how he landed Erica’s best friend and the hottest girl in school, Lainey (AJ Michalka), as his girlfriend. Rounding out the brood is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who enjoys family time with his grandkids almost as much as his weekly massages.

This season finds the siblings fighting off huggies, snuggies and nubbies, as they navigate what it means to grow up as a Goldberg.
