The Goldbergs - Last Show with George Segal Tonight

This is the last show George Segal filmed before he went in for heart surgery.

 

Wendi McLendon-Covey (Beverly) said they all expected him back. She also said they would never replace him and they will address it next season.

 

"Pops" was an integral part of the show and a main cast member. He will definitely be missed by everyone - cast, crew, and everyone who watches the show. I agree he should never be replaced.  Smiley Sad

So sad!  He was such a wonderful entertainer and I miss him already.  Smiley Sad

 

ITA that not replacing him is definitely the right way to go.

@amyb - He died March 23 from complications during heart bypass surgery.  He had just turned 87 in February.

Too bad. Bypass surgeries are so common these days, you expect everyone to come through them...but, of course, anything can happen...especially at 87. RIP

This makes me so sad--they had a nice memoriam right after he passed away at the end of that show.  His character added so much to the show.

It was a fitting final episode for the character. He will definitely be missed.

Very nice memorial at the end, but I wish it were longer.

Loved him, loved his character and loved that he was best friends with Adam. 

I also loved him in the sitcom "Just Shoof Me" with David Spade.

 

RIP

I do think 87 is on the older side for a bypass. My Dad died at 87, needing heart surgery, but the docs refused to do it at his age.

This is such a terrific and hysterically funny show.

 

He was an integral part of it and will be sorely missed.

 

So long Pops!
