For those of you fans of The Goldbergs who were hoping to one day see a Sixteen Candles-themed episode, it looks like you will see that happen in Season 6!
The Goldbergs is one of those shows that just brings me so much nostalgic joy and happiness. I can relate to it so well because it reminds me a lot of what it was like for me growing up.
I'm also a big fan of John Hughes' and it's awesome to see the series pay tribute to another one of his classic films. The show previously had Weird Science and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off themed episodes.
Sixteen Candles follows Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald) as she has a terrible birthday experience when everyone forgets that it's her birthday. This will happen to Adam Goldberg in the episode. Actor Sean Giambrone talked about the episode with /Film saying:
"The situation that happens can be for either gender. It is a girl in the movie, but it can happen to the boy."
The thing is, can you imagine Beverly Goldberg ever forgetting one of her kids' birthdays? I can't, but apparently, it happens next season. Hayley Orrantia went on to say there are going to be a lot of details in the show:
"There’s so many little details throughout the show where they tie it in as Adam does. There’s definitely going to be the 16th birthday party that goes awry. I’m excited to have the audience see all those little things and the little details that people may have overlooked in the movie that we really touch on in the episode."
Sounds like this episode is going to be a lot of fun! I can't wait to see it! The Goldbergs returns September 26, 2018 on ABC.
