The Goldberg family get along with new people quite easily. In the last season, The Goldbergs introduced Kelli Berglund as Ren. She appeared only in the five episodes.

That is inspired by the showrunner’s videotaped events, captured with the help of his grandfather Albert “Pops” Solomon (George Segal).

Speaking on Kelli’s replacement, the news came up that Kelli was dropping the sitcom as she has some other major commitments to work on.

Kelli also cast in Starz’s Heels, the wrestling drama. There she is cast opposite Stephen Amell and will play Crystal’s character.
