The Goldbergs are about to have the time of their lives.
The ABC comedy will continue to pay tribute to ’80s classics with a Dirty Dancing-themed episode in Season 3, TVLine has learned.
The film “is a huge 80’s cultural touchstone — the music, the memorable lines, and of course, Swayze,” creator Adam F. Goldberg said in a statement. “No one loved it more than my mom. I’ll always remember how she dragged me to see it in the theaters several times and then bought it on video. I knew this was our big movie to explore this season when all of the writers on the show also had their very own Dirty Dancing memories from years ago. It really is a gem of the 80s and it’s so exciting to bring it to life with my amazing cast.”
Interestingly, ABC also has a three-hour Dirty Dancing remake movie, starring Abigail Breslin and Debra Messing, in the works.
The Goldbergs previously aired homages to The Goonies, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Risky Business.
