Hulu subscribers, get ready to get your Goldberg on.

Sony Pictures TV has struck a deal with Hulu to offer all previous seasons of the popular ABC sitcom The Goldbergs through the streaming TV service’s paid tiers, including the $8 per month option, and the $12 per month commercial-free tier.

If you’ve already been enjoying the show through Hulu’s free, ad-supported platform, which offers the most recent five episodes, no worries as this will continue. But now, paid subscribers will also be able to binge to their delight through the full gamut of episodes that comprise the entire first two seasons.

The announcement comes on the heels of the season 3 premiere, which aired on ABC last night. It seems like Hulu is making a play to cover every decade, as it follows several new licensing deals for the service, including the recent deal to offer all episodes of ‘90s sitcom Seinfeld.

At the heart of the Goldberg family is Adam (played by Sean Giambrone), the 11-year-old son who films his family’s daily doings, of course with a cumbersome camcorder. Hayley Orrantia plays his sister, Erica Goldberg, and Troy Gentile the older brother Barry. In the style of The Wonder Years, an adult Adam (voiced by Patton Oswalt) narrates the episodes.

But it’s arguably the adults in the family that make the show so downright hilarious, particularly the overprotective matriarch Beverly Goldberg, played by Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bob’s Burgers, Reno 911). There’s also the family’s apathetic, but lovable dad, played by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Jeff Garlin, and the wacky Goldberg grandpa, played by veteran comedian George Segal.

The show was indeed created by a real-life Goldberg – Adam – who has said the stories are loosely based on his actual upbringing, with him, of course, as the fictional Adam. He executive produces as well, alongside Doug Robinson, Seth Gordon, Alex Barnow, and Marc Firek.
