Hayley Orrantia is like totally staying in the 80s…
ABC has renewed the 20-year-old part-Mexican American actress and singer-songwriter’s comedy series The Goldbergs for a second season.
Orrantia’s series was first of ABC’s current comedies to get an official pickup for next season.
The comedy, from Sony Pictures Television, performed well in its Tuesday 9:00 pm time slot.
The Goldbergs is set in the late 1980s and follows the Goldberg family. The series stars Jeff Garlin as husband Murray, Wendi McLendon-Coveyas wife Beverly, and their three children, including Orrantia’s character Erica. Adam, the youngest, documents their lives with his video camera.
The series is based on creator Adam F. Goldberg‘s childhood in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, during which he actually videotaped events, many of which are re-enacted throughout the program.
Orrantia rose to acclaim as a member of Lakoda Rayne, an all-girl group that made it to the Top 9 on the first season on The X Factor in the U.S.
