AJ Michalka will not be returning as a season regular on The Golbergs for Season 5.
At the close of the Season 4 finale, Lainey told her beau that she was leaving early for college in Savannah, Georgia. But a long-distance romance is not in the cards for the blonde and Barry, who is still in high school back home.
It seems though that Michalka will still be appearing in the show on a lesser basis.
The Goldbergs returns for Season 5 on Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 8/7c on ABC.
