Farewell, Pops.

On Friday, April 2, ABC revealed that the final The Goldbergs episode starring George Segal, who passed away on March 23, will air April 7. Since 2013, Segal has played Albert "Pops" Solomon on the ABC sitcom, which also stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeff Garlin, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia and more.

In a new teaser below, the network noted, "It has been eight wonderful seasons with Pops. Join us for the final episode with the legendary George Segal. A special new Goldbergs."

According to Entertainment Weekly, Wednesday's new episode will feature a 45-second tribute by ABC and Sony Pictures Television. As E! News readers well know, Segal passed away last month. As his wife Sonia confirmed to Deadline, "The family is devastated to announce that this morning George Segal passed away due to complications from bypass surgery."

In addition to his Goldbergs role, Segal was best known for playing Jack Gallo on Just Shoot Me! and for his Oscar-nominated role in the film Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.

Following Segal's death, The Goldbergs creator Adam F. Goldberg—whose real-life family inspired the showshared a touching tribute. "Today we lost a legend," he expressed alongside heartwarming pictures of Segal as Pops. "It was a true honor being a small part of George Segal's amazing legacy. By pure fate, I ended up casting the perfect person to play Pops. Just like my grandfather, George was a kid at heart with a magical spark. I think these memories say it all..."

Giambrone, who plays Adam on The Goldbergs, also paid tribute to Segal on social media. "My heart is broken. I lost a dear friend," he wrote. "Working with George was an honor and some of the happiest moments of my life. What a sweet & wonderful man. He was my confidant & teacher. When he smiled it changed my day. I wish everyone could have met him. Prayers are with the family."

Be sure to say goodbye to Pops and Segal by tuning into Wednesday's all-new episode.

The Goldbergs airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
