Good things come to those who wait. After two seasons of stealing every scene in which she’s been present, Aj Michalka has been promoted to a series regular on The Goldbergs ahead of the show’s third season. Michalka, who plays Erica’s best friend and Barry’s girlfriend, Lainey Lewis, has been recurring on the show since Season 1, and her promotion comes after a largely increased focus on the supporting cast in the semi-autobiographical show from the real Adam Goldberg. The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the casting news. The third season of The Goldbergs will feature Aj Michalka’s first time as a regular on television.
