Schooled[1] is an upcoming American sitcom and a direct spin-off to The Goldbergs. It was ordered by ABC with Tim Meadows, Bryan Callen and AJ Michalka set to star in it. The concept aired as a backdoor pilot on a January 24, 2018 episode of The Goldbergs called "The Goldbergs: 1990-Something".[2] It is scheduled for a midseason debut in the 2018–19 television season.[3]

Cast and characters


Original concept

In November 2016, it was first reported that ABC was developing a spinoff that would center around recurring character Rick Mellor, played by Bryan Callen.[4] On January 10, 2017, Wendi McClendon-Covey's character was reported as appearing in the script in a guest appearance.[5] The script was ordered to pilot on February 2, 2017.[6]

On March 16, 2017, it was confirmed that Nia Long had been cast as the female lead in the role of Lucy Winston. At the same time it was confirmed that Tim Meadows would reprise his recurring role from The Goldbergs as Andre Glascott. Jay Chandrasekhar was also confirmed to direct.[7]

On May 17, 2017, ABC passed on the spin-off,[8] despite it reportedly testing very well - going as far to test better than the pilot of the original series.[9] At the same time, Adam F. Goldberg revealed the title of the failed spin-off - "Schooled".[10]

On January 8, 2018, it was announced that the pilot would air as a special episode of The Goldbergs on January 24, 2018, under the episode title The Goldbergs: 1990-Something. Along with Nia Long as Lucy Winston and Tim Meadows as teacher-turned-principal Andre Glascott (who is also revealed to be Lucy's brother), the pilot also starred Rachel Crow as Lucy's rebellious teenage daughter Felicia, and Summer Parker as Felicia's bubbly younger sister Gigi, with Octavia Spencer narrating as the present-day Felicia.

After the pilot aired, Goldberg had expressed hope that the airing would prompt discussions with ABC that could lead to the series being picked up for the 2018–19 TV season.[9]


Three months later, on April 16, 2018, it was announced that ABC had officially picked up the spinoff, Schooled, for a 13-episode season slated to air in 2019. It was also announced that AJ Michalka would reprise her role as Lainey Lewis from The Goldbergs in the new show, but Nia Long will not return to the spinoff due to being a regular cast member on the CBS drama series NCIS: Los Angeles.[11]
