Schooled 2019, As a spinoff of ABC’s long-running ’80s comedy “The Goldbergs,” “Schooled” had a surprisingly rough time getting greenlit by the network. Persistence eventually paid off, but unfortunately, the result isn’t worth the wait. The mildly charming but confusing show that airs Wednesday is a clear result of its long and messy path to the airwaves.
“Schooled” began as the glint in co-creators Adam F. Goldberg and Marc Firek’s eyes in November 2016 when they developed the idea for the spinoff, which eventually was ordered to pilot. ABC officially passed on the pilot in May 2017, but after much urging by Goldberg.
the network agreed to air it as a backdoor pilot in January 2018, midway through Season 5 as a special episode of “The Goldbergs.” The episode performed on par with the rest of the season. Set in the 1990s, that version of “Schooled” stars Tim Meadows.
reprising his role as William Penn Academy school principal John Glascott alongside Bryan Callen who returns as Coach Rick Mellor. Nia Long plays Glascott’s sister, the no-nonsense Lucy, who comes to work for him as her two teenage daughters – including “X Factor” breakout contestant Rachel Crow – adjust to the new school.
Schooled 2019 Production:-
In November 2016, it was first reported that ABC was developing a spin-off that would center around recurring character Rick Mellor, played by Bryan Callen. On January 10, 2017, Wendi McClendon-Covey’s character was reported as appearing in the script in a guest appearance. The script was ordered to pilot on February 2, 2017.
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. On May 17, 2017, ABC passed on the spin-off, despite it reportedly testing very well – going as far to test better than the pilot of the original series. At the same time, Adam F. Goldberg revealed the title of the failed spin-off – “Schooled”.
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.

Schooled 2019 Redevelopment:-
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. Three months later, on April 16, 2018. it was announced that ABC had officially picked up the spin-off. Schooled, for a 13-episode season slated to air in 2019.
