A 1990s-set spin-off of "The Goldbergs" was planned, but ultimately not ordered to series. The pilot will air as an episode of "The Goldbergs'" fifth season.
The episode picks up where the Goldberg family leaves off at William Penn Academy in the 1990s as former teacher and now Head of School John Glascott (Tim Meadows) leads a faculty with wildly different views on how to mentor students and recruits his tough-as-nails-sister Lucy (Nia Long) to join his staff and enroll her teenage daughters Felicia and Gigi (Rachel Crow, Summer Parker) as new students.
Lucy is desperate to ensure they avoid the social pitfalls of high school and finds herself torn between Glascottís nurturing and communicative approach to parenting and Coach Mellorís (Bryan Callen) tough-guy belief that physical competition brings out the best in students.
Even Beverly Goldberg (Wendi McLendon-Covey) comes to visit the schoolís staff despite all her kids already having graduated. But she canít help but meddle one last time.
