The Goldbergs Spinoff

Goldbergs Spinoff Set in '90s Snags Formal Pilot Order at ABC

The ’90s are back — and we have the ’80s to thank.

ABC is moving forward with a ’90s-set spinoff of its ’80s-set hit The Goldbergs, with the network officially handing the project a pilot order. 

As previously reported, the offshoot will center on high school gym teacher Rick Mellor, a recurring character on The Goldbergs; Bryan Callen, who plays Mellor, is attached to star. The premise: Mellor and another high school teacher team up to act as father figures to the kids at their Philadelphia school.

Goldbergs EPs Adam F. Goldberg and Marc Firek penned the pilot script.

    No one wants this… ABC already has Fresh Off the Boat.

    This just reminds me of when Fox tried (and failed) to duplicate the success of That 70s Show with That 80s Show.

    • Brian says:

      That was just slapping a similar title on a new show to try to get viewers. This is an actual spin-off starring a character from the original show. Something that has been done successfully numerous times.

  3. Marie says:

    I worry that it may be too soon for this spin-off.

    Don’t know about the characters but a show in the 90s would be interesting. That decade pre 911 may have been one of high points in this nations history despite O.J.
