Fans were curious to see how The Goldbergs spin-off, Schooled, would turn out. It’s now in its second season and is bringing in new characters. The show is similar in format to its predecessor, but instead, it takes place in 1990-something.

Originally, Kali Hawk was set to play the new high school biology teacher, Wilma Howell, but after the second season aired it was clear that there was a casting change to Haneefah Wood. Wood is best known for parts on Nurse Jackie, Baskets, and Grease Live!.
