Series co-executive producers Tom Hertz and Vanessa McCarthy will take over for Doyle. Season 2 of the show will now run for 22 episodes compared to the 13-episode first season. The first season of the show launched at midseason, while Season 2 debuted this fall.
This marks the second showrunner change for the “Goldbergs” spinoff this year, with Doyle having taken over from Season 1 showrunner and series co-creator Marc Firek in August. Doyle, who remains under an overall deal at ABC Studios, previously created the ABC comedy “The Kids Are Alright.” That show aired for one season and was based on Doyle’s own childhood growing up in a large Irish-Catholic family.
Hertz previously worked with Doyle on “The Kids Are Alright.” He also created the CBS comedy “Rules of Engagement.” His other TV credits include “9JKL,” “Spin City,” and the reboot of “The Odd Couple.” McCarthy worked with Hertz on “Rules of Engagement” and also counts shows like “The Goldbergs,” “American Housewife,” and “Friends” among her other credits. \
“Schooled” centers on Lainey Lewis (AJ Michalka), who ends up taking a teaching job at her old high school, working alongside her former disciplinarians Principal Glascott (Tim Meadows) and Coach Mellor (Bryan Callen), as well as the young and cool CB (Brett Dier). The series is produced Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios. “The Goldbergs” creator Adam F. Goldberg and Doug Robinson serve as executive producers, with Hertz and McCarthy now elevated to executive producer roles in addition to serving as showrunners. Goldberg co-created the series with Firek. Goldberg recently departed his longtime home at Sony Pictures Television, which is the sole studio behind “The Goldbergs,” for a multi-year overall deal at ABC Studios.
