Adam F. Goldberg shared some exciting details about the upcoming Goldbergs spinoff pilot. The new series is about to air on ABC and the fans of the original 90’s show should expect more of the new series.
While the story is still set at the William Penn Charter School, the spinoff will introduce new characters apart from the existing ones. The creator stated that the setting would be 10 years after the original one, where Adam (Sean Giambrone) will have graduated.
What to expect from the pilot
Speaking to Deadline, Goldberg added some interesting details about how the show might be. The official title for the Goldbergs spinoff is still under wraps, though.
“The side characters have become really strong, and I don’t want to rob my show of all the great characters, so we’re slowly unveiling new characters,” he said. “The show is told from the point of the view of the teachers, and one of the teachers has kids in the school,” the creator added.
Notably, his wife’s parents are the main inspiration for the pilot episode. Also, writer Mark Firek got the idea of the script from his sister and father.
Goldberg added that real teachers inspire the show’s characters as well. The creator also said that they want to depict the original set to the Goldbergs spinoff.
“For me, having crazy parents, my teachers were the sane people who raised me, and they liked being there. They don’t make a ton of money, but they’re heroes. And I wanted to wish a positive show where it’s not having teachers being down in the teacher’s lounge smoking cigarettes,” he added.
Although casting is yet to happen, the pilot script already included Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey). Unfortunately, Jeff Garlin’s Murray is yet to be on the pilot script.
On the other hand, Philly noted that should the pilot be successful, it would be Goldberg’s third show on ABC. Meanwhile, another show Imaginary Mary will premiere on March 29.
It appears that the fans will get to see an 80’s set up to the Goldbergs spinoff. Stay tuned for more news.
