Four words: we LOVE The Goldbergs! Well… who doesn’t?! The Goldbergs is a perfect example of a pure masterpiece of a show that has every quality for success. The brilliant show has an all-star, immensely talented cast, a stupendous storyline based on true moments from genius Adam F. Goldberg’s life, amazing 80’s memories that bring back all the nostalgia and even some awesome music. Seriously, what more could you ask for in a show?!
Well, some more fun continues with an exciting special, The Goldbergs: 1990-SOMETHING airing on January 24th at 8:00 PM on ABC.
According to the press release, “This Goldbergs-inspired special event 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 of teachers 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 as new students. Lucy is desperate to ensure they avoid the social pitfalls of high school and finds herself torn between Glascott’s nurturing and communicative approach to parenting and Coach Mellor’s (Bryan Callen) tough-guy belief that physical competition brings out the best in students. Even Beverly Goldberg comes to visit the school’s staff despite all her kids having already graduated and can’t help but meddle one last time.”
This outstanding special is a 90’s spin-off of The Goldbergs from last year’s pilot season with the story written by the one and only Adam F. Goldberg and Marc Firek.
The special stars Tim Meadows as John Glascott, Bryan Callen as Coach Rick Mellor, Nia Long as Lucy Somers, Rachel Crow as Felicia and Summer Parker as Gigi. In addition, Wendi McLendon-Covey, who plays the iconic role of Beverly Goldberg, will guest-star in the special to add her two cents in.
The Goldbergs: 1990 – SOMETHING is bound to be filled with tons of wonderful, heart-felt moments and hilarious memories. Be sure to mark your calendars and tune in to the premiere of the special on January 24th at 8:00 PM on ABC!
