ABC has cancelled Schooled after its second season. The network announced its pickups for 2020-2021 today, and while parent show The Goldbergs made the cut, Schooled did not. The sad news comes a week after the comedy wrapped its sophomore run.

The half-hour sitcom began as a pilot that originally aired as a regular episode of The Goldbergs back in January 2018. At the time, the network had passed on the show, which was developed as a 90s-set spin-off. Sometime after that they had a change of heart, and Schooled was added to their mid-season schedule. While the show was a decent performer, it experienced numerous showrunner changes over the course of its run.

Set in 1990-something, Schooled follows the faculty at William Penn Academy – Principal Glascott, Coach Mellor, new music teacher and graduate Lainey Lewis, and enthusiastic super-teacher Charlie Brown. They may be nothing alike, both at school and in their personal lives, but this group of teachers are all great mentors to their students in their own unique ways.
