“The Kids Are Alright” creator Tim Doyle will take over as showrunner on ABC’s “The Goldbergs” spinoff “Schooled,” TheWrap has confirmed.

Doyle, whose previous ABC series was canceled after one season back in May, will take over the Sony Pictures Television-ABC Studios co-production for its second season this fall. He steps in for series co-creator Marc Firek, who is exiting the comedy to focus on other projects.

“Schooled” is set to return for its second season on Wednesday, Sept. 25 following the Season 7 return of “The Goldbergs.”

Set in the 1990s, the comedy centers on the faculty of the fictional William Penn Academy that was attended by the kids from the “The Goldbergs” and where now AJ Michalka’s Lainey now teaches.

Tim Meadows, Bryan Callen and Brett Dier also star. Firek co-created the series with Adam F. Goldberg and executive produces alongside Doug Robinson.
