Congratulations AJ Michalka on getting a role in the spin-off of the ABC‘s series “The Goldbergs“. We are really happy for her and cannot wait to see our favorite Lainey Lewis in the upcoming spin-off. Amanda already confirmed this information by leaving a tweet on Aly & AJ‘s Twitter.

AJ Michalka will reprise her role as Lainey from the flagship and join the cast of the offshoot, which has received a 13-episode order following a unique path to the screen.
ABC is expanding the world of The Goldbergs.
The Disney-owned network has handed out a 13-episode series order for the 1990s-set spinoff formerly known as Schooled. Additionally, former Goldbergs series regular AJ Michalka, who plays Barry‘s (Troy Gentile) ex-girlfriend, Lainey, has joined the cast of the untitled project, which has been retooled after original star Nia Long was no longer available. (Long is a series regular on CBS‘ NCIS: L.A.) The series will air during the 2018-19 broadcast season and follow the teachers of William Penn Academy — led by Tim Meadows‘ Principal Glascott, Bryan Callen‘s Coach Mellor and Michalka‘s Lainey Lewis — who, despite their eccentricities and crazy personal lives, are heroes to their students.
