Dier will play C.B., a young and energetic teacher based on series creator Adam F. Goldberg's favorite teacher. The character becomes both a friend and a rival to Lainey.

"So excited to announce this!" Dier tweeted Wednesday. "Also so stoked to be apart of this show! This character is a freaking blast!!"

The Goldbergs, also created by Goldberg, debuted on ABC in 2013 and premiered its sixth season in September. ABC gave Schooled a series order in April.
