On The Goldbergs episode “The Goldbergs: 1990-Something,” John Glascott (Tim Meadows) is Head of School at William Penn Academy in the 1990s. When the former teacher struggles to lead a faculty of teachers, he brings in his tough-as-nails sister Lucy Somers to help. With Lucy are her two teenage daughters, Felicia (Rachel Crow) and Gigi (Summer Parker). Beverly Goldberg’s (Wendi McLendon-Covey) kids have already graduated but she can’t help but to stop by the school and help fix things.
Lucy Somers is portrayed by Nia Long. She’s known for her roles on NCIS: Los Angeles (Asst. Dir. Shay Mosley), Empire (Giuliana), Dear White People (Neika Hobbs), Hand of God (Izzy0) Uncle Buck (Alexis), House of Lies (Tamara), Third Watch (Sasha), and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (Will’s girlfriend Lisa, see below), among others. Long is also well recognized for her roles in the films Big Momma’s House (Sherry), The Best Man (Jordan), Friday (Debbie), and Boyz n the Hood (Brandi). The Goldbergs airs Wednesdays at 8pm on ABC, right before American Housewife.
