The 1980’s ABC sitcom, Head of the Class, follows a group of gifted high school students and their history teacher who helps guide them through this phase of their life and encourages them to see beyond their textbooks. The multi-camera sitcom was incredibly popular and ran for five seasons, ending in 1991. Now, 30 years later, Head of the Class is making a comeback.

Starring One Day at a Time‘s Isabella Gomez, the Head of the Class reboot will put a 2021 spin on the beloved show. The show will feature a whole new batch of high schoolers facing modern day challenges as they’re taken under the wing of a young teacher with some non-traditional methods who, much like her character's predecessor, wants her students to look at life beyond the grade book. All 10 episodes of this HBO Max original show will be available to stream starting Nov. 4.
