‘The Wonder Years’ Is Getting a Reboot on ABC. The hit late 80’s and early 90’s television series, The Wonder Years is getting a reboot on ABC. Not much is known about the series, but the shows longline states: “How a black middle class family in Montgomery, Alabama in the turbulent late 1960’s, the same era as the original series, made sure it was The Wonder Years for them too.”
The series will be based in the same time period as the original series, but will offer insight into the lives of another family from a different ethnic background as the original cast, while dealing with the height on of the civil rights movement in the 60’s and early 70’s. It is currently unknown if the series will be narrated by an older version of the main character as it was in the original show.
The original “The Wonder Years” series ran on ABC between 1988-1993 and tracked life in the turbulent late 1960’s and early 1970’s through the eyes of the increasingly less innocent Kevin Arnold. Narrated by an adult Kevin, the show followed him as he faces first love and the obstacles of life with best friend Paul.
The production team currently consists of Fred Savage acting as director and executive producer along side Marc Velez, with Saladin Patterson (Dave) as lead writer, Lee Daniels is acting as the production company member, and original series co-creator Neal Marlens will return to consult on the reboot.
No formal casting decisions have been made at this time and it is unknown when the series will premiere on ABC, but be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things ABC!
