‘The Wonder Years’ is getting a reboot on ABC
ABC is hoping to premiere the reboot during the 2021-2022 television season. Of course, the coronavirus pandemic will play a role as many shows are still not able to film. The original series focused on a middle-class family in the ’60s. The reboot will focus on a Black middle-class family in the ’60s, in Montgomery, Alabama.
ABC has been working hard to have shows that showcase all different types of families. For example, the shows Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat were newer series on ABC that did very well. ABC has not yet revealed the potential cast of the reboot.
