TV Trailer: ABC ‘The Wonder Years’ Reboot [Executive Produced by Lee Daniels & Fred Savage]

Nearly 30 years after its inaugural six season run ended, ‘The Wonder Years’ is set to return to television courtesy of director/producer Lee Daniels (as we reported here) and Fred Savage (who played the lead in its original incarnation).

Rebooted with an all-African American cast, the critically acclaimed series – described as a “coming-of-age story set in the late 1960s that takes a nostalgic look at a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama, through the point-of-view of imaginative 12-year-old” – calls on Dulé Hill, Laura Kariuki, Elisha “EJ” Williams, and Saycon Sengbloh to portray its main family.

What’s more, award-winning actor Don Cheadle serves as the show’s narrator.

Get your first look at the forthcoming action inside.

As of time reported, no official release date is tied to ‘The Wonder Years’ reboot.

    Imagine if The Cosby Show was rebooted with an all-white cast? People often complain about ‘White-washing’ but I don’t see how this is any different.

      There are PLENTY of white family shows tho, that’s the BIG difference 🤣💯 The Cosby Show with a white family is every other show on television in the 80’s lol….this is another one of my favorites, the white Cosby Show lol…..and they had flavor too 😂🤳🏽

        No lies told but why complain about White washing only to turn around & copy the same concept?

        It’s like me complaining about cultural appropriation while wearing Native American attire for a costume party.

        Also the Cosby Show created an Original cast of characters. Not the same thing.

        Cultural appropriation and remaking a fictional TV show are two TOTALLY different things 🤔

        @Your Name they are stealing from white cult cultural classics, so it is the same thing you fool. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

        You clearly don’t know what cultural appropriation is. Enlighten yourself before respond next time dimwit.

      Because when you white wash something you are taking from an already small pool. The amount of roles out there for whites are many the same cannot he said of roles for other races in the US. There is no damage in the reverse as whites still have many other opportunities already on screen and in development.

        @Bam that is a load of BS and you know it. Maybe black people on tv shows don’t get viewers…

    Don’t like Don Cheadle as the narrator. This show was part of my childhood.
