About “The Wonder Years”

  • Set in the same time frame as the original, this reboot will follow a black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama in the late 1960s, and how they made sure it was “The Wonder Years” for themselves too.
  • The Wonder Years reboot is being written by Saladin Patterson (Dave) and directed by Fred Savage, who played Kevin Arnold in the original 1980s series.
  • Patterson and Savage are also executive producers alongside Lee Daniels (Empire) and Marc Velez, with the co-creator of the original series, Neal Marlens, onboard as a consultant.
  • The new series from 20th Television is planned to be a single-camera comedy.
