ABC’s The Wonder Years was one of the most popular TV shows during the late 80s and early 90s as many teenagers found the show very relatable. The official cast for the show was revealed last month.
The new version of ABC’s coming-of-age comedy features Dave executive producer Saladin K. Patterson, Empire co-creator Lee Daniels, the star of the original series, Fred Savage, and 20th Century Fox TV. Fred Savage will be directing the pilot episode as well.
Now it seems the first trailer for The Wonder Years reboot has been officially released and it gives fans a first look of the cast and how they will be portraying their respective roles in the upcoming reboot.
The trailer made sure to give fans that feeling of nostalgia that they were eagerly anticipating as it featured tropes such as riding bikes, spending time with friends at school, staring at one’s crush and not to forget – baseball. The original theme of the show, Joe Cocker’s rendition of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help from My Friends” also set the perfect tone for the reboot.
It is also evident that while it will be similar to the original show, it will be its own thing as well as the story takes place during the times of segregation and more. We certainly wonder whether the reboot will successfully capture the essence of the original show while also shaping its own identity, whenever it will release.
