Disney has released a new trailer and poster for the upcoming reboot of “The Wonder Years”, which is 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 Dean. With the wisdom of his adult years, Dean’s hopeful and humorous recollections show how his family found their “wonder years” in a turbulent time.
ABC’s reimagined “The Wonder Years” stars Don Cheadle, narrating the series as adult Dean Williams, Elisha “EJ” Williams as Dean Williams, Dulé Hill as Bill Williams, Saycon Sengbloh as Lillian Williams, Laura Kariuki as Kim Williams, Julian Lerner as Brad Hitman, Amari O’Neil as Cory Long and Milan Ray as Keisa Clemmons.

In anticipation of the debut of ABC’s reimagining of “The Wonder Years,” premiering on ABC and Hulu on Wednesday 22nd September (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT), it was announced today that the network’s comedy lineup will pay homage to the original series with a larger-than-life takeover as fan-favorite original series cast members are set to appear throughout the evening on Wednesday 13th October . The night of nostalgia will kick off with a guest appearance by Dan Lauria (Jack Arnold) on “The Goldbergs,” followed by a nod to the iconic theme song originally covered by Joe Cocker in the all-new “The Wonder Years.” Later that evening, Fred Savage (Kevin Arnold) will guest star on “The Conners,” and the night will close with an appearance by Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper) on “Home Economics.”
This series will also be released internationally on Disney+as a Star Original, though no release date has yet been confirmed.
