'The Wonder Years' reboot: Air time, how to live stream, cast, plot and all you need to about ABC show
It's either reunions or reboots these days. After HBO Max announced 'Friends: The Reunion', ABC released the trailer of 'The Wonder Years', a reboot of the original series by the same name. It's a trip to the sixties, one that revolves around a Black family settled in Alabama.
The first look may be a tad short but in those few seconds, you are transported to a different era that too effortlessly. There are very few shows that are able to leave such a lasting impact, much less those that are rebooted.
'The Wonder Years' is scheduled to air every Wednesday at 8/7c, starting this fall.
