Those Wonderful Years: A Reboot Could Be Coming Soon!


Among the three new series pilots that ABC will produce, one is a reboot of the legendary eighties series.

“Those wonderful years” conquered the audience for 6 seasons and 115 episodes, from 1988 to 1993. Set, however, in the 60s and 70s, the series left its mark on an entire generation. Now it could do it again because, according to Variety, a reboot of it is among those chosen for the ABC pilot season this 2021.

ABC has chosen three comedy projects to produce its pilot, that is, a first episode with which to assess whether to produce an entire season. In addition to the reboot of ‘The Wonder Years’, there is also another reboot of ‘Maggie’ and an original project Regina Hicks.

It seems that the reboot of “Those Wonderful Years” could show a black family from Montgomery, Alabama, also during the late 1960s. The series would have screenwriter Saladin Patterson and Lee Daniels and Marc Velez serving as executive producers. The pilot would be directed by none other than the protagonist of the original series, Fred Savage, who would also serve as executive producer. Neal Marlens, creator of the series, would act in the reboot only as a consultant.

The three comedies also compete with two dramas, ‘Queens’ and ‘Epic’. In addition, last November it was announced that ABC had given the green light to a comedy project starring Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer, from the co-creator of ‘Modern Family’, Chris Lloyd. Therefore, the reboot of ‘Those wonderful years’ still has several tests left to come true.
