“The Wonder Years” is coming back to television with a new spin, according to a new report.
The original show ran from 1988 to 1993 and starred Fred Savage as Kevin Arnold as he grew up in the 1960s and ’70s and the changes that occurred during that time.

According to the outlet, the goal is for the reboot to debut during the 2021-22 television season and will follow a Black family living in Montgomery, Ala., during the ’60s.
The script will be written by Saladin K. Patterson, who worked on the likes of “The Big Bang Theory,” “Two and a Half Men” and “Fraiser.”
