New York: Those growing up in the late 80s and early 90s are all set to revisit their memories as the superhit teen show Wonder Years Reboot will be premiered at ABCs on Wednesday, albeit with an all-Black cast.
The debut episode of the superhit teen show will deal with the assassination of Martin Luther King.
The show will still share the story of a young boy coming of age in America in the 1960s, while his adult self narrates the story. Only this time around, it will be told through the lens of a Black boy, and award-winning actor Don Cheadle will serve as the narrator.
The cast includes actor Dule Hill as Dean’s father Bill Williams, Laura Kariuki and Saycon Sengbloh as Kim and Lillian Williams, and Milan Ray who plays Keisha, the new-age version of “Kevin Arnold’s” crush Winnie.
Fred Savage said he was excited for viewers to take in a rebooted age-old classic while telling a familiar story in an entirely new way.
The Wonder Years reboot will debut on ABC Wednesday on Wednesday.
