ABC is done with The Wonder Years. Having first premiered in 2021, The Wonder Years just finished its second season in August. The show, which served as a reboot of the 1988 show of the same name, told the story of Dean Williams (Elisha Williams) as he worked to survive as a middle-class Black teenager living in the 1960s in Montgomery, Alabama. The show was a hit for critics and even won an entertainment award at the Peabody Awards.
Despite becoming a critical success, the show will not be receiving another season. The Wrap reports that ABC has officially canceled The Wonder Years after season 2’s conclusion. While the show brought in multiple guest stars in an effort to boost ratings, it was not enough to keep the series alive. With just two seasons, the reboot falls short of the original show’s six-season run.
