Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the series of the same name, THE WONDER YEARS is a coming-of-age story set in the late 1960s that takes a nostalgic look at a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama, through the point of view of imaginative 12-year-old Dean. With the wisdom of his adult years, Dean's hopeful and humorous recollections show how his family found their "wonder years" in a turbulent time. Original series star Fred Savage is executive producer and he directed the pilot of the new series. After a one-month break, THE WONDER YEARS returned with new episodes on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 8:30pm ET/PT on ABC. In the winter premiere, "Lads and Ladies and Us," Bill and Lillian decide to join high society club Lads & Ladies as a way to introduce Kim and Dean to positive influences in the community. Bill, Kim and Dean fit right in, but things take a turn when Lillian is treated differently for being a working mom.

Season 2 of THE WONDER YEARS debuted with back-to-back new episodes on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 from 9-10pm ET/PT on ABC. In the season opener, "One Small Step" (9pm), it's the summer of 1969, and Dean and Bill are experiencing new walks of life in New York City where Dean has tagged along for Bill's career-making songwriting gig. Back in Montgomery, Lilian's infamous sister, Jackie, pays a memorable visit. Then, in the night's second episode, "Forbidden Fruit" (9:30pm), torn between his secret relationship with Keisa and his friendship with Broderick, Dean turns to Jackie for advice. Meanwhile, after her latest run-in with the law, Jackie decides to turn over a new leaf.
On Wednesday, August 16, 2023 from 9-10pm ET/PT, ABC premiered back-to-back episodes to close out THE WONDER YEARS' second season:

"Happy Birthday, Clisby" (9pm): The Williams gather to celebrate Clisby's 75th birthday -- including Bill's brother Melvin and his daughter Cassie. While Bill and Melvin try to one-up each other for Clisby's approval, Cassie shares big news with Lillian and Kim. Guest starring Aubriana Davis, Richard Gant, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, and Patti LaBelle.

"The Happiest Place on Earth" (9:30pm): When the Williams family decides to go on a family vacation, Kim suggests a road trip to Austin College and Dean proposes a stop at Disneyland. After meeting up with his old bandmates, Bill reflects on his life choices.
