The original Wonder Years TV show had a successful run three decades ago on the same network. How will this new version perform in the ratings for ABC? Will The Wonder Years be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. Status Update Below.
A coming-of-age comedy series, The Wonder Years TV show was inspired by the original 1988 series. This incarnation stars Don Cheadle, Elisha “EJ” Williams, Dule Hill, Saycon Sengbloh, Laura Kariuki, Julian Lerner, Amari O’Neil, and Milan Ray. Set in the late 1960s, the series takes a nostalgic look at the Williams family — Black middle-class residents of Montgomery, Alabama — through the point of view of imaginative 12-year-old son Dean (Williams). The story is narrated by Dean as an adult (Cheadle). His hopeful and humorous recollections of his past spotlight the ups and downs of growing up in that time and place, as well as the friendship, laughter, and lessons Dean encountered along the way.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page or view it here.
Note: These are the final national ratings, including all live+same day viewing and DVR playback (through 3:00 AM). Early fast affiliate ratings (estimates) are indicated with an “*”. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
What do you think? Do you like the The Wonder Years TV series on ABC? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
5/13/22 update: The Wonder Years has been renewed.
How in the hell did this get renewed? Just pure crap
The best sitcom ever it should not be canceled
There was no new episode of The Wonder Years on May 4th, it was a rerun.
You are correct. Thanks.
Nothing like the original “Wonder Years” Loved it..Sorry this new one dies not compare to the original..Tried watching it but not good at all..
We liked the original and followed it faithfully. Just discovered the new show and enjoy it just as much or more. Good to get the black prospective on life. Please keep it comming.
These comments are sad. The show is nothing like original show. They just share the same name. As a person of color who grew up around this time I can relate to this show. Whereas as the original show I could not relate to even though I did like it.
The show doesn’t cut it for me
I think the show sucks! Nothing near as good as the original. Why do you people always try to re make shows? It never is any good. Cancel it now!
I think is is a great show i love it
Not so wonderful.
I can’t agree more! I’ve been watching this show and now I know how awful the ratings are!
