ABC announced today that The Wonder Years has been picked up for a full season. The order adds nine episodes to the comedy's first season, bringing its total to 22. Since its September premiere, the show has garnered solid viewership that sees it tied with 'The Conners' as the network's top comedy of the season among adults 18-49.

Inspired by the 1988 series of the same name, The Wonder Years is a coming-of-age story that takes a look back in time at a Black middle-class family in 1960s Montgomery, Alabama, from the point of view of an imaginative 12-year-old named Dean. Narrated by his grown-up self with the wisdom of his adult years, Dean reflects on some of the best years of his life with his family during a turbulent time.
