ABC announced today that The Wonder Years has been renewed for Season 2. The good news comes ahead of next week's freshman finale, which will cap a successful debut outing for the reimagined coming-of-age comedy.

The half-hour series premiered last September with a solid start, garnering a positive critical reception and ranking as one of the network's top comedies of the season among adults 18-49. It was quickly picked up for a full season of 22 episodes.

Inspired by the 1988 series of the same name, The Wonder Years 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.

Look for Season 2 of The Wonder Years this fall as part of the 2022-2023 season.
