It is being reported that ABC has cancelled The Wonder Years after two seasons. The news comes a month after the reimagined coming-of-age comedy wrapped its shortened sophomore run, which at 10 episodes was less than half the length of its first season.

After ranking as one of the network's top comedies of the season in 2021, the half-hour series struggled in Season 2. It is currently ABC's lowest-rated show of the summer despite continued positive reviews from critics and viewers.

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.
