The Wonder Years is coming back in a rebooted form, set in the same era but focussing on a completely different family.

Original series star Fred Savage is involved in a directing and production capacity – we’ll take bets now on him making a cameo – and Dulé Hill of The West Wing and Psych fame is set to star as Bill Williams, a music professor by day, and a funk muso by night.

Joining Hill will be Elisha Williams, Saycon Sengbloh and Laura Kariuki.

The show is set to centre on the black, middle class Williams family, and their particular Wonder Years.
