About The Wonder Years
The original series centers on a life of a middle-class family of American suburban through the eyes of a young boy his age 12-17. Each season of the show took place exactly 20 years before the current year.
With the main focus on Kevin Arnold, the other members of his family include Jack Arnold and Norma Arnold who are his father and mother respectively. In addition to that, he has a brother and a sister. The show depicts the life of this middle-class family and tells how young Kevin shapes himself during these years.
The reboot series inspired by this focuses on a middle-class black family in the 1960s and will likely follow the same format as the original show.
