[ # ] Would Fred Savage do a Wonder Years reunion?
July 14th, 2017 under 80s, Fred and Ben Savage, Revivals-Reboots

Back in 1988, we fell in love with the ’60s again thanks to The Wonder Years. Now that everyone is getting a revival or a reboot, Vanity Fair asked Fred Savage if he would one based in the ’90s?

He does not mind you pitching him ideas for the reunion, but he says “No, it’s not going to happen.” Then he explained why, “You know, I’ve always said that The Wonder Years, it’s not just the name of the show—it’s a time in your life, a very special, finite time in your life. And the way the show was written, it’s about looking back with some longing. I think we all look back at that time in our lives and long for it and idealize it. One of the reasons it takes on this kind of mythic, almost haunting quality in our lives is because it’s something you can’t go back to and can’t revisit. It only exists in our memories, in our shared experiences with people who went through it with us. That’s really what the show was all about. And I think that the idea of revisiting the show mirrors that. And I like that.”

I think they could recapture that feeling again. Let us get to know the Arnold family in their future and our past. Plus, if they could revive Dan Conner for the Roseanne revival, why can’t they do the same for The Wonder Years for their patriarch. Would you watch Kevin Arnold again?
