The Wonder Years Disappointment: Fred Savage Says ‘There Will Never Be A Reunion’

Although fans of The Wonder Years got a glimpse of the cast last year during the release of the show to DVD, the star of the show, Fred Savage, confirms that there will never be a reunion.

People reports that Savage, 38, recently opened up on the issue of creating a reunion of the famous show that aired from 1988 to 1993. While his younger brother, Ben Savage, 34, is currently enjoying success on Disney’s Boy Meets World spin-off show, Girl Meets World, Fred says that will never happen with Wonder Years.

“Zero. Never. The show was about a time in your life. The show was about this finite moment in your life that has a beginning and an end, and I think that’s what makes people long for that time in your life.”

Girl Meets World reunites a lot of the cast members from Boy Meets World, including Ben, Rider Strong, and Danielle Fishel. The show, which premiered on June 27, 2014, is now in its second season, and has received mostly positive reviews from critics.

However, while Boy Meets World and its spin-off show depicts the main characters all grown up and into their adult careers, Fred feels that the concept wouldn’t work well with The Wonder Years.

Girl Meets World also details the lives of today’s younger generation. It would be difficult, according to Fred, to do something similar with The Wonder Years.

“You can’t really go back to it. You can’t all be 12 again, and that’s why that time in our life is so special and why all the memories still stay with us and warm us and haunt us and all those things – because we can’t go back to it.”

Meanwhile, Fred recently embarked on a new project. He stars in FOX’s upcoming series, The Grinder, along with co-stars Rob Lowe, William Devane, and Mary Elizabeth Ellis.

The Grinder marks Fred’s first role in a television series in nearly a decade. His previous projects included working as a producer and director on numerous televisions shows.

Diehard fans can still enjoy all 115 episodes of the award-winning show. Each season is available on The Wonder Years: The Complete Series Set, which includes adorable memorabilia such as a small replica of Kevin Arnold’s locker, bumper stickers, and the show’s “yearbook.” For those who just want to watch the show without the extra bells and whistles, all episodes are currently available on Netflix.
