Years later, it’s still just as wonderful. The cast of The Wonder Years got together on Monday, Oct. 20, staging a reunion for the ages on Good Morning America.
More than two decades after the final episode of the beloved 1960s-set sitcom aired, the show’s central trio sat down with GMA‘s Robin Roberts to reminisce about their time playing childhood friends.
Promoting the release of a new series DVD set, Danica McKellar, Fred Savage, and Josh Saviano reunited, chatting about their roles of Winnie Cooper, Kevin Arnold, and Paul Joshua Pfeiffer, respectively, in the six seasons of The Wonder Years on ABC.
“I think the way that families have been portrayed on TV has evolved as we have,” Savage, now 38, reflected to Roberts. “Ours was a very kind of nuclear, traditional family, but as families have changed, and they look different, they come together in different ways, I love that TV’s reflected that. No matter how families change, there’s still things that all families go through. Regardless of what your family looks like or how it’s been put together, I think you can find stuff to relate to in the show. Some things stay the same.”
McKellar, now 39, dished on her casting in The Wonder Years, and also touched on life after the show. She got engaged this past summer to boyfriend Scott Sveslosky, and competed on Dancing With the Stars earlier this year, after receiving a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from UCLA and releasing four nonfiction books about math.
McKellar’s on-screen love interest and series protagonist Savage has been similarly busy. The former child star has taken a seat in the director’s chair, directing multiple episodes of hit shows including Modern Family, 2 Broke Girls, and Happy Endings.
Saviano, who brought the lovable nerd Paul to the small screen, took a slightly different path, exiting show business to get a law degree and is now a practicing attorney in New York. He made a long-awaited return to television earlier this month, when he appeared on an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, appropriately playing a lawyer.
