Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper together again! The cast of The Wonder Years reunited this week to record for the release of “The Wonder Years: The Complete Series” DVD collection—and the result was epic!
Fred Savage (Kevin), Danica McKellar (Winnie), Jason Harvey (Wayne Arnold), Josh Saviano (Paul Pfeiffer), Olivia D’Abo (Karen Arnold), Dan Lauria (Jack Arnold), and Alley Mills (Norma Arnold) all joined together for sit-down interviews, a hilarious selfie and professional cast photos for the special event. In one nostalgic moment, the group sat down in an exact replica of the kitchen used in the late ’80s and early ’90s sitcom.
“FIRST LOOK WHOLE CAST!” Harvey, who played Kevin’s pesky older brother, tweeted. Savage added: “#TheWonderYearsDVD cast reunion…!! @thefredsavage @joshsaviano @jasonhervey @oliviadabo #dvdextras.” In the actor’s snapshot, the actors, minus Lauria, are seated in black director’s chairs in front of posters of themselves in character from the beloved ABC series.
Saving the best for last, Savage also posted a heartwarming selfie of the cast, as he stood next to his former onscreen love. McKellar comes fresh off her Dancing With the Stars season 18 stint, where she finished in fifth place. Savage, for his part, has mainly stayed behind the camera since playing Kevin, directing shows like 2 Broke Girls, Happy Endings, and Modern Family. (His younger brother, actor Ben Savage, recently reunited with his own Boy Meets World cast for its Disney sequel, Girl Meets World.)
The Wonder Years aired from 1988 to 1993 and racked up several awards, including multiple Emmys, a Golden Globe, and a Peabody during its heyday. Last February, it was announced that a DVD box set of the critically-acclaimed show was finally in the works.
“The Wonder Years has long been the most requested TV show yet to be released on DVD, and we’re thrilled to have the incredible opportunity to bring this iconic show to its many fans,” StarVista Entertainment’s senior VP Jeffrey Peisch said in a statement at the time (via The Wrap). “As we’ve done with many other classic TV shows, the series will be treated with the care and attention it fully deserves after all these years, with deluxe packaging, robust extras and a lot more. We’re really big fans of the series, too.”
