It’s been 25 years since The Wonder Years debuted on ABC and we met the Arnold family. The groundbreaking series chronicled life in the suburbs during the tumultuous late ’60s/early ’70s from the point of view of introspective 11-year-old Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage). Well, he started as a pre-teen, but the fun of the show was watching him navigate the painful/hilarious/thrilling junior high and high school years, all of which he spent hopelessly in love with his neighbor, Winnie Cooper (Danica McKeller).
The show ran from 1988 to 1993 and launched the acting careers of the the main cast, although afterwards some chose different paths in the entertainment biz while others left it completely. See where they are now, and have a look back at the guest stars we’d eventually get to know a lot better on shows like Friends and Melrose Place!
