7. The Wunder Years (Based on The Wonder Years)

ABC / The Black-Marlens Company / Via

Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) and Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) are married and living in Germany. They raise their two children in the early 1990s as the Soviet Union is collapsing around them.

Premiering in 2018, Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), George (Jason Alexander) and Kramer (Michael Richards) return to television twenty years after the series finale. The show is by-and-large the same as the original series except long-time Seinfeld fans will hate it before it even makes it to television and hate-watch it throughout it's 5 season run.

10. The Fresh Princess of Bryn Mawr (Based on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air)

NBC / The Stuffed Dog Company / Via
