Nostalgia. It doesn't get better than that - and that's probably why TV cast reunions are all the rage these days. You know that feeling when you see your favorite TV casts reassembled like 20 years later? Part of you is all, "Remember the good old days?" and then another part goes, "God, they look terrible," right? Ah... the beauty of TV show reunions.

At one point or another, every TV show cast is reunited (except Friends who will continue playing with their fans who want a reunion without ever actually doing one).  Whether it's to receive an award of some sort... for a magazine spread... or just to relive old times and have a meal, there's no better marketing ploy than getting the team back together one last time.

Sure, some of them have remained friends, but a lot of them have pursued their own careers (some not even in show business at all, like Paul Pfeiffer from The Wonder Years, who became a lawyer). Here's a list of some of the most memorable and nostalgia-filled television reunions from the past few years. Get ready to pass judgement!

Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper were the Ross and Rachel of Generation X.  Not only did this show strike a chord for it's heartfelt characters (and voice over of course), but the history embedded in each episode taught the viewers a little bit about an era in the world each week.  

(And Paul Pfeiffer was the ultimate best friend sidekick, up there with Buddy on Charles in Charge.)

Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, and Josh Saviano still hang out decades after The Wonder Years ended. In 2019, McKellar documented a lunch date with her former co-stars who she called "family" and reminised about growing up with. Saviano also gave his old friends a shout-out on his Instagram where he said, "The more things change, the more things stay the same, and the more I enjoy hanging out with these 2." 

Also, in 2014, The TV Land Awards honored the cast and creators of The Wonder Years, getting them all back together on one stage (except father Dan Lauria who was on Broadway at the time). In preparation for the honor, the cast showed up on Dateline and Good Morning America to help spike DVD sales.

The accounting department - along with Creed (Creed Bratton) and Leslie David Baker (Stanley) - had a mini-reunion for the 2018 Keystone Comic Con in Philadelphia, PA. The group did a panel for fans and got dinner together. It is unclear whether or not they were at a Chili's or if they felt God there.
