Exclusive: ABC’s The Wonder Years revival has cast Allen Maldonado in a recurring role.

Maldonado will portray Coach Long, an affable guy who takes his job coaching a pre-teen baseball team very seriously. His son Tony is part of the team, Dean Williams (Elisha E.J. Williams) the center character of the story.

It looks at how the Williamses, a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Al, in the turbulent late 1960s made sure it was the Wonder Years for them too.
