Fred Savage Has Been Fired from ‘Wonder Years’ Reboot Following Misconduct Investigation

E! News

Actor Fred Savage rose to fame for his role as Kevin Arnold on the show “The Wonder Years.” He was the star of the show, which was abruptly canceled due to a lawsuit when he was a teenager. A former costume designer on the show accused Savage and his co-star Jason Hervey of sexual harassment. Savage was 16 years old at the time, and Hervey, who played Kevin’s older brother Wayne Arnold, was 20 years old.

The lawsuit was settled out of court, but that was not the last time Savage faced allegations of misconduct. In 2015, a female co-worker accused Savage of both attacking and harassing her on the set of the show “The Grinder.”  After an investigation, 20th Television, the company who produced “The Grinder,” found the allegations to be false.

As far as sexual harassment charges from “The Wonder Years,” actress Alley Mills, who played Kevin’s mom on the show, called that lawsuit “ridiculous.” She describes Savage as the “least offensive, most wonderful, sweet human being that ever walked the face of the Earth.”

Until recently, Savage was working as a director and executive producer on the reboot of “The Wonder Years,” but then another crew member accused Savage of “inappropriate conduct.” A spokesperson from Disney’s 20th Television told Deadline that an investigation was conducted and the decision was made to fire Savage.

Watch the video below for more details about the accusations of Savage’s misconduct on “The Wonder Years.”

Season 1 of “The Wonder Years” reboot is currently airing. No word yet if it will get picked up for a second season or not.

Do you think Savage is guilty of misconduct, or do you think the allegations are false? Have you watched “The Wonder Years” reboot? Do you think there will be a second season of the show, or do you think the allegations against Savage will cause the show to end permanently?
