Unfortunately, this isn't the first time he's been accused of anything like this.
A spokeswoman for 20th Television confirms that Fred Savage has been fired as executive producer and director of ABC’s “The Wonder Years” due to misconduct claims.
“Recently, we were made aware of allegations of inappropriate conduct by Fred Savage, and as is policy, an investigation was launched. Upon its completion, the decision was made to terminate his employment as an executive producer and director of The Wonder Years,” a statement obtained by Deadline reads.
A lawsuit has also been filed against him by a staff member of Fox’s sitcom series “The Grinder,” alleging that he assaulted and harassed her on the show’s set in 2015. In the end, the case was resolved and dismissed.
“The Wonder Years” first season is slated to end later this month, but it has yet to be renewed for a second season. Savage has not yet issued a comment in response to the claims.
Reactions to Why Is Fred Savage Fired From "The Wonder Years"?
Can someone please tell me why Fred Savage got to direct eight episodes of ANY series starring a Black family in the first place?— Cassandra Nicholson (@WriterWarrior) May 7, 2022
Literally could have hired directors of color instead.
This is 2022. Let's be honest.— Rooster (@EarthRooster196) May 7, 2022
Fred Savage could have been fired for double dipping a corn chip.
I’m glad that Bill Murray & Fred Savage are being exposed for their inappropriate behavior! So many Boy Meets World costars spoke out against him for Sexual Assualt! I hope that one day Sabrina Carpenter & Rowan Blanchard breaks their silence on incidents on Girl Meets World set!— Alice Donald 🏳️🌈 (@alicedonald0) May 7, 2022
If you get fired from the Wonder Years, and you're Fred Savage, you did something real scummy. Like if you go to the circus and there's no elephant, you know that the elephant stomped on someone's head.— Chris Floyd (@cffloyd) May 7, 2022
Fred Savage being fired as producer from ABC's "wonder years" reboot for an "uncontrollable outburst" I don't know what was said and I don't care but now Disney acting like it has a sense of morals is quite comical— Chuck Morse (@ChuckMorse14) May 7, 2022
Fred Savage was just fired off the Wonder Years reboot. Now the woke crowd is going after Kevin Arnold? When does it end?— Pamela Hensley (@PamelaHensley22) May 7, 2022
Not surprised about Fred Savage. There’s been stories about his conduct for days. Everyone can’t be lying. I remember when he was on ‘Boy Meets World’, but I also remember when he was in ‘No One Would Tell’. Seems like these type of roles came to him naturally. What a surprise. pic.twitter.com/85S39YroTl
