Fred Savage fired from Wonder Years reboot

Fred Savage was fired as ABC’s executive producer and manager The good years reboot following misconduct allegations, 20th Television confirmed on Friday. Savage starred in the original 1988 series as a child, and served as executive producer and director for the 2021 reboot, which has yet to be renewed for a second season. “Recently, we became aware of allegations of inappropriate conduct by Fred Savage, and as policy dictates, an investigation has been launched,” a 20th Television spokesperson said. “Upon completion, the decision was made to end his employment as executive producer and director of The good years.” ABC and 20th Television did not provide further details of the investigation.

This isn’t the first time Savage has been accused of improper conduct. Savage has previously been accused of physical harassment on the set of The grinder in 2018. The same year, Alley Mills, who played Savage’s mother in The good years, revealed that the show ended after six seasons largely because of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Savage and his co-star, Jason Hervey. Savage has yet to release a statement regarding his dismissal from The good years to restart.
