Wonder Years actor Fred Savage has been fired from directing an upcoming reboot of the hit ABC series after allegations of inappropriate conduct surfaced.
20th Television issued a statement on Friday announcing that “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.”
Savage is facing three different accusations of verbal abuse, and according to media sources, he has been cooperating with the investigation against him.
This isn’t the first time that Savage has found himself accused of inappropriate or abusive behavior.
Savage was accused of sexual assault alongside his Wonder Years co-star Jason Hervey, an accusation that got the original series canceled.
Savage was 16-years-old at the time and the case was settled out of court. Decades later, Savage still is getting in trouble, and he is going to have a hard time finding people who will give him the benefit of the doubt.
