Between 1988 and 1993, Fred Savage gave life to the unforgettable Kevin Arnold in 'The Wonder Years.' Back then he was an adorable, charming little boy.
34 years later, the series returns to television with Fred Savage himself as its director and executive producer. However, this time Savage isn't acting, instead he has been in charge of the reboot of the series.
Everything seemed perfect and fans were thrilled, until the news broke: Fred Savage had suddenly been fired from the reboot in which he had been participating since 2021.
After an internal investigation, 20th Century Television decided to terminate Fred Savage's contract and remove him from what is, without a doubt, his greatest series.
The reason for the dismissal was the "inappropriate behavior" of Fred Savage on set, as confirmed by 20th Century Television in a statement.
"Recently, we were made aware of allegations of inappropriate conduct by Fred Savage, and as is policy, an investigation was launched," a spokesperson for the production company said in a statement.
"Upon its completion, the decision was made to terminate his employment as an executive producer and director of 'The Wonder Years,'" the statement concluded.
Deadline revealed more details of the "inappropriate behaviors" that motivated the dismissal of the famous protagonist of the series.
According to Deadline, several members of the crew complained about Fred Savage's verbal attacks in addition to other reprehensible attitudes.
Interestingly, also with 20th Century Fox involved, Fred Savage had similar problems in the series 'The Grinder', in 2015.
On that occasion, the investigation closed in a favorable way for the actor. The series was canceled after the first season, despite favorable criticism and public approval.
But there's more... A costume designer for 'The Wonder Years', Monique Long, filed a lawsuit for harassment. It was the cause of the show's cancellation in 1993, after six seasons, Rolling Stone recalls.
Monique Long was 32 years old at the time, and she claimed that Fred Savage, who was half her age, as well as Jason Hervey (Wayne Arnold in the series), had harassed her.
Even though the lawsuit was settled before reaching the courts, it caused one of the most popular television series to get cancelled.
Something similar might have happened with the reboot. The first season of the series was broadcast on ABC in the fall of 2021. Luckily, ABC announced in May 2022 that 'The Wonder Years' would get a second season.
