The director and executive producer of “The Wonder Years” was fired after multiple allegations of misconduct surfaced. Fred Savage was fired due to his handling of the allegations. The reboot of the original ’80s sitcom is set to premiere in September 2021. Fred Savage directed eight of the nine episodes. Whether the allegations are true or not is unclear. While Savage reportedly cooperated with the investigation, he was still fired.
The casting decision to axe Savage comes amid reports that Page Six is investigating the situation. The producer has declined to comment on the allegations of misconduct, saying the situation is “ongoing.” Page Six producers have refused to address the matter, but insiders say Fred Savage may be able to make an effort to express his displeasure. But the producers knew the exec’s firing was likely to backfire.
The allegations against Savage were reported by a female member of the crew of the show. She claimed that Savage had a hostile work environment and “violently struck” her and lost his cool with other women. Fox conducted a thorough investigation and found no evidence that Savage had committed any wrongdoing. But the show was ultimately cancelled. Regardless of the cause, Fred Savage has certainly done a lot of self reflection following his firing from the Wonder Years.
Whether he has the right to speak out has been the subject of a lawsuit filed against him. While the lawsuit was withdrawn, Fred Savage did receive widespread support from co-workers. The allegations were not sexual, and he has not yet released a statement about the allegations. In the meantime, Savage may be looking for a new job. If Fred Savage has a successful career, it is hard to imagine his future without his Wonder Years work.
“The Wonder Years” was a groundbreaking show. It’s so influential that other shows began imitating it. As a result, broadcast television has been lagging behind cable and has moved away from balancing comedy and drama. Thankfully, they are catching up now. And that’s something we should all celebrate.

After Wonder Years’ firing, Fred Savage has been doing a lot of self-reflection. In the wake of his firing, he has taken some time off to reflect on his work and life. The show has also aired a scene from “Heart of Darkness” that shows his struggle as a black person. A few days later, he has a lot of work on his plate.
