On Friday, it was reported that the Princess Bride actor was fired from the Wonder Years reboot over "inappropriate conduct."

Prior to the announcement, both fans and peers had been vocal about alleged "years of bad behavior" from Fred.

As reported by Deadline, Fred’s role as director and executive producer of the ABC reboot has been “terminated” following “multiple complaints of misconduct.”

“The allegations were investigated, leading to Savage’s dismissal,” they shared, with a Season 2 of the reboot not yet renewed following the investigation – Season 1 premiered in 2021.

The statement from parent company Disney read: "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."

Deadline revealed that the allegations were said to involve "verbal outbursts and inappropriate behavior" though the specifics of his firing or investigation are not yet confirmed.

Fred rose to TV stardom as Kevin Arnold in the ‘60s and ‘70s-set show when it originally ran.

The Wonder Years aired for six seasons from 1988-1993.

Fred was the youngest Emmy-nominated actor for his original role in the first run of the sitcom.

The reboot, which he directed eight episodes of – follows a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama during the 1960s.


More recently, he starred alongside Rob Lowe in the axed Fox series The Grinder.

At that time, allegations against him were also made.

A crew member accused the actor of attacking and harassing her on the set in 2015. 

Fred called the allegations “completely without merit and absolutely untrue."

An investigation into those claims found no evidence of wrongdoing.

The matter was settled out of court.

As Fred pivoted towards directing, alleged shadows of his past still followed.
