However, despite Savage being left out of the reboot of The Wonder Years, those close to the situation claim he still has “overwhelming support” from his existing friends, and he also has the full backing of his wife, Jennifer Lynn Stone, with whom he shares three children.

The allegations about the actor’s “self-reflection” come after other sources opened up to People about his “nervousness”, claiming that Savage is “irritable” and prone to “occasional sudden outbursts” when he directs.

An insider to the outlet added that Savage is part of going beyond scenes, which puts crews under more pressure, leads to longer days and gives him “more opportunities to take pictures of people”.

The source claimed, “He works hard for his crew by always doing too much.” “Some of the directors just got over it. Sometimes they feel like they didn’t get the performance or they wanted to try another angle or things like that.

Neither Savage nor any of the spokespersons would comment on the nature of the “inappropriate behavior” that led to his dismissal, which allegedly included both verbal anger and inappropriate behavior, Deadline reported.

However, 20th Television released a statement last week to confirm his exclusion from the show, saying: “Recently, we became aware of allegations of inappropriate behavior by Fred Savage and, as with politics, an investigation has been opened.

Upon its completion, the decision was made to terminate his tenure as executive producer and director of The Wonder Years.

Savage was a young star when he appeared on the original series, which ran on ABC from 1988 to 1993 and was followed by a white suburban family in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

A new version of the show, featuring Don Cheadle as the narrator, premiered last fall. The new series revolves around a black family living in Montgomery, Alabama in the late 1960s.

This isn’t the first time Savage has found himself embroiled in controversy. In 2018, he was sued by designer Youngjoo Hwang, who claimed that he assaulted and harassed her on the set of the TV show The Grinder.

The insider also claimed that Savage has 'full support' from his wife Jennifer Lynn Stone, whom he married in 2004 and with whom he shares three children.

Savage, who later settled the lawsuit, called the accusations “completely baseless and totally untrue,” and an investigation at the time by 20th Century Television acquitted them.

On Monday, Anahita Seda, the attorney who represented Hwang in her lawsuit against Savage, spoke about his dismissal, telling Page Six that she was “not a little surprised” by it and that she felt it was “a long time to come.”

When my client came to me in 2018 with her allegations against Mr. Savage, we found out that there had been at least one lawsuit filed against him in the past and that Mr. Savage had engaged in this type of behavior not only towards my client but other women as well.

The latest allegations against Savage come four years after his on-screen mother Alley Mills claimed that the original Wonder Years cancellation followed a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against Savage (16) and Jason Hervey (then 20), which was settled from a tennis court.

Monique Long, the woman who accused the 16-year-old of sexual harassment, worked as a costume accessory on the set.

She said she has accused both Savage and Hervey of “verbally and physically harassing her,” according to Limit.

In response to Mills’ dismal claims, she told the outlet via email: “My only response to Mrs. Mills’ slander is that it proves exactly why women in the industry are forced to remain silent about sexual harassment.”

She went on to describe Savage as “the least offensive, coolest, cutest human that ever walked the face of the earth.”
