Fred Savage was fired from The good years.
Savage, who worked as the show’s executive producer and director, was fired after an investigation into multiple misconduct complaints, a 20th Television spokesperson confirmed to E! News.
“Recently, we became aware of allegations of inappropriate conduct by Fred Savage, and as required by policy, an investigation has been launched,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “Upon completion, the decision was made to end his employment as executive producer and director of The good years.”
Although there have been no further comments on the specific allegations, Deadline reports that the allegations allegedly included “verbal outbursts and inappropriate behavior”.
E! News reached out to Savage’s attorney for comment, but did not hear back.
In 2018, Savage was sued for alleged gender harassment, battery, battery and gender discrimination by Young Joo HwangFox’s customer The grinder, which featured Savage. Hwang said the “aggressive behavior, bullying, and constant use of profanity aimed at Savage employees went unchecked,” according to Variety.
In 2019, Hwang’s lawsuit was dismissed after both sides settled out of court. Savage denied his accusations.
