This is not the first time that Savage has had misconduct claims against him. During the final season of the original The Wonder Years, a costume designer on the show filed a sexual harassment charge against Fred Savage and co-star Jason Hervey. The case was settled out of court, with Savage stating that he was "completely exonerated."
The new version of The Wonder Years is set in the late 1960s. It follows a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama through the eyes of 12-year-old Dean Williams. It has not been renewed for a second season yet.
