Six women have come forward saying Fred Savage was fired from the Wonder Years reboot because he was sexually harassing female crew members. 

The married father-of-three, who rose to fame after starring in the original Wonder Years in 1988, was let go from directing the sequel on May 6, with Disney citing 'allegations of inappropriate conduct,' but refusing to elaborate. 

The women that made those allegations want to make the details known, accusing Savage, 46, of moving a young female crew member into his Atlanta home and following another into a restroom and putting her hands on his groin, according to The Hollywood Reporter

After the story of Savage's firing first broke, Page Six reported that the he was being supported by friends and family, including his wife of 18 years, Jennifer Lynn Stone. The article is what prompted the women to come forward to disclose their allegations, which Savage has denied.  

'I and the other women feel that people need to know what the wrongdoing was,' one of the women said.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity out of fear for their careers, the six women said there were two sides to Savage that were constantly flipping back and forth: a supportive and charismatic director, and a dark and angry alter ego.

The women claimed that while Savage appeared to be all-smiles on set, he would sometimes verbally assault 'below-the-line employees who don't have power.' 

Several of the women said they grew uneasy about Savage's relationship with a young woman working on the crew, claiming she moved into the Cabbagetown neighborhood home in Atlanta where the reboot was being shot and that Savage occupied. 

One woman told THR that the young crew member told her Savage was buying her gift and discussing a future together with her. 

Despite the alleged romance, several women said they observed Savage being 'extremely controlling of her daily behaviors,' describing him as 'manipulative and erratic.' 

They said the situation got so bad that one of them tried to shield the young crew member from Savage, at which point, 'he proceeded to verbally harass me and belittle me,' the woman told THR.

Another woman says she befriended Savage while on the set and the he invited her to dinners and offered her expensive gifts, which she refused. 

Although the woman claims Savage was promising to help her apprising writing and comedy career, she said she was abruptly fired from the set last year. 

Then, in December 2021, she said she was invited to a group outing at a bar in Astoria, Georgia, where Savage allegedly assault her. 

One woman said she tried standing up for the young crew member Savage was allegedly living with, but the director then belittled her. Pictured: Savage (left) with Williams and Saladin Patterson (right) on set of the Wonder Years reboot
