The Truth Behind The Scandal That Led To 'The Wonder Years' Cancellation

We all remember the coming-of-age drama that highlighted the issues that a middle class family faced in the early 90s. It followed a young Kevin Arnold, played by Fred Savage, growing up in the suburbs, and won a ton of awards for it's relatable plot and new forms of storytelling.

However, the show was cut short after the 6th season, and no one was quite sure why the hit series was cancelled so soon.

Now, it's been revealed that the show met its end after a crew member accused then-16-year-old Fred Savage of constant sexual harassment.

The costume designer for The Wonder Years, Monique Long, filed a lawsuit in 1993, targeting Savage for behavior she deemed to be harassment, saying that she couldn't do her job because of him.

Long has said that the 16-year-old boy kept asking to hold her hand and made repeated sexual comments to her, including asking if they could have an affair.

A co-star from the show has recently gone to the media to reveal what they think really happened.

It wasn't easy being a child star, and when he was 14 he decided to take time off to go to high school and live a

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all
