After The Bill Cosby Show left the air, Cosby resumed his formal education.
He began graduate work at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Cosby's reputation was tarnished during the mid-2010s by numerous women who made sexual assault accusations against him; the earliest accusations date back decades.
More than 60 women have accused him of either attempted assault, rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, and sexual misconduct, which he had denied, and the statute of limitations had by then expired in nearly all cases. So I figure this way I'm doing as much for good race relations as the next guy." Younger, well-established comics like Jerry Seinfeld have credited Cosby as an innovator both as a practitioner of the genre of stand-up comedy, as well as a person who paved the way for comics to break into sitcom television.
Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault and sentenced to three to ten years in prison in September 2018. Seinfeld said of Cosby: "He opened a door for all of us, for all of the networks to even consider that this was a way to create a character, was to take someone who can hold an audience just by being up there and telling their story. He created the whole idea of taking a quote-unquote 'comic' and developing a TV show just from a persona that you see on stage." In 1965, Cosby was cast alongside Robert Culp in the I Spy espionage adventure series on NBC.
Cosby enlisted in the Navy and served as a hospital corpsman at the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia; at Naval Station Argentia in Newfoundland, Canada; and at the National Naval Medical Center in Maryland. While many comics of the time were using the growing freedom of that decade to explore material that was controversial and sometimes risqué, Cosby was making his reputation with humorous recollections of his childhood. I Spy became the first weekly dramatic television series to feature an African-American in a starring role.
