Season 4 of the recently-renewed "Full House" spinoff will still move forward, going into production in a few months.

Netflix hit "Fuller House" is family friendly on the screen, but apparently a different story behind the scenes.

Jeff Franklin, the showrunner and creator of the sitcom sequel to his previous hit "Full House," has been let go, both Netflix and Warner Bros. TV announced Wednesday.

"We are not renewing Jeff Franklin's production deal and he will no longer be working on 'Fuller House,'" Warner Bros. TV said in a statement to Variety. A spokesperson for Netflix added, "'Fuller House' will return for a fourth season, as planned. We hope to go into production in the next few months."

The accusations levied against Franklin include verbal abuse, inappropriate comments in the writers' room and sexually charged stories and comments about his personal relationships. None of the complaints detail any specific events of sexual harassment or misconduct toward any staffers. Variety also reported sources claiming that Franklin brought women he dated on the set, and even gave them small roles on the show.

Warner Bros. TV purportedly received its first complaint about Franklin more than two years ago, and launched an investigation after multiple reports were received more recently.

"Fuller House" stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber in the roles they made famous in the 1990s. The second half of the hit show's third season dropped on Dec. 22, 2017.
