"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.
