Jeff Franklin, the creator of "Full House" and its Netflix sequel series "Fuller House," has effectively been fired over misconduct allegations. Warner Bros. TV declined to renew Franklin's production deal after the studio received complaints about his behavior on the set and in the writers room.
"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.
Franklin has been accused of verbally abusing staffers and making inappropriate, sexually charged comments about his personal life. He has not been accused of sexual harassment or physical misconduct. One source told Variety that Franklin would bring women he was dating on set and give them small roles. Franklin's rep declined to comment to Variety.
Even without Franklin's involvement, the show will go on. "'Fuller House' will return for a fourth season, as planned," Netflix said in a statement. "We hope to go into production in the next few months."
"Fuller House" has been a hit for Netflix and helped unleash a wave of '90s reboots, including "Will and Grace," "Roseanne" and "Murphy Brown."
