Warner Bros. Television has cut ties with “Fuller House” creator Jeff Franklin following complaints about inappropriate behavior from the showrunner.

“We are not renewing Jeff Franklin’s production deal and he will no longer be working on ‘Fuller House,’ ” Warner Bros. Television said in a statement.

According to Variety, which first reported the news, Warner Bros. received an anonymous letter two years ago detailing verbally abusive behavior and inappropriate sexual comments from Franklin in the show’s writers room.

Franklin will no longer be associated with the Netflix comedy, but a spokesperson for the streaming service confirmed on Wednesday that the show “will return for a fourth season, as planned. We hope to go into production in the next few months.”

A spokesperson for Franklin did not return TheWrap’s request for comment.

A spinoff of the hit ABC sitcom “Full House,” Netflix’s “Fuller House” stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. Bob Boyett also executive produces.
