“Fuller House” creator Jeff Franklin is “heartbroken” after he was fired from the show following complaints about his behavior.
“I’m heartbroken to be leaving ‘Fuller House,'” Franklin wrote on Instagram on Wednesday, along with a photo of cast members Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. “Creating and running ‘Full House’ and ‘Fuller House’ has been the greatest joy. I wish the cast, my second family for over 30 years, continued success. I’m so proud of all we accomplished together, and beyond grateful to our loyal fans. Adios Tanneritos!”
On Wednesday, Warner Bros. Television said in a statement that it would not be “renewing Jeff Franklin’s production deal and he will no longer be working on ‘Fuller House.'”
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, a spinoff of “Full House,” 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.”
