Steve Baldikoski and Bryan Behar have been named the new showrunners of “Fuller House,” stepping in for series creator Jeff Franklin.

Baldikoski and Behar have served as co-executive producers on the show since its premiere in 2016. Their previous credits include “Jennifer Falls,” “Last Man Standing” and “8 Simple Rules.”

Warner Bros. Television cut ties with Franklin last month after complaints about his on-set behavior, removing him from the show ahead of its planned fourth season, and opting not to renew his overall deal.

It was first reported in February that an anonymous letter was sent to the producers of the Netflix sitcom two years ago, detailing verbally abusive behavior and inappropriate sexual comments from Franklin in the show’s writers room.

“I’m heartbroken to be leaving ‘Fuller House,'” Franklin wrote on Instagram following his departure from the show. “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!”
