Fuller House creator and show runner Jeff Franklin has been fired, and will no longer be a part of the Netflix sitcom. His firing follows reported complaints about his behavior in the writers’ room. Franklin, who created Full House and it’s sequel Fuller House, has been accused of being verbally abusive and making inappropriate statements in the writers’ room and on set, according to Variety. As a result of the allegations, Warner Bros. TV, which produces the series, has declined to renew the veteran TV writer’s production deal. A Netflix spokesperson said, “Fuller House will return for a fourth season, as planned. We hope to go into production in the next few months.” Fuller House was renewed in January for season 4. Representatives for Fuller did not immediately respond to comment as of press time.
