Warner Bros. TV, the producer of Fuller House, has declined to renew its deal with the producer in light of the complaints.

"We are not renewing Jeff Franklin's production deal and he will no longer be working on Fuller House," a spokesperson for Warner Bros TV said in a statement, obtained by Variety.

Franklin has been accused of being verbally abusive and making inappropriate statements in the writers' room and on set. Complaints were also lodged about Franklin's habit of bringing women he was dating to the set, where he sometimes gave them bit parts in the series.

In a separate statement, 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."

Franklin took to his Instagram profile to announce his departure.

The fourth season of the show was recently confirmed.
