Jeff Franklin, the brains behind 'Full House' and 'Fuller House,' has been fired over allegations of misconduct. In addition to the firing, Warner Bros declined to renew his production deal. Warner Bros released the following statement regarding Franklin's termination:
"We are not renewing Jeff Franklin's production deal and he will no longer be working on Fuller House."
He is being accused of verbal assault against staff, and making sexually charged comments about his personal life. While he has not been accused specifically of sexual misconduct, he has been known to bring various women on the set and give them small roles on the show.
So, will season four of 'Fuller House' actually happen?
Yes. Netflix released a statement assuring viewers that Fuller House will go on as scheduled:
"Fuller House will return for a fourth season, as planned. We hope to go into production in the next few months."
Fans of the original show are worried about this latest development. As you all remember, after Jeff Franklin left the show in the 90s, ratings had dropped, which led to its cancellation in 1995.
Will we see history repeat itself? Who knows. I think this time around, the show will be fine. John Stamos has been doing a lot of work on the show behind-the-scenes, so maybe we will see him have more of a say in what happens in future seasons.
I, for one, am shocked by Jeff Franklin's misconduct allegations. I am glad that it won't ruin production of the show. I like 'Fuller House' a lot and can't wait to see what happens in season 4!
