As Nicki Swift previously reported, Warner Bros. TV announced that they would no longer be working with Franklin on future seasons of Fuller House. According to Variety, Franklin had previously been accused of being verbally abusive and of making sexually inappropriate comments to employees. However, he reportedly has not been formally accused of sexual harassment.

The publication noted that studio execs had allegedly received an anonymous letter years earlier, in which Franklin was called "a walking lawsuit waiting to happen." An insider also told Variety that Franklin reportedly had a habit of casting women he dated in small roles on the show.
