Candace Cameron-Bure addresses firing of ‘Fuller House’ creator Jeff Franklin
Fuller House star Candace Cameron-Bure has addressed the firing of the show’s creator and showrunner Jeff Franklin.
Late last month Franklin, who created the Netflix series as well as the original Full House, was fired from the show amid complaints about his behavior on set and in the writers’ room, with accusations ranging from verbal abuse to inappropriate sexual comments. According to Variety, an anonymous letter was sent to Warner Bros. two years ago detailing Franklin’s pattern of behavior on set.
On Sunday, Cameron-Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner in the family-friendly series, told Entertainment Tonight that Franklin “is a dear friend and he’s been a wonderful showrunner and he will be sorely missed from all of us. But the show must go on. We’ll do that and we hope that we will have a great season.”
The show was just renewed for a fourth season, and Cameron-Bure said production is starting “pretty soon.” Fuller House has somehow become one of Netflix’s most popular original shows, despite a ratings dip and lukewarm reviews. Netflix has figured out a consumption model here. As Vanity Fair‘s Richard Lawson said last year, “When watching it, a kind of mind-blanking stasis descends, one different from HGTV’s warm spell.”
Franklin said on Instagram last week that he is “heartbroken” to be leaving the show but did not address the accusations.
