Candace Cameron Bure Reacts to ‘Fuller House’ Boss Jeff Franklin’s Firing
The moral sheen of Netflix series Fuller House was soiled earlier this month when Deadline reported that series creator Jeff Franklin had been fired for inappropriate conduct around set. Now, star Candace Cameron Bure — who's worked with Franklin since origin series Full House premiered in 1987 — is speaking out on the shocking firing.
"Jeff is a dear friend and he's been a wonderful showrunner and he will be sorely missed from all of us," Cameron Bure told Entertainment Tonight at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party on Sunday (March 4). "But the show must go on. We'll do that and we hope that we will have a great season."
Cameron Bure noted the show's cast and crew are ready to go whole hog into filming the show's fourth season in spite of the shakeup.
"I can't even believe it, but we'll start production pretty soon," she added. "I don't know when it's going to air, probably the end of the year, but we're just working away."
Deadline reported on March 1 that Franklin had been booted after being allegedly verbally abusive to members of his set and making inappropriate remarks in the writers room. Warner Bros. has also severed tied with Franklin, the site reported.
“We are not renewing Jeff Franklin’s production deal and he will no longer be working on Fuller House,” the company noted in an official statement.
