Supergirl and The Flash will live on as expected, but co-creator Andrew Kreisberg has been cancelled by Warner Bros. following sexual harassment claims.
Less than three weeks after Andrew Kreisberg, co-creator/executive producer of the CW’s DC series The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, was suspended from his duties over allegations of sexual harassment, he has been fired by the studio, Warner Bros TV Group, following an investigation into the accusations.
“After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately,” the company said in a statement. “We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions.”
Kreisberg had been hands-on involved in The Flash and Supergirl, serving as co-showrunner on both. Following his exit, Berlanti, co-creator/exec producer of the two series, will step in for him, assuming additional responsibilities on both The Flash, where he will work closely with executive producer/co-showrunner Todd Helbing, and Supergirl, where he will work closely with executive producers/co-showrunners Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller.
How will Supergirl and The Flash fare following Kreisberg’s departure? Stay tuned…
