Warner Bros. Television has fired Andrew Kreisberg, showrunner and executive producer of ArrowSupergirl and other popular CW network superhero dramas, after an investigation into multiple allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against him.

“After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately,” the studio said in a statement Wednesday.

“Greg Berlanti will assume 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. We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions.”

The decision comes a few weeks after Kreisberg was suspended following a report published by entertainment industry outlet Variety. In the article, more than a dozen individuals who had worked with Kreisberg on the Warner Bros. shows described being subjected to and witnessing incidents of inappropriate touching and endemic sexual harassment on-set.
