Andrew Kreisberg, co-developer and showrunner on CW's The Flash and Supergirl TV shows, has been fired by Warner Brothers Television Group after accusations of sexual harassment.

"After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately," the company said in a statement to SYFY WIRE. "We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions."

This new development comes after Kreisberg, 46, was suspended from his post two weeks ago. He was also an executive producer on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, which he helped develop with Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim. 

The statement added that Berlanti is assuming showrunning duties for The Flash and Supergirl, "working closely" with executive producers/co-showrunners Todd Helbing (The Flash) Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller (Supergirl). 

Berlanti Productions also issued a statement about Kreisberg's firing.

"Warner Bros. Television Group recently concluded its investigation into the allegations against Andrew Kreisberg. We encouraged and supported this investigation, we believe and support the individuals who came forward, and we agree with the studio’s decision. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of all our colleagues — coworkers, crew and staff alike," said Berlanti's production company in a separate statement.
