Andrew Kreisberg Fired

It's not the kind of news we want to report after such a wonderfully successful crossover event, but it is extremely important and needs to be noted. Executive Producer, Andrew Kreisberg, has been fired from his position at Warner Brothers. This news comes to us from Entertainment Weekly after an internal investigation concluded. Once the initial reports were filed by fifteen women and four men, Kreisberg was suspended from his duties. The suspension has resulted in termination effective immediately. Warner Brothers Television offered this statement:

After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately. 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.

Berlanti Productions, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter’s production company behind the shows, also issued a statement.

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.

We know this is a very sad topic and to think that such behavior was going on in a show we love and that promotes strong female characters is simply appalling. If you'd like to share your thoughts on this news, the comments are open below as well as the forum.

Developing a good product requires teamwork and the belief that all members of the team are able to contribute openly to the process. Hopefully, as a best case scenario from this situation, now all members of the Supergirl cast and crew can feel comfortable enough in their work environment so, that they can together, create an even better show.


I think Season 3 is already better so far then the previous seasons. SuperGirl is front and center in control of her show. The Danvers sisters are back and so are the sister moments and the crossover was awesome. It can't IMHO get any better than this.


I disagree and think that this season is no way better than season 2,IMHO. Bigger budget, more action and load up on the super powers will make the show much better. You know, like last season.

This is extremely unfortunate and sad for all involved - Andrew Kreisberg and his family included - since it is a grave matter and an important social issue. Having said this, it was probably deemed necessary by those in the know to do this in order to regain a modicum of decency and respect in the workplace.

So, in quick succession, we've lost two of the show's creators (Ali Adler and now Andrew Kreisberg) for varying reasons. I can only hope that the show can go on without further negative interruption and still retain the creative spark and edge that it has exhibited so far.


There was also talk that the actors and crew on the sets said they would walk off if he ever showed up again....that probably had a lot to do with it....lol

I can think of two things that will make this show better. Bigger Budget and Monty and Kara back together again. I think that bitch Saturn Girl is controlling Monty's mind and that's why he married her. lol

A horrible situation, but a happy ending. I was very happy to see that WB listened to the victims and did the only right thing by firing Kreisberg. It gives me hope that we're truly on our way to changing our culture of having allowed people in power to do whatever they want with no repercussions.



Agreed! Isn't it funny that these same individuals who were outraged by President Trump's remarks are indeed the sexual predators. The people in politics and the media.
Hypocrites the whole lot of them. And stay tuned because the list is going to get longer.


Agree 100%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I too find it hard to believe that Berlanti and other high ranking producers as well as WBTV exes did not know what he was doing all these years

I have faith in our new show runners, they have been around since season 1 and wrote the best Supergirl episode, Falling. They also always talk so passionately about Reign, I'm confident that that is their story and they will bring it to a good end.

After an investigation he lost his job and that's how it should be. It's also the end of his career and I can't celebrate another person's downfall even if it was by their own actions.

In my opinion it's unproductive to politicize this complicated issue. I think the heart of the issue is power and how those who have it use it to control those who don't. In my experience it's not even always about sex but the ability to control another person or make them feel inferior so the person in power can maintain their position. How we treat others isn't a political issue it's a human issue with no borders. Didn't Professor Stein (RIP) elude to the old adage of man's inhumanity to man. The biggest difference between Kara and Overgirl was in how they chose to use their powers. Overgirl had no issue with using her powers to intimidate and control others. Kara would rather die than use her powers that way. People in power have a responsibility to use it wisely. To me that means at a minimum not using their power in a way that makes those under them feel unsafe or that they can't speak up.

As to the details of the investigation I have no desire to know them. WB is a private sector company and is under no obligation to release them and may in fact be legally obligated not to in order to protect the privacy of the victims.
