National Geographic has pushed ahead with the third season of Morgan's Freeman documentary series, 'The Story Of God'.
Freeman was accused of sexual harassment and misconduct in a report by CNN by several women, including some who worked for his own production company. Freeman, at the time, vehemently denied the accusations of harassment, and has not yet commented on the decision by NatGeo to reinstate the show.
In a statement given to EW, NatGeo explained that when "we learned of recent allegations surrounding Mr. Freeman completely unrelated to our work with him, as a precaution we paused production on our new season in order to complete a thorough investigation led by our parent company Fox executed through an independent investigator."
"The results of this investigation revealed no incidents of concern during any of our work with Mr. Freeman," the statement concluded. Freeman is the executive producer and narrator of the series, which focused on religion's place in the world and culture.
The series is expected to begin production this month, although no air date has been confirmed for the series.
