The scope studio Alcon Entertainment launched an independent investigation after the star of the series Cas Anvar was faced this week with numerous accusations of sexual violence harassment and sexual assault.

The controversy has snowballed in the past two days, with more women showing up, sharing their stories on Twitter, including screenshots of what they say are Anvar’s inappropriate messages. None of the alleged sexual assault incidents occurred on the set of the science fiction series, which was picked up by Amazon after it was canceled by Syfy, with several cases involving fan conventions.

Daniel Abraham, one of the co-authors of The scope a series of books, on which the television show is based, have revealed that after discovering that a member of the cast had been charged with sexual misconduct, they “immediately forwarded these serious charges to studio Alcon. Alcon has hired an independent company to investigate this matter and takes these allegations very seriously. “

The account of James SA Corey, the pen name that the authors Abraham and Ty Franck use to The scope , also tweeted news of the survey, thanking the women who spoke.

Alcon confirmed to Deadline that the company had recently learned of the allegations and immediately hired an independent investigator, refusing to comment on an ongoing investigation. An Anvar representative did not respond to an email requesting comment.

Charges against Anvar gained visibility in a Reddit thread which included all the claims, and also included the tweets and reactions of Abraham and Corey from Scope cast members. This includes Dominique Tipper, whose statement was published on behalf of Corey, Steven Strait and Wes Chatham.

After three seasons on Syfy, The scope has been recovered by Amazon. Its fourth season was released on the streamer last December. The series has been renewed for a fifth season.
