In January, Variety reported that the disgraced actor, 34, had suddenly left the show’s cast and that he didn’t comment on his actions.

Weeks before leaving The Order, the artist also removed herself from the cast of the upcoming romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding, starring Jennifer Lopez.

Hammer released a statement at the time citing the welfare of his children as the reason for his departure from the film.

The controversy surrounding the actor’s past originally started in January, when several women made public statements about their alleged treatment by the artist.

An Instagram account was set up to publish screenshots of text messages he had sent to various people, many of which described sexual fantasies, including violence and cannibalism.

Although Hammer and his legal team made several statements denying the allegations, he was subsequently dropped by both his publicist and his talent agency WME.

The Call Me By Your Name actor later removed himself from the casts of the Starz series Gaslit and the Broadway play The Minutes, and he was dropped from the upcoming thriller film The Billion Dollar Spy.

In March, it was announced that Hammer was the subject of an ongoing investigation by Los Angeles Police Department into an allegation of sexual assault.
