The debate over the Confederate flag continues to spread to the entertainment world.

A week after Warner Bros. announced it would no longer sanction the manufacturing of "Dukes of Hazzard" merchandise featuring the flag, TV Land announced it's pulling reruns of the 1980s’ TV series featuring John Schneider and Tom Wopat as Bo and Luke Duke in fictional Hazzard County, Georgia.

Last week, Warner Bros. stopped licensing 'Dukes of Hazzard' products with the Confederate Flag

In a statement to ABC News, the network confirmed Wednesday that the show had been "removed" from its schedule, while declining to comment further.

Reruns can still be found on CMT and online.

TV Land's decision comes amid a growing national debate over the use of the Confederate flag, which was painted on the roof of The General Lee, the orange Dodge Charger driven by the Duke boys.
