After months of speculation and hope, Full House star Lori Loughlin has finally confirmed that the Netflix spin-off of the series, Fuller House will not include the Olsen twins.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen shared the role of Michelle Tanner, the youngest of the Tanner clan, for the entirety of the show's original run from 1987 until 1995. However Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis) recently told the Huffington Post that neither of the pair will star in the upcoming Netflix spin-off series, Fuller House, saying that the filming on the first season has "wrapped and they didn't come in," also adding, "no, I don't think they're going to make a cameo. They didn't this season."
Aw nuts, say it isn't so!
Talk of an Olsen twin cameo in the series has been swirling since it was confirmed that all of the original cast of Full House signed on to appear in Fuller House with the exception of the Olsens.
In October, John Stamos, who is reprising his role as heartthrob Uncle Jessie, voiced doubt that the pair would have a cameo on the show Watch What Happens Live, with Stamos saying:
"I called them up, asked them to do it. They’re onto a different phase of their lives, they haven’t acted in a long time, but everything is super sweet between us."
Despite the decision from Mary-Kate and Ashley not to appear in the series, Fuller House will be absolutely jam packed with nostalgia, with Loughlin revealing that all returning cast members will appear in the premiere episode of Fuller House, and are also "sprinkled out through the rest of the season."
Fuller House is the continuation of the Full House story, but will this time focus on the eldest of the Tanner daughter, DJ, played by Candace Cameron Bure, as she deals with becoming a widow and single parent to three boys. Bure will be joined by Andrea Barber as best friend Kimmy Gibler, and Jodie Sweetin as younger sister Stephanie Tanner. Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of the series, which is slated for release in 2016.
