Full House to return, but the Olsen twins aren’t giving anything away.

Should we start a Change.org campaign?

Everywhere you look (see what we did there?), there’s a story about the upcoming Full House revival/spin-off that’s brewing on Netflix.

The big question: will Michelle be in it?

The adorable youngest Tanner sister was played by twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, 28, who went on to become adult fashion moguls, but oddly remained child-sized.

The new series focuses on eldest sister DJ (Candace Bure), who, like her father before her, is widowed and raising her children alone. Her best friend Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber) is on-hand to help (natch) and so is middle sis Stephanie “how rude!” Tanner (Jodie Sweetin).

And Michelle?

“We just found out about it,” Mary-Kate Olsen told Women’s Wear Daily earlier this week. “I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening.

“I ran into Bob (Saget, who played father Danny Tanner) the other day and we didn’t even talk about it,” said Ashley.

“I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John (Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse and is producing the new series),” said Mary-Kate.

After all their sartorial glory, why would the pair want to reprise a role that doesn’t even recognise them as individuals? I mean, sure, their entire career is predicated on their being twins, and they’re known collectively as the Olsen Twins, but still. They have different personalities.

Mary-Kate: “We think differently, we feel differently, we respond to different things or we react to different things.”


However, we only need one of them to play Michelle – which would it be?!

The pair, who in 2005 at age 18 were declared fashion icons by The New York Times for pioneering their signature “homeless” look, now run two super-luxe clothing lines, The Row and Elizabeth and James. Between hawking luxury capes and $30,000 backpacks, and smoking, will they have time to act?

“I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening,” Mary Kate said to Women’s Wear Daily.

“I’m going to called [Saget] and get his perspective.”

Danny Tanner is still Michelle’s go-to guy when she has a serious dilemma! That is so Full House.
