You’re in big trouble, Mister!
The Olsen twins will NOT be appearing in the new Netflix Full House spin-off.
The role of Michelle, the littlest, cheekiest Tanner girl, was shared by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen from the time they were nine months old.
John Stamos, who played hot Uncle Jesse (have mercy!) and will also produce the new show, tweeted that he is “heartbroken” that the twins won’t be returning.
The new series, Fuller House, focuses on eldest sister DJ (Candace Bure), who, like her father before her, is widowed and raising her three children alone. The children, incredibly, are basically the exact same age as she and her sisters were when dad Danny Tanner was widowed! Family curse?
Her best friend Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber) is also a single mum and on-hand to help (natch) and so is middle sis Stephanie “how rude!” Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), who is now an aspiring musician.
Pretty much all the other former cast members will be returning in some capacity for the TV sequel.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen stayed on Full House for its entire eight seasons, then they became mini brand moguls with films and merchandise. Since then, they’ve turned into fashion mavens, with two high-end labels The Row, and Elizabeth and James.
Executive producer Robert L. Boyett released an official statement regarding the Olsen twins:
“Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of ‘Fuller House,’ I know how much ‘Full House’ has meant to them, and they are still very much considered family. It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes toward ‘Fuller House.’”
