Brace yourselves guys: a ‘Full House’ revival is officially heading to Netflix. So, who of the original cast is returning? We’ve got EXCLUSIVE scoop!
Be still, our 90s-loving hearts. John Stamos has officially confirmed the rumors that a Full House spinoff is in fact happening. Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of Fuller House, set to drop sometime in 2016. Now with the project moving ahead, we’re free to wonder who from the original cast will return. We know John is in, but what about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who made their showbiz debut on the series at the ripe age of one, both playing the role of sassy Michelle Tanner? Sadly, the talented twins will not return, and we’ve got the EXCLUSIVE scoop as to why!
‘Full House’: Olsen Twins Not Returning
Fans are losing their minds over the confirmation that we’re getting a full house spinoff, aptly titled Fuller House. Better yet, a ton of the original cast is on board! Sadly, though, there is one notable exception: Mary-Kate and Ashley will not reprise their role as Michelle, we can confirm EXCLUSIVELY.
“They don’t consider themselves actors anymore and they don’t want to return to acting even though they know how much people would love it,” a source revealed to us. “As much as everyone would want the twins to be a part of the show it would be a current act of God and a miracle for them to make an appearance. Everyone else is down to appear on the show but the girls are very unlikely to join in on the fun.”
Such a bummer, but nothing is going to damper our excitement for this revival.
We ‘Got It Perfect’
Fuller House, according to John, will focus on DJ (Candace Cameron-Bruce), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy (Andrea Barber). “Candace has three boys and it’s sort of a reversal and we turn the house over to her,” John said. “It’s a labor of love and we’ve literally been trying for so many years to get it right and I think we finally got it perfect.”
So, is it 2016 yet?
Are you guys excited for Fuller House? Are you bummed the Olsen twins aren’t on board?
