There will be one VERY important family member missing when ‘Fuller House’ comes to Netflix this spring — Michelle Tanner! But don’t worry, the Olsen Twins’ character’s absence will be explained on the show, and it might surprise you. Get the scoop here!
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen won’t be reprising their role as Michelle Tanner on Fuller House this spring, but that doesn’t mean their character’s story is going to be brushed over completely! In fact, we’ll learn just what the youngest Tanner sister is up to now that everyone’s older, according to a new report. Find out their career here!
It seems there won’t be much of a focus on Michelle’s storyline, but there will be a mention that she’s creating a fashion empire in New York City, according to Us Weekly. It’s a nice little ode to what the Olsen twins are up to in real life — they’ve made millions off their multiple fashion lines, and have decided to focus their careers strictly on that, rather than acting.
Fuller House will tell the story of DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber), as they come together to help a recently-widowed DJ raise her kids (sound familiar??) Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin and John Stamos are all returning for the 13-episode series, which will premiere at an unknown date in 2016.
Although it’s always been made pretty clear that MK & A wouldn’t be reviving their acting careers for the show, fans were still holding out hope — that is, until Lori confirmed that they wouldn’t be in the first season at all. Yup, not even for a quick cameo! Sigh. Filming has already wrapped, too, so she knows for a fact. Unless…maybe producers are pulling a fast one on the entire cast?!
Don’t worry, though…we’ll be getting two new fresh faces on the show, and the news definitely doesn’t disappoint! Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy — who’ve found fame as pro dancers on Dancing With The Stars — will be making an appearance as love interests for Stephanie and DJ, respectively. “It’s really cute,” Us Weekly reported. “Maks and Val play dancers and dance with sisters DJ and Stephanie in a club.” We can’t wait, and in the meantime, you can check out old episodes of Full House RIGHT HERE.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of the show’s reasoning for Michelle Tanner’s absence? Is it believable?
