Just as we expected, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen will NOT be returning to play the beloved Michelle Tanner in Netflix’s Full House revival, Fuller House.
To be honest, the girls don’t even look like each other anymore so having them take turns playing the same girl would be awkward.
“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,” executive producer Robert L. Boyett said in a statement. “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 towards Fuller House.”
The new incarnation will star original cast members Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), her on-screen younger sister, Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber, who played her best friend, Kimmy Gibbler. John Stamos will produce and reprise his role as Uncle Jesse in a guest role. Dave Coulier will also return as Uncle Joey. Talks are underway to bring back fellow original stars Bob Sagetand Lori Loughlin.
The Olsen Twins haven’t acted in years — plus they’re still making millions from the original series. If we were them, we probably wouldn’t return either.
