Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Won’t Be Joining Fuller House
Sadly, the Olsen twins are saying “You don’t got it, dude!” to Fuller House. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who together made up Full House’s Michelle Tanner, the adorable baby of the family, will not be reprising their role for the Netflix revival. What a major bummer.
The Olsens themselves haven’t released a statement about their thumbs-down to the series, but executive producer Robert L. Boyett has. “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,” he said. “I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors.”
Everyone’s dream uncle, John Stamos, took to Twitter to share his feelings on Mary-Kate and Ashley skipping the reunion.
I understand they're in a different place and I wish them the best. I promise you will not be dissapointed with our reunion and spin off!!John Stamos (@JohnStamos) May 23, 2015
While one tweet did just say “heartbroken,” the other showed real respect for the twins decision, saying “I understand they're in a different place and I wish them the best.”
Uncle Jesse, who will be producing the show’s first season, also wrote a longer reaction on Facebook. Part of the post spoke for Fuller House’s entire cast (which includes original members Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Dave Coulier), reading, “We all just want to have fun - do it in a classy way on Netflix and have a good time- sad that a few don't share the rest of the cast's opinion - i can only wish them the best.”
Although it all may just be a PR game, it’s great to see that there may still be good vibes between the Olsens and the Fuller House team. That means a door is still open for them to return for season two. We can only hope, right?
