Cut It Out: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Aren’t Joining Fuller House After All.

The twin sisters became known for playing Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in the original ABC sitcom centered on the recently widowed Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) and his family and friends who helped him raise his kids.We didn’t expect Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to appear in the new “Full House” reboot, and it turns out the 28-year-old fashion designers will not reprise their shared role as Michelle Tanner, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “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.

When the long-rumored “Full House” reboot was confirmed by Netflix in April, fans of the original ‘90s show wondered: Just how full, would the “Fuller House” be? It’s not going to be a true Tanner family reunion on Fuller House because Michelle Tanner, you know, and , are officially not returning to the fold for Netflix’s new series. 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. Stars like John Stamos and Candace Cameron Bure were the first to confirm they would return for the reboot, along with Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber.

Stamos later tweeted that he and Mary-Kate has smoothed things out after having a “sweet talk,” but he apparently wasn’t able to sweet-talk the twins into appearing on the show. Only a few days after the announcement in April, the two said they were unaware of the planned reboot, which provoked Stamos to tweet that their statement was “bullsh–.” The tweet has since been deleted. I appreciate their support and good wishes toward ‘Fuller House.’” In April, fellow “Full House” alum John Stamos confirmed the news of follow-up series.

When the twins were asked about the Netflix series by Women’s Wear Daily in late April, they claimed they hadn’t been aware it was happening. (Do they live under a rock?!) “We just found out about it today,” Mary-Kate said on April 21. “I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening. … Bure, for her part, was less optimistic that her former costars would return. “It would be great if one of them came back,” she told Us Weekly exclusively last month, “but I’m not holding my breath.” Ashley’s last real role was in 2004’s “New York Minute” (though she did appear in a music video in 2013) and Mary-Kate hasn’t acted since 2011’s “Beastly.” Of her lack of on-camera appearances Ashley explained, “It doesn’t mean I’m not interested in Hollywood. Tanner-Fuller—see what they did there?—a recently widowed mother who invites her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) to move in with her and help her raise her boys. Other returning cast members include Dave Coulier, Andrea Barber and Jodie Sweetin. “Fuller House” is from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix.

When the show was announced, just Stamos, Barber, Cameron Bure and Sweetin were signed to appear, with Netflix noting Bob Saget, the Olsen twins, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin were still in talks to appear. Loughlin took her quest for a proper deal to the press where she spoke openly about her desires. “I think we would all like to come back if the powers that be are fair to all of us,” Loughlin said. “Favored nations would be fair…We want to be there, we want to come back, it’s up to them.”
