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

Have mercy! 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?When Uncle Jesse, D.J., Kimmy Gibbler and the gang return with Fuller House on Netflix, there will be one conspicuously absent member of the family: Michelle. 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. Both twins played it coy saying “We just found out about it today” back in April after Stamos went public with the details, and he immediately said, “I call bullshit,” as ABC News reported.

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. Stamos, who is also producing the show, put the Olsen twins on blast after the two child stars claimed they hadn’t been made aware of the show’s return. “I call bulls—t,” Stamos tweeted and then deleted after the Elizabeth & James designers said he forgot to tell them.

Neither of them has done any acting in years (Ashley had an uncredited role in 2010’s I’m Still Here and Mary-Kate last performed in 2011’s Beastly), and one can guess that the paycheck for this Netflix series isn’t enough to get them out of bed or distract them from their fashion lines and retail empire. 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. 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.” Stephanie, now an aspiring musician, and single mother Kimmy — along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter, Ramona — all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys — the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and her soon-to-arrive baby. Perhaps there’ll just be a picture on the mantle of grown-up Michelle, clutching a Starbucks and wearing something boho chic on the streets of Manhattan, where she’s now a successful retail entrepreneur and fashion icon.
