Full House fans were probably pretty upset to find out that one familiar face wasn't in the Netflix reboot Fuller House.
Unfortunately, the character Michelle Tanner, was not featured in the rebooted series mainly due to the fact that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (who shared the role) have moved on to the fashion business and away from acting. If fans were disappointed in this, they weren't the only ones; Fuller House creator Jeff Franklin admitted that he wanted the Olsen twins to be part of it even if it wasn't for the entire run of the series.
"That was a giant bummer, but their participation was never a precondition for doing that show," Franklin told Vulture in Friday's report. "I hoped that they would come back and do one episode, but I didn't think that they were going to be regulars."
With the sisters not being there, the show still managed to work things out as it centers on D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy living together with other kids, giving a familiar concept to how the original series was created. Franklin said that he was a bit hesitant about keeping the same storyline, but eventually decided it was for the best.
"Would people think, 'How lazy or uncreative could you be?'" the creator recalled. "I wanted to figure out another way to get all of these people in the same house living together. We explored a bunch of different options but in the end it just felt like the Tanner curse was the way to go."
Fuller House Season 1 is currently available to watch on Netflix.
