'Full House' Revival News: Mary Kate & Ashley Olson Won't Be Returning For 'Fuller House' Remake, They Want To Focus On Their Business [VIDEO]
It looks like the remake of the 90s favorite sitcom, Full House, will be moving forward without the fan-favorite Michelle Tanner.
On Friday, The Hollywood Reporter shared a statement from Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen where they addressed the speculation on whether they would return to the upcoming Netflix series.
It turns out the two will not reprise their role on the beloved ABC sitcom.
"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."
Though they will not be returning, the new cast members will include: 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 Saget and Lori Loughlin.
The question on whether the twins tars would return to the set has long been in question. The two were only nine months old when they got their start in acting on the show. They quickly became huge childstars and had a show of their own before it morphed into movies and specials.
