Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been confirmed as not returning for the Netflix reboot.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may have decided they wont be moving to John Stamos’ ‘Fuller House’ on Netflix, but that doesn't mean Michelle Tanner will be forgotten. Speaking to US Weekly, Jodie Sweetin, who played older sister Stephanie on the original series, said that Michelle Tanner will "still have a presence" on the show.
Mary-Kate and Ashley are not returning for ‘Fuller House’.
"The Michelle character is still going to have a presence. It's not like were not talking about her," Sweetin said. ”I love and support [Mary-Kate and Ashley], and I think we're going to be just fine.” Sweetin also revealed that filming on the new series was set to begin next month.
"We first started talking about this in like 2007, 2008 about trying to do some sort of a spinoff and kind of bringing the characters back. This has been a long time in the making," she added.
"I had kind of given up for periods of time where I'm like, 'It's not going happen!' But we pitched it to Netflix and they were so excited about it.”
The now 33 year old added that the new show will have a more adult edge, particularly with her character Stephanie. "I think that Stephanie is going to be a really interesting, complex, deep character," Sweetin revealed.
Also returning for the reboot are original ‘Full House’ stars Bob Saget, John Stamos, Candace Cameron Bure, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier and Andrea Barber. The show will also be overseen by original creator Jeff Franklin alongside executive producers Robert L. Boyett and Thomas L. Miller.
