Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Break Silence on Full House Reboot, Uncertain on Return

by at .  Updated at .

The internet has been buzzing since Netflix confirmed the long-rumored Full House spinoff, Fuller House, is actually happening.

As reports have been coming out that Lori Loughlin wants a spot on Fuller House, fans have been wondering Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will sign on too.

But they have been tight lipped until now.

The twins, who shared the role of the adorable Michelle Tanner, finally broke their silence about the Full House Reboot.

The stars, now 28-years-old, aren't sure they want anything to do with it.

"We just found out about it today," Mary-Kate told WWD. "I guess we're going to talk to the creators and see what's happening.”

This raises an eyebrow though.  They have only recently found out about it???

John Stamos blabbered all over Jimmy Kimmel’s show that a one-hour special was in the works, as well as a 12-episode series.

Stamos even stated Cadence Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), and Jodie Sweeting (Stephanie Tanner) have already signed on.

Even if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on Full House never comes to fruition, there are other Tanner family alumni who could be returning:

Ashley stated, “I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn’t even talk about it. I'm going to call [Saget] and get his perspective."

The twins made their debut on the show at only 9-months-old.  They have not committed to the new show, and they haven’t acted since 2011.

No one seems to be confident the Olsens will return though.

"I don't know about the twins, but it would be great if one of them came back... I'm not holding my breath," Cameron Bure told Us Weekly. 

"I'm not sure if they're going to do it, but we really only need one.”

In fact, they are so uncertain that writers haven’t worked Michelle Tanner into the Netflix sitcom yet.

The original show had a long, eight year run on ABC and wrapped up in May 1995.

Cameron Bure explained plot of the new show:

"The premise is that D.J. — she was married, she's widowed now — but she has two boys that are 12 and 7. She’s pregnant with her third [and] her husband passed away, just like the original show — the mom passed away." 

She added, “So she needs help so she asks her sister and her best friend, Kimmy and Stephanie, to come help her raise her boys." 

Cameron seems to be more enthusiastic than the Olsen twins.  

"[I'm] extremely excited,” she stated. “This is something we've all been working on for quite a while. I know the fans really want it. So we're excited to give them a great new show."
