As it turns out, the upcoming Full House spinoff won't exactly include a FULL house.
Following weeks of questions over whether or not Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will reprise their role as Michelle on the Netflix series, executive producer Robert L. Boyett revealed the answer yesterday to The Hollywood Reporter:
No, they will not.
Boyett said he still considers the Olsen Twins - who claimed last month they knew nothing about the Full House reboot until after it was announced - to be "family."
But he respects their decision to focus on "various business endeavors" over appearing on Fuller House.
John Stamos feels the same way, yet is very sad over this development.
The actor will serve as a producer on the series, while appearing occasionally as Uncle Jesse.
After learning the Olsens were officially out, he Tweeted in response:
"#heartbroken. I understand they’re in a different place and I wish them the best. I promise you will not be dissapointed with our reunion and spin off!!"
Fuller House will center on Candace Cameron Bure as an adult version of DJ Tanner, left to raise her children with her sister and her best friend after her husband passes away.
Its first season will be comprised of 13 episodes on Netflix.
"This is not a money gig for any of us – quite the opposite – we want to give the fans what they deserve for supporting us for so many years,” Stamos added on Facebook, sounding a tad bitter toward the famous twins.
“We all just want to have fun – do it in a classy way on netflix and have a good time. Sad that a few don’t share the rest of the cast’s opinion – I can only wish them the best."
A previous report claimed that the Full House cast hates The Olsen Twins.
