The Full House spinoff will be missing two key actresses and one key character.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won't be back as Michelle Tanner when Fuller House debuts on Netflix, according to Collider (via THR), even though they seemed interested in the idea a while back (even though nobody told them about it).
The Fuller House producers released a statement that seems to confirm the series will be missing its key deliverer of cute one-liners.
“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…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."
The new series will focus on original cast members Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber, who played Kimmy Gibbler. DJ will have two sons, a teenaged "ladies man" musician named Jesse Daniel who takes after Great Uncle Jesse (and, we're assuming, has great hair) and 6 to 7-year-old Max.
Kimmy Gibler has a daughter named Ramona, who according to her character bio is a bi-racial teen who "fully embraces her Latina heritage, and considers living with the “white-bread Tanners” to be “totally lame.”
So far Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) and Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier) are the only other original cast members to sign on.
