The Olsen twins will not return as Michelle Tanner for the Full House revival.
The revival, called Fuller House, will be released on Netflix. Fans are disappointed to hear that one of their favorite Tanner family members will not reappear.
“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,” stated executive producer Robert L. Boyett.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the revival will star original cast members Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber, who played D.J.’s best friend, Kimmy Gibbler. John Stamos will produce and return to his role as Uncle Jesse in a guest role. Dave Coulier is returning as Uncle Joey. There are rumors circling as to whether or not Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin will return for the revival.
Fuller House will be released on Netflix in 2016. D.J. will be seen as an employed vet, pregnant and also recently widowed. She is still living in San Francisco. Her younger sister, Stephanie, is an aspiring musician. Kimmy is a single mother of her teenage daughter Ramona. Both Stephanie and Kimmy move in with D.J. to help her manage her two boys, one 12-year-old and one 7-year-old. D.J. will need all the help she can get with another baby on the way.
The revival comedy hails from Warner Horizon Television, Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions. Creator Jeff Franklin is returning to oversee Fuller House alongside executive producers Boyett and Thomas L. Miller.
Despite the fact that the revival will not have Michelle Tanner, Fuller House is expected to please the original Full House fans.
