Your 90s heart probably went into overdrive when you heard the news that a Full House spinoff, Fuller House, would hit Netflix in the next year. It seemed like all of your favorite characters were coming back some 20 years later… Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), Joey (Dave Coulier), D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) would all return to the small screen just for you. But one character was missing. Would the youngest Tanner girl, Michelle (Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen), appear on the Netflix series?
According to Bob Saget (who played Danny Tanner, the girls’ father), that would be a no. Saget confirmed this at the Los Angeles premiere of Entourage earlier this week. He commented that the twins “should do whatever they want to do” and “be happy.” That sounds like a classic, Danny Tanner pep talk to us.
Even though Michelle won’t appear on the new series, don’t despair. We have nothing but high hopes and good expectations for Fuller House.
