Get ready to be even more excited about Fuller House. According to Jodie Sweetin, who will reprise her iconic role as middle Tanner daughter, Stephanie, filming for the Netflix spinoff will begin next month. Sweetin also gives us another sweet tidbit about the new series – youngest sister Michelle (Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen) will still have a role, even though the twins won’t be on the show.
According to Sweetin, “The Michelle character is still going to have a presence.” Thank goodness. Imagine how weird it would be if the Tanners suddenly forgot they had a third daughter. We’d have another “Chuck from Happy Days” incident on our hands. For those of you who don’t know, Chuck was the elusive eldest brother on the long-running nostalgic sitcom who went up the stairs with his basketball… and never came back down.
So, we’re pretty glad that’s not going to happen to the awesomeness that is Michelle.
We wish Sweetin an awesome rest of the summer with her two daughters, Beatrix and Zoie. Also, we wish the cast of Fuller House good luck in this new endeavor.
