No Olsen twins in Fuller House


Former Full House stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen twins will not be appearing in the Fuller House spin-off coming to Netflix -at least not in the first season.

The twins appeared in the original series in joint role as Michelle Tanner from 1987 – 1995.

Actress Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis) confirmed to The Huffington Post that the season is “wrapped and they didn’t come in.”

In October, John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis) said that the twins were “in a different phase in their life,” suggesting that they probably wouldn’t accept any speculated last-minute offer to make a cameo.

Loughlin also said a cameo for any future episodes could be unlikely as well, saying, “No, I don’t think they’re going to make a cameo. They didn’t this season.”

The spinoff that will mostly feature Candace Cameron (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibler), with other cameos.

“So, for the very first episode we were all there … then we came on throughout the season and we each did different episodes on our own,” Loughlin explained. “I did one episode where it was just me and the girls … we were all in the first one, and then sprinkled out through the rest of the season.”


  1. There’s no reason why both of them should have reappeared anyway. Due to child labour laws, and the relative impatience of young children, there was a practical reason for the casting of twins; but for the reboot, only one of the twins would have sufficed.

  2. Gee they like quite scary in that pic. Someone should remind the girls that it was the show that gave them fame in the first place. But I guess at the “phase of life” they’re in, they probaby won’t listen.

    • That’s a strange comment… If the staff from your first job all decided to work again in that same job and you didn’t want to, should you feel forced into doing so just because it gave you your first “break” into employment?
