Olsen Twins Fuller House

Fuller House: Olsen Twins 'Teetering' on Deal to Join Netflix Revival

Reports that the Olsen Twins want nothing to do with Netflix’s forthcoming Full House revival have been greatly exaggerated.

The streaming giant’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, revealed Tuesday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour that Mary-Kate and Ashley “are teetering on whether or not they’ll be around” for the 13-episode Fuller House.

Back in May, the series’ executive producer, Robert L. Boyett, announced that the pair would not be reprising their shared role as Michelle Tanner.

“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,” Boyett said in a statement at the time. “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.”

Sarandos, meanwhile, told reporters that the remaining cast members (including original stars John Stamos and Bob Saget) “have fallen right back into their roles. It’s very much in the same spirit [of the original], but it’s a modern take on Full House.”

    Not gonna get my hopes up. Till its official.

  2. Drew says:

    So would this be Michelle and her cousin who looked like her? Because they can’t both play the same character anymore, can they? This isn’t “Roseanne”.

  3. Scott says:

    just need one of them and neither looks as cute after all those teen movies they did

  4. Lizo says:

    They’re going to do it. They love their fans. I know I probably won’t watch unless they’re involved. Michelle wasn’t my favourite, but the Olsen twins were a massive part of my childhood.

  5. GraceM says:

    About time. It would be weird not to have Michelle back when the rest of he original cast is there.

  6. brandi says:

    I’ll be watching either way.

  7. Erika says:

    I don’t believe it :(

  8. DL says:

    Would be nice at least to have one of them appear as Michelle on a Skype call after a busy day working at an NY fashion mag or something. :-P

  9. Brynna G says:

    So hope it happens! Full House was my fave show as a kid, and I loved the twins because of it! I used to watch all their videos etc. Wouldn’t be the same without them!

  10. Sheila says:

    I know that twins look less similar as they age, but I’d never guess those two were twins.

  11. Charles says:

    Why not ask Liz Olsen to reprise the roll?!

  12. But…don’t we only need ONE of the twins to appear on the show…lol

  13. dman6015 says:

    They only need one of them, especially since they’re no longer interchangeable. They should just get their sister, Elizabeth. Much better actress.

  14. chris says:

    get Liz Olsen. Olsen twins don’t act anymore.

  15. Mero says:

    Why don’t they get their younger sister to play Michele.

  16. I dont think the show will do good without the olsen twins. I watch full house every night.and michelle makes the show.u need to find a way to get them to come on

  17. Abel Jaimes says:
