Fuller House is set for a February premiere on Netflix, and the cast is talking a bit more about the revival of Full House in interviews. John Stamos spoke about Fuller House in an interview on the Howard Stern show, and he cleared things up surrounding the no-show of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Spoilers released for the revival and shared by TV Series Finale last month revealed that a scene during the revival will show characters calling Michelle in New York with a prank call. Michelle Tanner moved there, and she is working on building her fashion empire.
Fans will not see Michelle during this call though, and it is not likely fans will ever see Michelle pop up on Fuller House.
John Stamos revealed the real story about Mary-Kate and Ashley not coming to the series. According to Jezebel, he said:
“I did call and talked to Mary-Kate and explained what the show is going to be and told them I’d love for them to be on there, and they decided not to, which I respect… They were very, very sweet. They seemed very into it. They just were afraid of acting. They don’t consider themselves actresses. I said maybe you guys will just be in New York and we’ll do a phone call or something and they were like, ‘Let us think about it,’ and it just wasn’t for them so…”
John Stamos also mentioned during the interview that the producers wanted to approach the youngest Olsen, Elizabeth Olsen, to appear on the series. This happened during another recent interview, according to E! Online. He said:
“We actually went to—I don’t think this has been talked about…I didn’t do it, I think Jeff Franklin did—I said, ‘Call the sister [Elizabeth Olsen]. Ask her’…We talked to her agent and her agent was like, ‘Come on she’s not going to do that,’ but we did call her agent.”
Would you have wanted to see Michelle Tanner on the revival of Full House? Do you plan to watch Fuller House? Tell us what you think.
Frankly, I’m disappointed that after being a loyal fan of Full House, watching it from the beginning until the last episode…with my children, as they grew up (it was a very good family show that we could watch together)…I’ve also enjoyed watching the reruns…Now, to have to pay for it on a pay per view network or not be able to watch it at all. I’d love to watch the new show but can’t afford it, as I’m on a limited income. Hopefully, you’ll play the reruns on Antenna TV…that would be the nice thing to do. Just had to… Read more »
With or without them I’m anxious but more curious to see the show. If it’s as good as before, I’ll watch. Also, I too am wondering if Jessie and Rebecca’s twins Alex and Nicky will be on it. My daughter enjoys watching Full House which is way before her time and now she’s looking forward to Fuller House.
Let me rephrase my comment..I left out a word..I think the Olsen girls think they are too good to be on the show.
I don’t think the Olsen girls are the only thing that made Full House the show it was. Yes, they were cute, but so were the other girls. Jessie and Joey were a lot of fun. Will the twin boys be on it? It would be nice to see them grown up. I’m looking forward to the show, without the Olsen girls. Quite frankly, I think they are too good for the show, even though it was the show that made them famous. Some people just don’t like to go back to their roots.
I wouldn’t say they are “afraid of acting”. They have both appeared in other shows/movies. Especially Mary-Kate. I just don’t think they wanted to be part of the show anymore……
And why in the world would they think Elizabeth Olsen would be interested?
