Los Angeles, Nov 27 (IANS) Actresses-designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not act in “Fuller House”, a sequel to the popular sitcom “Full House” that featured the twins.
Lori Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on the sitcoms, shared that the filming on “Fuller House” has wrapped and the Olsens “didn’t come in”, as many suspected would be the case, reports eonline.com.
When it was announced that “Fuller House”, which stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, was in the works with a reunion of the original cast planned, all eyes went to the Olsen twins.
The fashion designers said they hadn’t heard about the project and after some back and forth with John Stamos (who plays Uncle Jesse on the shows and an executive producer on the new series), a firm statement was made by producers.
But then in July, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos seemed to hint the Olsen twins could be swayed.
The cast includes Louglin, Stamos, Barber, Cameron Bure, Bob Saget, Scott Weinger, Dave Coulier, and Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit.
What about future episodes?
“No, I don’t think they’re going to make a cameo. They didn’t this season,” said Loughlin.
