Full House remains one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time, as the show ran for 8 seasons from 1987 to 1995. The spinoff to the main series titled Fuller House aired in 2016 and ended last year.
Despite its ending, fans are still talking about the show – more specifically the absence of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in their role of Michelle Tanner.
While speaking on Watch What Happens Live, John Stamos, who reprised his role of Uncle Jesse on the show, revealed what the cast of the show thought regarding the absence of the Olsen twins from the reboot.
Stamos revealed that the cast was disappointed at the absence of the Olsen twins but they understood.
“I remember Lori [Loughlin] saying to me, ‘They won two or three CFDA [Fashion] Awards.’ That’s like winning two or three Oscars. If you won three Oscars, would you come back and do this? I was like, ‘Eh, maybe not.’”
According to PEOPLE, Mary-Kate and Ashley were not going to appear on the reboot anyway, as revealed by Fuller House producer Bob Boyett.
“Ashley said, ‘I have not been in front of a camera since I was 17, and I don’t feel comfortable acting.’ Mary-Kate said, It would have to be me because Ash doesn’t want to do it. But the timing is so bad for us.”
Fuller House went on to have good success as it ran for five seasons. Regardless, it is truly a shame the Olsen twins were not around for the ride.
