Fuller House is set to air via Netflix starting in February, and fans are still a bit dismayed that Michelle Tanner–played in the original Full House by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen–won’t even make a cameo in the reboot.
A new report, however, says all is not lost–at least not yet.
“There is still a chance we will see the Olsen twins on the show in the future and in a future season,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com.
It seems the Olsen twins haven’t acted in a long time, and while that is certainly part of their concern, they also don’t want to return to acting if the series winds up being bad.

“The girls are going to wait and see it and see how it is accepted before they move forward with it,” the source adds. “They both understand that there is a lot of excitement surrounding it but they keep asking the question, ‘What if it is bad?’ They are in a wait and see mode right now but there is certainly a chance they may show up in the future based on its success.”
That said, if Fuller House is the massive hit everyone expects it to be, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen might make a cameo appearance or guest star in the second season–if Netflix orders a second season of the show.

In the meantime, any talk of Michelle Tanner in Fuller House–at least for the first season–will be a case of art imitating life. Michelle is off in New York, working on a career in fashion.
Fans are beyond excited to see Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber reprise their Full House roles, and fan favorites like Lori Loughlin, John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier make guest appearances.
Does Fuller House need Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen? Do you think the Full House reboot can be a big hit–even without them?
