Lori Loughlin, probably best known for her role as ‘Aunt Becky’ on the hit show Full House, is in talks about appearing on the show’s Netflix spinoff, Fuller House. It’s uncertain thus far, however, as to which way she’ll go.
Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber are set to reprise their Full House roles as D.J. Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, and Kimmy Gibbler on Fuller House. John Stamos, who played ‘Uncle Jesse’ on the show, serves as producer of the upcoming spinoff, and has said he will also make guest appearances reprising his original role.
Lori Loughlin, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and the Olsen twins–Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen–have yet to commit or turn down their guest roles.
Lori Loughlin told Access Hollywood recently that she would love to reprise her role as ‘Aunt Becky,’ but is holding out for a ‘fair deal.’

“They made deals with half the cast, but not the other half,” she said. “I think we would all like to come back, if the powers that be are fair to all of us.”
As for the role of Michelle Tanner–shared on Full House by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen–Lori Loughlin says she’s not sure if they want to return.
“It doesn’t matter how much money they get paid, they don’t care. I honestly don’t know if they want to do it,” she said. “I’m sure they’re talking to them. I don’t know what’s going on there.”
Netflix announced the spinoff, Fuller House, on Monday night. Later that same night, John Stamos appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and shared the good news as well.
