After months of rumors, Netflix confirmed on Tuesday that it had ordered 13 episodes of Fuller House, a follow-up to Full House starring some of the original cast.
Candace Cameron-Bure, Andrea Barber, and Jodie Sweetin are on board. The story centers on their characters. John Stamos is producing and has agreed to guest star, but nobody knows the extent of his on-screen participation.
Of course, the names left out of this are Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Lori Loughlin. Deadline reported that the bunch were still in talks about appearing on the show, which will debut some time in 2016.
Now, Lori Loughlin has provided a little more context and she doesn’t seem too optimistic – at least when it comes to a full Full House reunion.
“They made deals with half the cast, but not the other half. I don’t have a deal, Dave doesn’t have a deal, Bob, we’re all in negotiations. I think we would all like to come back, if the powers that be are fair to all of us,” Loughlin told Access Hollywood. “We want to be there, we want to come back. It’s up to them.”
Loughlin seems particularly doubtful of the Olsen twins’ participation, saying it doesn’t matter how much money they’re offered.
“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. I’m sure they’re talking to them. I don’t know what’s going on there. Everyone would love it [if they came back], it would be really nice,” she said.
Neither Saget nor the Olsen twins have made any public comments about the new show. Dave Coulier tweeted out his excitement for the girls who are officially part of it:
So happy for my "Fuller House" girls! I love you all! I hope Mr. Potato Head's coming back too.… https://t.co/umrccPrkDe

The show will focus on D.J Tanner (now D.J. Tanner-Fuller) – a recently widowed pregnant mother of three. Tanner-Fuller moves in with her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy Gibbler. Stamos has called the project a “labor of love” that they’ve been working on for years.
