Lori Loughlin is presently in talks about returning to the upcoming Full House spinoff–Fuller House–on a guest starring basis. Her former costars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber are the new show’s main characters, reprising their Full House roles as D.J. Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, and Kimmy Gibbler, respectively.
During a recent interview with Access Hollywood , Lori Loughlin said she would love to reprise her role as ‘Aunt Becky,’ but is holding out for what she calls 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.”
John Stamos, who is producing the show for Netflix, is reprising his ‘Uncle Jesse’ role–husband of Lori Loughlin’s character–on a recurring basis. Fans would no doubt love to see both Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky back on the show. Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and the Olsen twins–Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen–are also in talks for guest roles.

Lori Loughlin sounded a bit uncertain about the return of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who together played the role of Michelle Tanner.
“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.”
The Full House spinoff was formally announced by Netflix on Monday evening. Later that same night, John Stamos announced the upcoming Fuller House while he was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
