The Olsen twins are definitely returning to TV, but will it be on the Full House reboot?
Unfortunately, the Olsen twins have yet to complete negotiations with Netflix for the new reboot of Full House, to be called Fuller House.
However, it looks like Nickelodeon has acquired the rights to much of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s content library. The network already airs Full House reruns on Nick at Nite, but now they will also air the Olsen twins’ other sitcoms as well as many of their movie titles, according to a press release.
As for Fuller House, the Olsen twins finally spoke out about the new show that will follow D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) as she raises her three children with her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber).

“We just found out about it today,” Mary-Kate told Women’s Wear Daily on Tuesday. “I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening.”

Until word comes that the Olsen twins sealed a deal with Netflix, looks like all fans will get is syndicated shows of the girls.
“Nickelodeon has been at the forefront of kids entertainment for decades. We believe this is the perfect home for our library,” Mary-Kate said in a statement.
Stay tuned for more news on whether the Olsen twins will return to Fuller House.
