The Olsen twins made news recently when they claimed they just found out about the Netflix reboot of Full House. Fuller House is set to air on Netflix next year in a premiere season featuring 13 episodes. The show will star Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber in their Full House roles as D.J. Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, and Kimmy Gibbler. John Stamos will reprise his role as Uncle Jesse on a recurring basis. He is also one of the show’s producers.
When word broke last week about Fuller House, it was said that actors Lori Loughlin, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and the Olsen twins were in talks about whether or not they would reprise their roles on a recurring basis as well. Shortly thereafter, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen claimed they didn’t even know the spinoff was happening.
“We just found out about it…I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening…I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos],” Mary-Kate Olsen said.
This clearly raised the ire of John Stamos, who spoke out via Twitter.

Does this indicate there’s been some trouble among old Full House cast mates?

Lori Loughlin indicated recently that perhaps some of the show’s actors weren’t offered deals quite as lucrative as those Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber received. But she also admitted money certainly isn’t an issue for the Olsen twins.
“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,” Loughlin–who played Aunt Becky, wife of John Stamos’s character Uncle Jesse–said during an interview with Access Hollywood.
What do you suppose the real deal is with the Olsen twins? Have they become way too big for their Michelle Tanner britches?

And are you shocked to see ‘nice guy’ John Stamos call ‘bullsh*t’ on the fact that they said they knew nothing about the spinoff or talks of reprisal deals?
That said, what do you suppose the chances are that the Olsen twins will appear on Fuller House? And even if they did, how would they handle the two girls–one role situation?
