Will they or won't they return? That's the big question facing Fuller House and the Olsen Twins as production gets underway on the Full House reunion series for Netflix. As of now, every main cast member is set to appear in some capacity, except for Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen. Previously, the two actresses who played Michelle Tanner hinted that they wanted nothing to do with the new sitcom, which is being shot in front of a live audience. But those reports were exaggerated. Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos had this to say about the impending 13 episode run.
"[Mary-Kate and Ashley] are teetering on whether or not they'll be around."
Executive producer Robert L. Boyett announced back in May that the pair would not be reprising their shared iconic role. He called the sisters 'part of the family' and reiterated that the original show still means a lot to them. Boyett went onto say he supports their decision, and their choice to instead focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. It has never been discussed exactly how they will come back, though, as the Twins shared the same character, which means only one of them will be appearing at a time. Unless they bring in Michelle's Greek cousin Melina.
The rest of the original cast is returning, though, and Ted Sarandos says that the actors have fallen right back into their roles. Fuller House, which has a newly single DJ Tanner and her kids moving in with her sister and best friend, is very much in the spirit of the original Full House. And he wants everyone to know that it is a modern take on that sitcom with a lot of the same elements in place. One of those elements is the very hip and cool Uncle Jesse. The first live taping happened this past week, and John Stamos has shared a first look photo as his iconic sideburns come back into place.
We also get to see a reunion photo as John Stamos gathers with Dave Coulier, Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin. Candace Cameron Bure also got in on the fun, posting a photo just moments before the series' first live taping which took place this past Saturday evening. In a second photo, we get to see Dj coming face to face with Uncle Jesse for the first time in over 20 years! What happens during this on-screen reunion is anyone's guess, but we'll likely see more as shooting continues on these 13 episodes.
While everyone waits to hear if The Olsen Twins are coming back, another set of twins has already confirmed their participation. Yes, Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit, who played Nicky and Alex Katsopolis, sons of Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky, are all grown up and ready to play with the big boys! Blake shared a photo of his script, indicated that the pair will appear in the first first episode when the show debuts on Netflix in 2016. Take a look as everyone gets back together and the first episode of Fuller House goes off without a hitch! Who's excited now?
