Mary-Kate and Ashley Oslen were reportedly not joining the “Full House” spin-off, despite many of the original cast members have signed on, but Netflix boss reveals that the Olsen Twins are not closing door on ‘Fuller House’ return.
Earlier this year, executive producer Robert L. Boyett addressed the Olsen twins absence from the upcoming series in a statement. “Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of ‘Fuller House’, I know how much ‘Full House’ has meant to them and they are still very much considered family. It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards ‘Fuller House’.”
Ted Sarandos, head of content acquisition for Netflix, hinted at the Olsen twins possible involvement during the 2015 Summer TCA press tour. He said in a room full of reporters on Tuesday morning, July 28 in Beverly Hills: “The Olsen twins are teetering on whether or not they’ll be around. We’ve been able to reassemble all of the cast.”
Sarandos also promised that the spin-off “is very much in the spirit of the original. At the taping of the [first] episode this past week, when the cast shows up on stage the audience reacts immediately and the actors have fallen right back into the roles. It’s very much in the same spirit but with a modern take on ‘Full House’.”
Bob Saget, John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier and Scott Weinger are also on board to reprise their respective roles, while Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit will return as twin brothers Nicky and Alex.
Consisting of 12 episodes, the new sitcom will be preceded by a one-hour reunion.
