Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not reprise their shared role of Michelle Tanner in “Fuller House,” the upcoming Netflix series follow-up/revival of the beloved ABC sitcom “Full House”.
Executive producer Robert L. Boyett said 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.”
Although much of the original cast is set to return, the Olsen twins’ participation had long been in question. The twins got their start on the series as kids, and turned their fame into an empire of direct-to-video movies and specials with more recent endeavours involving fashion lines.
The last acting job from either was Mary-Kate Olsen’s turn in 2011’s “Beastly”.
