Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen will not be joining the cast of Netflix's 'Fuller House', according to reports.
The twin sisters became famous for playing Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in the original ABC sitcom centered on Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) and his family who helped him raise his kids.
Apparently, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen will concentrate on their current careers.
“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,” said series executive producer Robert L. Boyett. “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 toward ‘Fuller House.'”
The new series will focus on Candace Cameron Bure's character D.J. The eldest of the three daughters in the original series, D.J. is now widowed and in need of help when it comes to raising her kids. Other cast members returning include Dave Coulier, Andrea Barber and Jodie Sweetin.
