The twin fashion designers/billionaires found out about Netflix's 13-episode Full House spin-off at the same time as you.
According to Women's Wear Daily the twin sisters, who began their career on the original sitcom as infants, were not brought into the discussions that led to Fuller House.
"We just found out about it today," said Mary-Kate, during an interview late Tuesday. "I guess we're going to talk to the creators and see what's happening." The sisters said they had no knowledge of the series prior to Stamos spilling the news to Kimmel. "I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn't even talk about it," said Ashley. "I'm shocked I haven't heard from John [Stamos]," said Mary-Kate. They didn't rule out participation, but they might check in with their former TV dad first. "I'm going to call [Saget] and get his perspective," said Ashley.
It seems super odd that the catch phrase dispenser that was Michelle Tanner was not included in the effort to bring lame television back to nostalgic viewers.
TV Line has the exclusive, saying this:
According to sources, Netflix is thisclose to ordering Fuller House, a 13-episode multi-cam continuation of Full House to star Candace Cameron Bure as D.J. and Andrea Barber as her BFF Kimmy.
Fellow Full House vets John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are being eyed to make guest appearances, with Stamos having a producer role, as well. The project is being shepherded by the original show's creator, Jeff Franklin, who will exec-produce alongside Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett (both of whom also EP'd the original).
Will original television ever make a come back?
As reported by TV Guide:
Warner Bros. TV is mulling a new take on Full House, with some of the original cast intact…Leading the charge is John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) — who has an ownership stake in the show, which gives him good reason to champion the new series. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin (who's writing the new version) are actively involved. Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are on board, while Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are also involved in some way.
