Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: Officially Out of Fuller House

at . Comments

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are officially out of the Full House reboot.

After Netflix announced its plans to release a 13-episode season of Fuller House - which will center on Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, all living together as grown-up characters following the death of the former's husband - fans started to wonder about the status of the aforementioned twins.

And now executive producer Robert L. Boyett has provided an answer.

"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,” Boyett said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

“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."

John Stamos is also on board as a producer of the spinoff and is expected to guest star occasionally as Uncle Jesse.

Dave Coulier will also return as Uncle Joey, while negotiations are under way to bring back fellow original stars Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin.
