Fuller House will not feature Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but it’s more complicated than that. While the twins will not reprise their role as Michelle Tanner in Netflix’s Fuller House – and it’s now official – the show will still have a few things about the character, according to the Huffington Post.
While Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s character will not appear on Fuller House, other characters will have a few things to say about her life. And it seems that the youngest Tanner daughter’s life is a nod to the twins’ real lives: Both the Olsen twins and their character on the show are fashionistas in New York City.
It was already confirmed by Us Weekly that the Fuller House character will be living in New York City and focused on building her own fashion empire. The Olsen twins, meanwhile, run fashion labels The Row and Elizabeth and James.

Moreover, according to an insider who spoke with the magazine, at least one episode of Fuller House will have characters prank-calling Michelle with her well-known line “You got it, dude!” Fans of the original Full House, which ran for eight seasons and ended in May 1995, would remember that as Michelle’s signature catchphrase.
Fuller House will tell a story about D.J. Tanner-Fuller (portrayed by Candace Cameron Bure), a widowed mother of three. The character is fortunate enough to have her sister Stephanie (played by Jodie Sweetin), and her best friend Kimmy (portrayed by Andrea Barber) move in with her and help her raise the children, according to Us Weekly. John Stamos, who will play the role of Uncle Jesse, first announced the remake of Fuller House during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in 2013. He then revealed that he hoped the entire cast would take part in the limited Netflix series.

Fuller House debuts in 2016 and consists of 13 episodes. The upcoming Netflix show will also feature returning stars such as Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin, and Dave Coulier.
After posting a touching Instagram throwback pic with his former Full House co-stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen with a congratulatory note following Mary-Kate’s wedding, John Stamos found himself ignored.
The caption of the photo with the twosome read, “‘In the blink of an eye.’ Congrats MK. X,” but there was no response from either sister. Despite the fact that the Olsen twins ignored his post, it was warmly received by the fans, who appreciated the sweetness behind it.
The photo has so far gotten over 64,200 likes, and the absence of the twins in Fuller House was widely discussed by fans in the comment section. One of the commenters said that the sisters forgot that it was Full House that made them famous, according to Fashion & Style.
“Awesome pic! Too bad they chose not to be on ‘Fuller House.’ I guess they forgot this show is what made them famous.”

According to the magazine, the Olsen twins could have already filmed a cameo for Fuller House despite the thorough and watchful eye of the media and fans of the show.
Candace Cameron Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner on Fuller House, has recently hinted that her character’s first boyfriend (portrayed by Scott Weinger, ) could get back together on the show, according to MTV News.
Moreover, Weinger was recently spotted on the set of the remake of Fuller House, which fans think may prove the actress’ words about her character “thinking about dating.”
“Steve makes a few appearances on the show. I’m sure they talk about old love. D.J. is widowed, and it’s been a while since her husband passed away. She’s thinking about dating.”
Suffice it to say that Full House fans can’t wait for the Fuller House remake to make its way to their TV screens.
