Playing 'Fuller House' Creators Are Making New Show More 'Adult', Not Ruling Out the Olsen Twins Just Yet

For a modern, edgier audience comes a modern, edgier, "Fuller" House.

Creator Jeff Franklin opened up about the revival series to ET during the TCA Winter Tour on Sunday, where he revealed that the upcoming Full House reboot was going to have a bit more adult humor than the original beloved sitcom.

"It's still a show designed to entertain kids, and at the same time we entertain adults, which is always the challenge to find that balancing act," Franklin told ET. "But I think [these first 13-episode run] is definitely weighted a little bit more to the adults because we're getting to know our three girls that are now beautiful women."

Fuller House -- a continuation of the original series Full House, which went off the air in 1995 -- kicks off years later with a recently widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller enlisting her sister, Stephanie, and best friend, Kimmy, in helping her raise her three children.

"We're also revisiting what we call the legacy cast, our three uncles and aunt Becky as well," Franklin added. "There's a lot of adults to include so then, by nature, it has to be a little more adult."

The creators also addressed the ongoing drama surrounding Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's lack of participation in the revival series.

Fuller House executive producer Robert L. Boyett said that the Olsen twins are "very supportive of the show" but that they've "moved on to other things" in the years since Full House ended.

However, that doesn't mean that the actresses won't return to reprise their singular role as Michelle Tanner sometime in the future.

"They haven't ruled out appearing on the show at some point," Boyett revealed. "But not in this first batch."
