Just days after Fuller House premiered on Netflix, the reboot got renewed for a second season -- and apparently fans shouldn't give up hope on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen returning to the Tanner household.
Producer and star John Stamos sat down with the Today show on Thursday, where he said that the twins are "totally welcome" to join the second season and that he has a "good feeling" about the possibility of their participation.
"I was going to see Ashley last night and beg her to be on the show," the 53-year-old Grandfathered star shared. "We would love to have them. I know everyone would love to see them."
The twin sisters, who collectively played toddler Michelle Tanner on the original Full House, famously declined to reprise their role for the Netflix reboot. However, in the first episode of the new show, Michelle wasn't written out entirely.
As the entire family meets in the family's kitchen, Michelle's father, Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) explains her absence saying that she's "busy in New York running her fashion empire."
Stamos also opened up about the reboot's success among fans, and it's almost immediate renewal, explaining that he was "nervous" while shooting the series.
"I was worried because the anticipation really built up from the time we finished to the time we aired," Stamos explained. "[But] people are happy with it. It's so sweet. I'm very grateful."
While the renewal was a great reward for the show, it wasn't the only good news of the week for star Jodie Sweetin. The 34-year-old actress has also signed on to compete in the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars, which premieres March 21. Check out the video below to hear more.
