Did Candace Cameron Bure Just Confirm Entire 'Full House' Cast Will Be Back for Spinoff?
By Emily Krauser
It looks like our old familiar friends have been waiting just around the bend!
While we still don't know if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will appear in the reboot Fuller House, their former TV big sis is giving us hope.
Candace Cameron Bure revealed to Popsugar that her original Full House co-stars Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky), Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey) and John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) are all reprising their characters on the 13-episode revival series.
Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber were already set as full cast members alongside Bure, as the show's plotline revolves around Stephanie Tanner and Kimmy Gilber helping the recently-widowed and pregnant DJ Tanner-Fuller raise her two young sons in San Francisco.
But will we see anyone else from the original cast in the spinoff? When the show was officially greenlit in April, discussions were "ongoing" with the other stars. "I'm pretty sure that everyone is going to be back at least for one episode," Bure said to Popsugar. "And I'm sure everyone will be hanging out around the set. Because we're all really excited, and it's true that we're all really one big, happy family."
Even the Olsen twins? Last week, the girls claimed that they hadn't heard about Fuller House until its public announcement, but Stamos, who is producing the Netflix series, took to Twitter on April 27 to call that claim “bullshit."
He chatted with Mary-Kate the next day and later deleted his BS tweet, but we still don’t know if we’ll get to see Michelle Tanner when the series is released in 2016.
Had a sweet talk with M.K today!! There way more important things going in the wold today. #Family
Olsens or no Olsens, we're more than a little excited to be reunited with as much of the Tanner clan as possible – even if the premise is even darker than the original. (Have you already forgotten why Uncle Joey and Uncle Jesse moved in with Danny Tanner, because we haven't!)
