Half of Michelle Tanner Almost Joined Fuller House

With Netflix reuniting the cast of Full House for the awkwardly titled but highly anticipated Fuller House, inquiring minds wanted to know if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would peak their heads out of their respective oversized chunky knits and make an appearance. Turns out, at least one of them wanted to make it happen.

"Ashley said, I have not been in front of a camera since I was 17 and I don't feel comfortable acting," executive producer Bob Boyett told People. "Mary-Kate said, It would have to be me because Ash doesn't want to do it. But the timing is so bad for us." 

Sadly, MK was busy being one half of the respected, CFDA award winning fashion designers behind The Row and couldn't commit to shooting. As for the absence of the youngest OG Tanner, Fuller House's art imitates life:

The show plays upon their real-life career, explaining that Michelle is absent from the first episode's family reunion because she's busy running her fashion empire in New York.

Fuller House will follow widowed mother of three DJ Tanner-Fuller [Ed. note: a-ha!] (Candace Cameron Bure) as she returns home with little sis Stephanie "How Rude" Tanner (Jodie Sweeten) and BFF Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), who help DJ raise her family. We can also expect some cameos from dad, Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), and everyone's favorite, catchphrasiest uncles Jesse "Have Mercy" Katsopolis (John Stamos) and Joey "Cut. It. Out." Gladstone (Dave Coulier).

Check out the trailer below:
