‘Fuller House’ creator defends Olsen Twins joke; hopeful for season 2 appearance

Fuller HouseFor however long “Fuller House” is on the air, there will probably be questions regarding the Olsen Twins. This is just something that all parties really should be aware of. Mary-Kate and Ashley were the breakout stars of the original “Full House,” and there is that inevitable curiosity to see Michelle Tanner on the screen again. The issue is that the twins just are not interested right now in doing the show; they’ve got a successful career in the New York fashion world, and this is something that is going to be a joke-of-sorts in the “Fuller House” pilot, which in some ways is going to double as the “Full House” series finale that the show never had.

In speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour this week, creator Jeff Franklin defended his joke by saying that it was all in good fun; also, he said (per Entertainment Weekly) that there is a hope that maybe the twins will change their mind … or at least one of them will:

“They decided not to at this time. We’re hopeful at some point in the future that they may change their minds and come back and reprise Michelle. We only need one of them, so we’re still hopeful that that will happen.”

We have to imagine that Netflix will want a second season of “Fuller House,” mostly because of all the hype has been there around the show for quite some time.
