If Lori Loughlin does somehow return to Fuller House season 5, it will apparently be a surprise to everyone, including the cast of the show itself.
Speaking in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Candace Cameron Bure made it very clear that she did not know anything in regards to a possible return for the actress, who has recurred on the Netflix series as Aunt Becky:
“It hasn’t been discussed … I have absolutely no answer for it and Netflix has not even spoken about it.”
We know that there have been messages of support for Loughlin as a person throughout this entire process from some within the Full House community, but that and her appearing back on the show are two very different things.
When it comes to her experiences being back on the Fuller House set, however, Candice was a little more open to describe what it’s like (filming begin this past week on the series):
“Oh goodness! I’ve been a big crybaby the whole week — like every day … We’ve had such an amazing run on Fuller House and I work with my best friends every day, so knowing this our last season is quite bittersweet. We’re so happy that we get to do a whole other season, but knowing it’s our last, we’re savoring every moment of it.”
While we would like to see a number of former Full House cast members on the final Fuller House season, it’s hard to get altogether optimistic about Lori turning up. The legal system still has not rendered a verdict on the college admissions case, and to go along with that, there could be a perception that her arriving on set would be some sort of distraction from everything else that is going on with the story. Obviously, the character of Becky and Lori as an actor are two very different people, but it’s hard to really separate the two entirely in terms of Lori being on the show again.
Instead of continuing to go on about Lori, here’s a reminder that we’ve already talked a little bit about who we would like to see back on the final season of Fuller House — it goes a little something like this. How can you not at least put in a request for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen the turn up?
Obviously, we expect that it is extremely unlikely to happen, but given that this is the end of the road, would it really hurt for them to show up even for just a few seconds at the very end of the series finale? They don’t have to be a major part of the show, but it would be a nice nod to their history on Full House, which really is one of their biggest launching pads to everything that they’re doing now.
Fuller House season 5 will premiere on Netflix later this year, and we imagine that there will be more updates on filming every step of the way. We’ll have them for you over here.
