Did John Stamos manage to guilt trip Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen into appearing on the upcoming "Full House" reboot, aptly titled "Fuller House?"
Stamos first publicly called "bullshit" on the sisters after they told Women's Wear Daily they weren't in the loop regarding the new show. The discord didn't last long, however, as the actor soon tweeted he worked things out after he had a "sweet talk" with Mary-Kate -- though he was unable to convince the twins to sign on. Still, the idea of a "Full House" reunion without the original Michelle Tanner apparently left Stamos, who is also producing the series, "#heartbroken." It turns out that all of this prodding might have been enough to convince the Olsen twins to make an appearance on the series.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos offered a sliver of hope to reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Tuesday, saying the Olsens were "teetering" on their decision to appear on the show:
"There’s a bunch of opportunity for them if they choose to. But they’re not in the current creative," Sarandos added.
Executive producer Robert L. Boyett had previously confirmed that the twins would not be appearing when he released a statement in May.
As the sisters "teeter" with their decisions, the rest of the original cast of the ABC series have signed on to reprise their roles on the Netflix reboot, which will focus on Candace Cameron Bure's D.J. Tanner, who is now a widow with three kids.
