Lori Loughlin Confirms Return For Fuller House On GMA — WATCH VIDEO!
Lori Loughlin confirmed that she will be reprising her role as Aunt Becky on Netflix’s “Fuller House.” The actress announced the news on Thursday’s “Good Morning America,” saying she was “excited” to come back for the new show. “It’ll be really great to be back with the whole cast,” said Loughlin, adding, “It’ll be a lot of fun… We’ll come back and do the first episode, and then maybe throughout the season we’ll come back and pop up here and there.” See the video below.
Loughlin also commented on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s decision not to return for the spinoff. As Gossip Cop reported late last week, the Olsen twins won’t reprise their shared role as Michelle Tanner. “We would have loved it. It would have been great,” said Loughlin, noting, “But I understand.”
As Gossip Cop noted, a number of other former “Full House” cast members have signed on to appear on the upcoming spinoff show. Candace Cameron-Bure’s character, D.J. Tanner, will be the main focus of the new show, along with the characters Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). John Stamos is producing the project, and will have a recurring role as Uncle Jesse. Also returning to the show for a brief reunion is Dave Coulier as Joey. Bob Saget has not yet announced if he will be reprising his role as patriarch Danny Tanner.
When Netflix announced the sequel series, the platform said it was still in negotiations with Saget and other cast members. Loughlin later confirmed that she did not yet have a deal. Happily, that’s now changed. Loughlin’s news comes a week after Bure herself said the whole cast would be back for one episode. Check out the interview below, and tell us what you think of Loughlin returning as Aunt Becky.
