Don’t hold your breath for an Olsen twin cameo in Season 2 of “Fuller House.” The Netflix original series, which premiered in March, brought back a number of the original stars of “Full House,” though neither Mary-Kate nor Ashley Olsen was on board.
With Season 2 looming, fans of the show remain hopeful that the pair — who, together, played Michelle Tanner for nearly nine years — will make an appearance. During a recent interview, however, Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) opened up about the possibility of Mary-Kate and Ashley returning, assuring fans that the odds were slim to none. The mother of two told Entertainment Tonight that she and her co-stars were no longer holding out hope for their former cast mates to return to the series.
“We’ve tried everything,” she said. “I think we’ve kinda given up.”
Although the Olsens won’t be making a cameo, several other celebrities have signed on to appear in Season 2 of “Fuller House.” Sweetin, 34, did not reveal the exact lineup of guest stars for the forthcoming season, but told ET that a number of people being featured have been talking about doing the show for decades. Sweetin added that Season 2 is “going to be a lot of fun” for viewers.
“We have a lot. A lot of people that have been talked about for like 30 years are going to be on the show,” she said.
Little is known about Season 2 of “Fuller House” at this time. As was previously reported, behind-the-scenes photos suggest the Netflix original series will feature a holiday-themed episode. On Aug. 9, Lori Laughlin, who plays Aunt Becky on the show, posted a photo of herself and co-stars John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Scott Weinger and Juan Pablo Di Pace sitting on the stoop of the home in which much of the show is filmed. The cast appear to be wearing holiday sweaters in the photo. While Laughlin did not say for sure that Christmas would be the theme of any upcoming episodes, many fans speculated as much from the appearance of the actors in the Instagram picture.
If there is any truth to that theory the Christmas episode would be one of two holidays the Tanner’s and their friends will celebrate together in the sophomore season of “Fuller House.” In June, creator Jeff Franklin sat down with TV Line to discuss the second season, revealing that it will feature a Thanksgiving episode. The episode will star several old favorite and introduce viewers to a new cast member — Joey’s (Coulier) wife. Joey’s wife has been described as an “enthusiastic, upbeat, fun-loving magician.” He also has three children on the show that will be joining their mother and father for a feast at D.J. Tanner’s (Candace Cameron Bure) in episode 6.
