Bob Saget Defends Olsen Twins’ ‘Fuller House’ Decision

“Fuller House” won’t be full with the Olsen Twins, something Bob Saget is at peace with.

Access Hollywood spoke to the actor at the “Entourage” premiere on Monday, where he weighed in on Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen’s decision to pass on appearing in the Netflix series.

“I’m not [upset they are not returning]. I’m not because I love them and I want them to do what they want to do and everybody should do what they want to do,” he told Access.

Bob explained that their decision to not come back as Michelle Tanner has nothing to do with any hard feelings towards any of their former “Full House” costars.

“They love everybody, I mean, I love them, people should do what they want to do,” he continued. “I think people that are doing [the new series] are excited that they are doing it. Nobody is feeling anything but happiness that people want to see [these characters] again.”

The upcoming series will focus on the Tanner sisters D.J. (Candace Cameron-Bure) and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and their childhood pal Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) and their characters’ kids.

Along with Bob, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier and John Stamos, who will guest star and produce the series, are also lined up for the Netflix project.

The Olsen twins, 28, began playing Michelle when they were just 9 months old. “Full House” ran from 1987 to 1995.
