When news of the upcoming "Full House" spinoff "Fuller House" was revealed, it appeared that most, if not all, of the original cast was on board for the project. But when John Stamos confirmed the project this week, several key cast members were still hammering out deals to return -- and now one former costar has revealed why.
In an interview with Access Hollywood Live, Lori Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on the show, revealed that she wants to return for the new series, but indicated that unequal contracts (a.k.a. wildly different salaries) were the main sticking point for the remaining actors, including Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Per Access Hollywood:
"I don't know," she said when asked if she's coming back for the Netflix revival.
"They made deals with half the cast, but not the other half," she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. "I don't have a deal, Dave doesn't have a deal, Bob, we're all in negotiations.
"I think we would all like to come back, if the powers that be are fair to all of us," she continued.
Loughlin also revealed that the entire cast was in discussions to reunite for a one-hour reunion show, but that all depends on whether the Olsen Twins will come back -- and whether or not the remaining actors can work out their financial issues. Loughlin told Access Hollywood that the Olsens (who famously announced they were done with acting a couple years ago) aren't concerned with the money aspect, and may end up not participating at all. But the actress said she hoped she would be there when the cameras start to roll.
"We want to be there, we want to come back. It's up to them," Loughlin told Access Hollywood of her former co-stars. "It's not on us, it's on them."
"Fuller House" will focus on D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), her best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber), and her younger sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) raising their respective families together, much like in the original ABC series. Stamos, who's also producing the project, will also reprise his role as Uncle Jesse. The show is set for a 13-episode run on Netflix.
