Full House actor John Stamos has admitted that he was initially "angry" when Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen declined to return for Netflix's revival series Fuller House.

Many cast members from the original 1987-1995 sitcom returned for the sequel series, which ran between 2016 and 2020, including Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Lee Ann Sweetin, Scott Weinger, Lori Laughlin, Stamos, Bob Saget and more.

After the original show ended, the Olsen twins had a hugely successful acting career before deciding to change lanes and pursue fashion design. At the time, there was a bit of a Twitter spat between Mary-Kate and Stamos, who helped broker the revival deal, when the former claimed to not know about it.

Now speaking on the Glee podcast And That's What You REALLY Missed, Stamos told hosts Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz that: "[Bob Saget] was very instrumental in keeping us all together. The twins moved to New York...

"Mary-Kate and Ashley, we didn’t see them much. I mean, we stayed in touch a little bit but Bob really did. And they were so great. You hear rumours, 'Oh, they hated their childhood or they hated being on the show or whatever.'

"When I did Fuller House they didn’t wanna come back. And I was angry for a minute. And that got out. But they were, like, 'We loved our childhood. We loved being with you. We miss Bob.'

"They came over to my house. They brought a pork chop and sage. I don’t know why, but thank you? It was a frozen pork chop, so that was really nice. So we stayed very close."

Fuller House ran on Netflix for five seasons. The cast were expecting a sixth season, but it didn't happen.
