You don’t got it, dude.

It appears Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not be reprising their role as Michelle Tanner in Netflix’s “Fuller House,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Hollywood Reporter cited a statement from executive producer Robert L. Boyett about the absence of the 28-year-old twins in the sequel to the popular sitcom “Full House.”

“Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of ‘Fuller House,’ I know how much ‘Full House’ has meant to them and they are still very much considered family,” Boyett said in the statement cited by the entertainment trade publication.


The Olsens and Boyett could not be reached for additional comment.

Around 7 p.m., actor John Stamos posted on his verified Twitter account that he was “heartbroken." 

“I understand they’re in a different place and I wish them the best. I promise you will not be dissapointed with our reunion and spin off!!" Stamos tweeted. 

About 8:30 p.m., Stamos posted a separate message to his verified Facebook page. 


“Just so you reporters know - this is not a money gig for any of us- quite the opposite - we want to give the fans what they deserve for supporting us for so many years- we all just want to have fun - do it in a classy way on netflix and have a good time- sad that a few don’t share the rest of the cast’s opinion - i can only wish them the best,” Stamos wrote. 

The new 13-episode series, debuting in 2016, will catch audiences up with the members of the Tanner family in modern day. 

The sisters, now fashion designers, shared the role of Michelle Tanner since they were toddlers.

There was some hope the sisters would return with other cast members, including Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Stamos, after Mary-Kate spoke to WWD last month.

“I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening,” Mary-Kate told WWD.

There are no hard feelings, according to the Boyett statement, cited by the Hollywood Reporter.

“It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors,” Boyett said.
