We may not know much about what’s ahead for the final season of Fuller House on Netflix, but we know one thing: longtime series costar Lori Loughlin will not be included in it. Recently, Candace Cameron Bure reacted to Lori Loughlin’s Fuller House exit in the wake of her legal woes and college admissions scandal with her husband, Mossimo Giannulli. Loughlin’s downfall was swift and decisive, with her cut from Fuller House as one of the many repercussions for her alleged criminal activity.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Cameron Bure had this to say about Loughlin’s involvement in the final Fuller House season: “[Loughlin’s exit] hasn’t been discussed. I have absolutely no answer for it and Netflix has not even spoken about it.”
Despite Cameron Bure being in the dark about Loughlin’s involvement in the show, she has shown support for her costar of more than 30 years since news of the college admissions scam broke in March 2019. While accepting an award at the 2019 Kid’s Choice Awards with Fuller House costars Andrea Barber and Jodi Sweetin in late March, Cameron Bure addressed Loughlin’s legal situation while not naming her: “A loving family sticks together no matter what. They stick together through the hard times, they support each other, they encourage one another, they pray for each other, and they stand by their side, no matter how tough it gets. And a loving family that sticks together also celebrates the really good times together.”
In March, Loughlin and Giannulli were indicted in the college admissions scam that included fellow actress Felicity Huffman as well as dozens of wealthy parents involved with illegal acts to get their children into elite colleges. As far as Loughlin and Giannulli are concerned, the couple has been charged with mail fraud, money laundering and paying up to $500,000 in bribes as part of their alleged plan to get daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli and Bella Giannulli into college. Loughlin and Giannulli have pled not guilty to these charges as their trial approaches.
It remains to be seen if Loughlin’s career will ever recover from this legal blow to her life. In the immediate wake of her indictment, she was dropped from longtime employer Hallmark Channel and Netflix revealed she wouldn’t be involved in the fifth and final season of Fuller House — likely the last time the Full House cast will be together on television.
