You don’t got it, dude. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not be reprising their shared role as Michelle Tanner in Fuller House after all. In a statement to Us Weekly, executive producer Robert L. Boyett confirmed the sad news.

“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 on Friday, May 22. "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. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards Fuller House."

Fuller House, the Netflix revival of the iconic ABC sitcom Full House, will bring back original cast members Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier. Key players Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin are reportedly still in talks.

Stamos, who is also producing the show, put the Olsen twins on blast after the two child stars claimed they hadn’t been made aware of the show’s return.

“I call bulls—t,” Stamos tweeted and then deleted after the Elizabeth & James designers said he forgot to tell them. Bure, for her part, was less optimistic that her former costars would return. "It would be great if one of them came back," she told Us Weekly exclusively last month, "but I'm not holding my breath."

Mary-Kate and Ashley took on the role of Michelle when they were only 9-months-old. The series ran from 1987 to 1995.
