The Hallmark Channel isn’t the only one cutting ties with Lori Loughlin due to her alleged involvement in a college admissions scandal. On Thursday, shortly after Hallmark’s parent company announced that it is “no longer working with Lori Loughlin,” TMZ reported that the actress has also been dropped from Fuller House, Netflix’s popular Full House revival. Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have been charged with mail fraud for allegedly paying $500,000 to have their daughters admitted to USC as members of the crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in rowing.
According to TMZ, Loughlin will not be returning for Fuller House‘s fifth and final season. A source close to the show told the outlet, “Fuller House is not currently in production. Lori is a guest star and was during the previous 4 seasons and there are currently no plans for her to return to the 5th season.” In Fuller House, Loughlin reprised her classic role as Aunt Becky, Full House‘s matriarch and Uncle Jesse’s (John Stamos) girlfriend-turned-wife. She has appeared in 13 episodes throughout the Netflix revival’s run, and most recently appeared in four episodes of Season 4, which debuted in December.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Fuller House news came just a few hours after Hallmark Channel severed ties with Loughlin, who stars in drama series “When Calls the Heart” and makes regular appearances in the network’s other programs, including Garage Sale Mysteries and many Christmas movies. On Thursday afternoon, Hallmark’s parent company, Crown Media, issued a statement regarding Loughlin’s future at the network. “We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” the statement said. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production.” Talk about a rough afternoon for the actress.
