    The gang's all back together!


    D.J. is a mom of three whose late husband died on the job as a firefighter. She also runs a pet clinic.


    Rebecca and Danny are getting ready to move to Los Angeles and host a national morning show called Wake Up USA.


    Jesse, who's joining his wife in L.A., is going to be the new music composer for the soap opera General Hospital.

    Joey is doing 10 comedy shows a week in Las Vegas.


    Nicky and Alex Katsopolis are going on their sixth year in college.


    Stephanie is traveling around the world as a DJ, and she even calls herself DJ Tanner.

    Unlike the rest of the former cast, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen didn't sign on to be a part of the Full House reboot.

    In April 2015, Ashley Olsen told Women's Wear Daily that they didn't know the show was happening before it was announced to the public. "I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn’t even talk about it,” she said.

    “I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos],” said Mary-Kate.

    According to John Stamos, the twins were asked to be a part of the new series.

    "I think there was some confusion. They said first I didn't ask them. And I didn't personally, but I was told they were asked," he explained on Howard Stern's radio show.

    "So I had a knee-jerk reaction and said, 'Bullshit, I did ask them.' And they got upset, so I did call and talked to Mary-Kate and explained what the show is going to be and told them I'd love for them to be on there and they decided not to, which I respect."

    In May 2015, Robert L. Boyett, the executive producer of Fuller House, released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter about the Olsens not returning:

    "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. 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."

    The Olsens have been photographed with their fellow Tanner family members since then.

    Hope you're having fun in NYC, Michelle!
