John Stamos on Lori Loughlin situation: He is still trying to ‘figure it out’

Have mercy — John Stamos is still trying to grasp his “Full House” co-star Lori Loughlin’s situation surrounding the recent college admission scandals. 

John Stamos, who starred as Uncle Jesse on “Full House” and reprised the role in the show’s spin-off “Fuller House,” spoke with Nancy O’Dell of ET about how he is dealing with the situation.

As “Fuller House” looks ahead to its fifth and final season, the actor opened up about how they will address Aunt Becky’s (Loughlin) absence. Loughlin will not be returning to the show after she and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to a college consultant to get their daughters accepted into the University of Southern California. The couple pleaded not guilty in April.

While debuting his new art pieces, which will be featured in an upcoming exhibit, Stamos told O’Dell that when it comes to Loughlin’s character in the final season — which he is producing — he is still trying to “figure it out.”

“I haven’t been on the show yet and it hasn’t come up, so I’m going to talk to some people about it this week and see what’s going on,” he said. “I’m just going to wait a little longer before I talk about it. It’s a difficult situation for everyone involved. I don’t mean just on our side.”

However, Stamos did reveal that the show will be split into two parts, with nine episodes each. No release date has been announced.

When asked about another reboot, Stamos didn’t shy away from the idea of another “Full House” spin-off that would be a prequel.

“There’s a lot of energy,” Stamos said of the cast. “I haven’t spoken about this at all. I’m not going to, really, but there’s a lot of energy still with that show. … There’s too much happiness that that show has brought for a lot of people. So it’s not going to go down easy,” he added.
