Have mercy, Voltal fans.
It’s been more than 26 years since ABC, after eight extremely successful seasons without ceremony, pulled the plug on the TGIF food, blaming the decision on balloon production costs, as ratings were still pretty solid. After all, a whopping 24 million people tuned in to see the show’s finale, a two-part episode featuring little Michelle Tanner (played fairly iconically by twins) Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) temporarily lost her memory when it was broadcast on 23 May 1995.
And in those two-and-a-half decades, our obsession with and love for the ultimate symbol of the 90s continued. It gave us a five-season continued series, Full House, that wrapped over the summer on Netflix. That’s why we were so stuck as one star (cough Lori Loughlin cough) is trapped with the Feds.
And that’s why we refused to listen as the Olsen twins repeatedly told us they had no interest in revisiting a role in which they were played before they even had cognitive thinking. (You just know there were fans out there who clung to some semblance of hope that there was still a surprise comeo in sight when the Full House finale.)
