The twins, who took turns playing youngest Tanner daughter Michelle, told Women's Wear Daily that they learned about the sequel earlier this week, the same day that fans did.
"I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn't even talk about it," Ashley tells WWD, while Mary-Kate says she's "shocked" she hasn't heard from John Stamos, who confirmed the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night and is serving as a producer on the new series. Stamos will also guest-star on the show, which will star Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. No other Full House star is slated to appear yet.
So, will the twins reprise their role? And if so, will one play Michelle's long-lost sister, or perhaps a clone? Everything's up in the air for now.
"I guess we're going to talk to the creators and see what's happening," Mary-Kate tells Women's Wear Daily.
Adds Ashley: "I'm going to call [Bob Saget] and get his perspective." We only hope there's heartfelt string music swelling in that background of that conversation.
