Given her legal situation as a part of the college admissions scandal, it was obvious that the production wouldn't want the headlines.

As a result, Loughlin doesn't appear on the series' final episodes.

As anticipated, Lori Loughlin - who has been in and out of court for more than a year, thanks to her involvement in the College Admissions Scandal - does not appear in the family comedy's final run.

What happened to Aunt Becky?

Netflix is releasing Fuller House Season 5 Part 2 on June 2nd 2020.

During the final episodes of the season, Jesse (John Stamos) makes it clear that Becky is in Nebraska visiting her mother. Coulier, for example, told Us Weekly that "it didn't feel right" shooting the show without the Aunt Becky star. As USA Today notes, the writers of Fuller House settled their Lori Loughlin predicament with little fuss.

Loughlin is still seen briefly-albeit, not in new footage.

Taking into consideration the fact that Fuller House Season 5 Part 2 will be the final episodes of a mythical series it will be the answer to questions.

The final episodes will be filled with emotion, loads of love, the famous Tanner hugs and above all a celebration of family. Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Michelle (Mary-Kate & Ashely Olsen) following the tragic death of Danny's wife in a auto crash. The Olsen twins have retired from acting and turned down offers to return. This is enough of an explanation for her absence, and the show moves on.

The first reference was when Danny (Bob Saget) said, "Well, Michelle sends her love, but she's busy in NY running her fashion empire". "At these prices, no wonder they don't need to act anymore", Kimmy says. "Hey, how long are you going to keep Michelle's bike?"

No shade was thrown at Loughlin, despite her getting let go from the show previous year after news of the college admissions scandal made headlines. Kimmy Gibbler actor Andrea Barber, meanwhile, told the magazine's Watch With Us podcast: "She was a big part of Fuller House". She was also fired from Hallmark Channel's When Calls the Heart, along with all of the network's future movie projects.

According to the outlet, the actress and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted in March 2019 after they were accused of paying bribes to facilitate their daughters Bella Rose and Olivia Jade's admission into the University of Southern California.

Loughlin and Giannulli, 56, are set to be sentenced in August, but details of their plea deals have already been made public. A judge still has to approve and officially sentence the actress.

Season 5 of Fuller House was divided into two parts- nine episodes in Part 1 and the other nine in Part 2.
