Lori Loughlin is Reportedly Being Written Out of 'Fuller House' Amid the College Admissions Scandal

As the fallout of the college admissions scandal continues, it looks like another company might be severing ties with actress Lori Loughlin, one of the parents charged in the scheme.

According to reports from Deadline and TVLine, Loughlin, who reprised her role as Aunt Becky on Netflix’s Fuller House, will be written out of the fifth and final season of the show.

A formal decision has not been announced yet, but a production source told TMZ that “Lori is a guest star and was during the previous four seasons, and there are currently no plans for her to return to the fifth season.”

Her departure would not impact production as the show has not begun filming for the final season yet, Entertainment Weekly reports.

This news follows a recent announcement from Hallmark that it was severing all ties with the actress.

“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” the Hallmark Channel’s parent company Crown Media announced Thursday afternoon. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production.”

Hallmark also made the decision to not air the latest episode of Loughlin’s series When Calls the Heart, which is currently the highest-rated show on the network.

Companies have also started to distance themselves from Loughlin’s daughter, social media influencer Olivia Jade, including Sephora and TRESemmé.

“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” Sephora announced in a statement.   

Loughlin faces charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud after she and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 in bribes to have their daughters “designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”

Loughlin surrendered herself to authorities on Wednesday, but was later released after paying a $1 million bond.
