Lori Loughlin cut from Hallmark Channel programming amidst college admissions scandal

Don’t expect to see Full House alum Lori Loughlin on the Hallmark Channel any time soon.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Hallmark Channel announced on Thursday (March 14) that they’re parting ways with actress Lori Loughlin.

The decision comes just days after news broke that Loughlin took part on a nation-wide college admissions scandal.

The actress, best known for her role as Aunt Becky on Full House, currently stars on the network’s When Calls the Heart series, and additionally has appeared in a handful of Hallmark’s made-for-TV movies.

Loughlin was one of 50 individuals indicted by prosecutors for paying bribes, altering standardized test scores, and fabricating athletic resumes in an effort to ensure their children gain admission to elite universities.

“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” said the Hallmark Channel in a statement. “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 aside, Loughlin is one of the many Full House alums currently taking part in Netflix’s Fuller House revival.

The family sit-com is currently gearing up for its fifth and final season and according to TV Line, Loughlin won’t be returning to reprise her role as Aunt Becky.

Netflix has yet to confirm whether or not the actress will make an appearance in the series’ final season, which will premiere in December.
