It's official: This is a Fuller House world and we're just living in it. The revival series of the beloved TGIF staple Full House took the world by storm on Nextlix, securing a second season order within a week of its release. But for die-hard fans of the original, there were more than a few things missing.
Of course, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen's absence meant no Michelle Tanner—and no one to adorably utter "You got it, dude!"—but their absence also meant we didn't get to check in with the many friends of hers we fell in love with over the years, like the one and only Denise Frazer. E! News' Erin Lim recently sat down with the actress who brought Denise to life way back when, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, to get some dish on the Full House set and see if she'd be game for season two if Fuller House came calling.

"I don't know. What is Denise up to? I guess that would be my question," said Smollett-Bell, who's starring in WGN America's Underground, premiering March 9.
While the likelihood of a Denise appearance in season two would, again, hinge on the Olsens, that doesn't mean we can't imagine what Denise would be up to these days, right? For Smollett-Bell, who was five when Full House filmed, doing her best guesswork would also mean some homework. "I have no idea," she said when posed the question. "Maybe I should go back and watch the show and remember what she was like."
What Smollett-Bell did remember, however, was how she won over Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen back in the day. "I don't remember a lot except I remember I knew how to read at an early age and they were so impressed that I knew how to read," she revealed. "But we were babies. And what trips me out is that people still come up to me and say, ‘Oh my gosh, I loved you on Full House!' I'm like, ‘Really? Please tell me I've changed just a little bit since I was five!'"

Underground premieres Wednesday, March 9 at at 10 p.m. on WGN America, while all episodes of Fuller House are available to stream now on Netflix.
