Netflix is prepared to move on with with “Fuller House” as Lori Loughlin faces charges of paying bribes to get her children into college.

Multiple outlets, including TMZ and TVLine, have reported sources who said Loughlin, a recurring guest star on “Fuller House,” won’t return for the show’s fifth and final season.

An individual with knowledge of the situation told INSIDER that “production is not impacted” by Loughlin’s ongoing scandal, but wouldn’t confirm whether or not she’ll be returning.

The 54-year-old actress reprised her role of Aunt Becky, Uncle Jesse’s wife from the original “Full House,” for the sequel series.

Loughlin was among 50 people, including actress Felicity Huffman, charged by the Department of Justice in a college admissions scandal that reportedly allowed wealthy families to scam their children’s way into prestigious universities.

The actress and her husband, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are both accused of paying $US500,000 in bribes for their two daughters to be admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, despite the fact that neither of the girls rowed crew.

Loughlin and her husband each paid $US1 million dollar bails. She was given permission to travel to Vancouver to work but is expected to face charges in Boston federal court on March 29.
