Sweetin's worked in a number of independent films since Full House, including Port City and Redefining Love. Famously, she battled drug addiction throughout the decade after the show's conclusion, a struggle she chronicled in her book, unSweetined.

She hit the ballroom on season 22 of Dancing with the Stars, and in January 2016, the mother of two girls got engaged to boyfriend Justin Hodak, though they split in March 2017. In 2019, she shared plans to launch a parenting podcast.

On Jan. 17, 2022, Sweetin announced she was engaged to boyfriend Mescal Wasilewski, days before her 40th birthday.

The pair then wed in an intimate ceremony at a private home in Malibu on July 30, 2022.

Just one year after Full House ended, Cameron became Cameron Bure when she married hockey pro Vareli Bure. She appeared in a few TV movies as well as an episode of Boy Meets World, and then took a few years off from acting to focus on her family (she has three grown children).

Since going back to work, her most memorable pop culture moments have been in the show Make It or Break It, her gig as a co-host on The View and her third-place finish on Dancing with the Stars. And she made Full House fans the happiest in 2016 when she, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber rebooted their series with the Netflix show Fuller House, following their characters into adulthood (and featuring cameos from most of the OGs).

MARY-KATE & ASHLEY OLSEN

For these two, Full House was just the beginning. The twin sisters went on to release a number of successful straight-to-video movies (Passport to Paris, anyone?), star in two more TV shows and launch their own company, Dualstar, which they took over as joint CEOs in 2004. Gradually, they both exited the acting world — Ashley hasn't had a real role in more than a decade, while Mary-Kate held on a little longer with stints in shows like Weeds. Now, they head up two fashion brands, The Row, a couture line, and the ready-to-wear label Elizabeth and James.

In 2015, Mary-Kate quietly married French banker Olivier Sarkozy, and opened up about their seemingly normal life in a 2017 interview with The Edit, while talking about balancing family and career. "We're lucky [working hard] comes quite naturally for us. We don't need so much time to sit and think and ponder," she said.

Mary-Kate filed for divorce from her husband in 2020, and has since focused on her equestrian work. Ashley has kept a similarly low profile, walking the red carpet solo at the 2021 CFDA Awards. Their sister Elizabeth is currently having a moment thanks to her role in the critically acclaimed WandaVision.

The Tanner family patriarch kept busy after the Full House finale, appearing on shows like Raising Dad, Entourage and Grandfathered. He'd also consistently done stand-up and released a book, Dirty Daddy (Danny Tanner would not approve). And, of course, as How I Met Your Mother fans know, he voiced the "older" Ted Mosby throughout the show's nine-season run.

Married to Kelly Rizzo since 2018, Saget had three adult daughters with ex-wife Sherri Kramer. The actor was found dead in an Orlando hotel room on Jan. 9, 2022, after doing a stand-up show outside of Jacksonville, Florida. He was 65.

Stamos hasn't stopped since Full House, nabbing a number of films and TV shows, most notably in ER, on which he starred for four years. More recently, he had featured spots in Glee, Scream Queens, Grandfathered and his newest project, Big Shot.

In 2018, he married longtime love Caitlin McHugh; together, they have one son, Billy.

And on top of all of that, Former President Barack Obama called him "the best looking Greek around" when the two met in 2015..

Throughout the past two decades, Coulier has stayed active in the industry, appearing in a number of TV shows and films. Known for his voices and impressions (Mr. Woodchuck!), he's done lots of voice work, too. But he's definitely remained loyal to his first love, comedy, and continues to tour as a stand-up comedian.

In 2014, he wed Melissa Bring, with his Full House costars at his side.

After Full House wrapped, Barber bowed out of the acting world. She graduated from Whittier College, earned an M.A. in women's studies from the University of York in England and then went back to work for her undergraduate alma mater. In 2002, she married Jeremy Rytky, with whom she has two children; they divorced in 2014. Fuller House was her first role (with the exception of an appearance on It's F---in' Late with Dave Coulier) since the original series' end.

Since Full House, Loughlin's pretty much been a staple on TV screens everywhere. She's starred in shows like In Case of Emergency, 90210, What Calls the Heart and Summerland, which she co-created and produced, not to mention her numerous Hallmark Channel movies and holiday films.

She married her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli in 1997; the couple has two adult children, Isabella and Olivia. The family was embroiled in the 2019 "Varsity Blues" college admissions bribery scandal, when it was discovered they paid more than $500,000 to have their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the rowing team. Loughlin served two months in prison for her actions in late 2020, with Giannulli sentenced to five months for his part in the scandal. She stepped back into the acting world in late 2021.

Neither of the twins have acted since their Full House days, and most likely, lived out the rest of their childhood and adolescence in relative normalcy. However, they couldn't keep away from the industry entirely: Dylan worked in the sound departments on Game of Thrones and Black Sails, while Blake did the same on FBI and Castle Rock. In 2016, they made a brief appearance on Fuller House, too.
