Lori Loughlin reportedly won’t return for the fifth and final season of Netflix’s Fuller House.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Loughlin, who plays Becky Katsopolis on the show, has been axed from Fuller House, in light of her involvement in a pay-for-play college admission scam that ensnared celebrities, CEOs, and other well-to-do individuals.

Fuller House was renewed for a final season in January and is expected to debut later this year, though it’s unclear how it will deal with Aunt Becky’s disappearance since she’s only a recurring character. This isn’t the first scandal Fuller House has faced: Last year creator Jeff Franklin was fired for allegations of on-set misconduct.

The Hallmark Channel has also cut ties with Loughlin. Her daughter, popular YouTuber Olivia Jade, lost her sponsorship with Sephora. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, appeared in court last week and were freed on bail. She’s set to appear in court in Boston on March 29.

The Daily Dot has reached out to Netflix for comment.
