In this Oct. 4, 2017 file photo, actress Lori Loughlin arrives at the fifth annual People Magazine "Ones To Watch" party in Los Angeles. The FBI says Loughlin has been taken into custody in connection with a scheme in which wealthy parents paid bribes to get their children into top colleges.

SALT LAKE CITY — Aunt Becky won’t be waking up in San Francisco for much longer.

Multiple reports suggest that Lori Loughlin, who played the role of Aunt Becky in “Full House” and the spinoff “Fuller House,” won’t return to the show following the college bribery scheme.

  • Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulliwere accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their two daughters would be crew recruits for the University of Southern California despite never practicing the sport, according to the Deseret News.

The Hallmark Channel dropped Loughlin from her starring role on “When Calls the Heart” in the wake of the scandal too.

So how will Loughlin exit “Fuller House” ahead of the show’s final season? TVLine worked to answer that question by coming up with six scenarios about the future of the character.

Here are the highlights from TVLine:
