One of the most popular sitcoms ever, Full House launched its star ensemble into career apexes at the time, and it's certainly feasible Netflix's continuation-com Fuller House will do the same for its lesser-known stars. Especially since the show has (presumably) been a success for the streaming service. We all know the most financially stable former Full House cast members are the business-savvy Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, so one might be wise to keep an eye on Fuller House twins Dashiell and Fox Messitt. And it's been revealed just how much they're getting paid for the upcoming Season 3: $9,734 an episode.
If you're reading that and experiencing an unscratchable itch of jealousy, you're not alone. Assuming Fuller House works like normal TV shows, each episode likely takes around a week or so to produce, if that long, so Dashiell and Fox Messitt are raking in nearly ten grand a week. And all without having to put up as much of an effort to get laughs as Candace Cameron-Bure and Andrea Barber. Not that having a pinch-ably cute face is without its own financial worth. (John Stamos is still pulling that off, amirite?)
As Tommy Fuller Jr., the Messitt twins are making way more than the Olsen twins made per episode back whenever they first joined Full House at nine months old, which was a little less than $1,700 an episode. Granted, that was 30 years ago -- Season 3 of Fuller House is legitimately premiering on the original series' 30th anniversary -- and inflation has definitely changed television salaries. Inflation or not, though, that's a lot of money, and TMZ estimates the two child actors have earned roughly $240,000 for their work on Fuller House. Have mercy...on my own bank account...someone.
Dashiell and Fox Messitt started their Fuller House careers making slightly less than they're getting now. They were originally earning $9,000 per episode, with a 4% pay raise coming for Season 2, and assuming Netflix orders up a Season 4 at some point, they'll probably be getting a little more for that season, too. In comparison to the other child stars on the show now, they're getting the smallest paydays. Ramona Gibbler portrayer Sonia Briggs was reportedly getting around $15,000 an episode last year, Jackson Fuller portrayer Michael Campion was reportedly earning $12,000 an episode, and Max Fuller's Elias Harger was said to have gotten around $10,000 for each half-hour installment.

Fans of Fuller House are going to be chanting "TGIF" soon,, as Season 3 will make its romance-filled Season 3 on Netflix on Friday, September 22, at 12:01 a.m. PT.
