As Radar reported, Loughlin, 54, was arrested in March for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud after allegedly paying $500,000 to secure her daughters Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19, admission to the University of Southern California.

“Lori is beloved by the entire cast and crew of Fuller House, as well as the producers and the executives at Netflix,” the source explained of why Loughlin has a good chance of staging a comeback.

According to the source, Loughlin “would secretly film her scenes with other cast members but not in front of a studio audience,” and she'd appear on four episodes when the show returns.

“Filming would not happen until later this summer, and producers hope all the controversy surrounding Loughlin will have died down by the time the episodes air later this year and they will have a ratings bonanza with Aunt Becky back on the show,” said the insider.

And it’s not just the executives who are behind the daring plan.

John Stamos and other cast members have gone to bat for Lori, and really like this idea,” said the source.
