    John Stamos is speaking out about the college scandal involving Lori Loughlin.

    The actor spent many years working alongside on-screen wife Loughlin on "Full House," starring as Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky. The pair also reunited in recent years on the Netflix spin-off series, "Fuller House," which is currently in production on its final season. So, how is the show dealing with Loughlin's absence amid the scandal?

    "We haven't yet," Stamos, who is also a producer on the show, told Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell. "I haven't been on the show yet, so, it hasn't come up."

    Stamos went on to say he's going to "talk to some people" this week and try to "figure it out."

    In April, Loughlin and Giannulli both pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

    It was previously announced that Loughlin will not return to The Hallmark Channel series "When Calls the Heart."
