Lori Loughlin, who was sentenced to prison for her involvement in the college admissions scandal, will return to acting in When Hope Calls.
Lori Loughlin is set to return to her acting career after the fallout from the college admissions scandal. The college admissions scheme allowed for parents to pay large sums of money to bribe college officials and alter test scores to admit their children into prestigious universities. Last year, the scandal unraveled to reveal that over 50 individuals, including Loughlin and actress Felicity Huffman, were involved.
Following Loughlin’s indictment, the actress’s career was permanently altered. After her involvement in the scandal came to light, Loughlin was terminated from Fuller House and dropped from her contract with the Hallmark Channel. Last August, Loughlin was sentenced to two months in federal prison and was released before the end of 2020. Earlier this year, Netflix released a documentary that chronicled the events of the scandal, called Operation Varsity Blues. However, Loughlin wasn’t highlighted in the shocking documentary, and the actress has laid low since her release from prison. Now, it appears Loughlin is making a comeback.
