Former “Full House” star Lori Loughlin’s comeback continues, with the actress recently landing another movie role after serving prison time for her part in the college admissions scheme.

The 58-year-old actress will appear later this year in an original Christmas movie on the Great American Family network (GAF), Deadline reported.

Loughlin recently appeared in her first TV movie role since spending time behind bars in the GAF original film “Fall Into Winter,” which debuted on the network in January, as previously reported.

The movie marked the former “Fuller House” star’s first role in a romantic comedy movie since she served two months behind bars for her involvement in the Varsity Blues college admissions scandal.

In May 2020, she and husband fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to a variety of conspiracy charges after paying $500,000 to get their two daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade, into the University of Southern California as phony rowing recruits.

The “Every Christmas Has A Story” star spent two months in prison, while her husband got five months behind bars. Loughlin was released in December, while Giannulli remained behind bars. Giannulli was then released early on April 2, 2021, and served the remainder of his sentence at home, USA Today noted.

In December 2021, the “When Calls The Heart” star made headlines when news surfaced that she would be reprising her role as Abigail Stanton in a spinoff of the her hit show, called “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas.” She appeared in the two-part season 2 premiere of the series.

Executive producer Brian Bird said Loughlin joining GAF was all about “second chances,” as previously reported.

“Taking this photo lifted my heart in so many ways,” Bird shared at the time. “Offering second chances in this messed up world are [sic] just a better way to live.”

“Love seeing Lori Loughlin back on screen as Abigail Stanton … this time in Brookfield and #WhenHopeCalls,” he added. “Loughlin getting hired at [GAF] Family is a curious turn of events that could mean the renaissance of her career.”
