Netflix Sets “Fuller House” Release Date- See the Promo
“Fuller House” is ready and raring to go, according to the good people at Netflix. The spin-off of the hit ABC family sitcom “Full House” is bringing back most of the original stars, excluding Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, who have opted out of the thirteen episode special. There is no word as to whether or not success of the show could lead to a regular series but that would be the hope for die hard fans. The show will, in essence, be a female version of the original series where Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) had to navigate raising his three daughters DJ (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle (the Olsen twins) after the death of his wife/their mother. He recruited his brother-in-law, the rebellious Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) and longtime comedian friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) to help him with the day to day struggles of being a working single parent. Andrea Barber played DJ’s best friend, the ditzy and quirky Kimmie while Lori Loughlin joined the cast as Danny’s “Wake Up, San Francisco” co-host Becky, who went on to marry Uncle Jesse. They ultimately welcomed twin boys, Nicky and Alex (Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit) but by the end of the series, everyone was growing up and moving on and it ended after nearly a decade in 1995. This time around, the family is there to help DJ and her family as they navigate through their own traumas. Here is a sneak peek at to what to expect:
The show will premiere February 26th, 2016 and all thirteen episodes will be available for binge-watching. Everyone, including DJ’s love interest Steve will return played by Scott Weinger but as we mentioned before, no Michelle Elizabeth Tanner. After seeing Candace Cameron Bure on “The View,” I have mixed emotions about her returning but I am hopeful that once they unlock the doors to their old home, everything will be amazing again. Will they address the fact that Sweetin aka Stephanie battled drugs in real life or will they gloss over it and keep her the sweet yet funny middle child? The wait is almost over; just a little over two months to go! Let us know what you think!
