Full House is coming back, as 'Fuller House'. have mercy
Fuller House is officially coming to Netflix
It’s happening: Netflix has ordered a 13-episode season of Fuller House. John Stamos will produce the Full House sequel and guest star in his reprised role of Uncle Jesse. Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber will star. Discussions with other Full House cast members Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin are said to be "ongoing." Jeff Franklin returns as the show’s creator.
Fuller House continues the Full House adventures, albeit this time with a gender reversal. Pregnant and recently widowed DJ Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure) is living with her younger sister (Sweetin) and lifelong best friend (Barber) and her "feisty" teenage daughter. All join to help raise DJ’s two boys and prepare for the birth of the new baby.
Full House originally aired from 1987 to 1995 as a comedy series following three men raising three young girls in San Francisco. "The continued support of Full House fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding," said Franklin in a joint statement with the shows executive producers Robert L. Boyett and Thomas L. Miller. "It is an honor and a thrill to catch up with these beloved characters and explore their lives today. The love you saw on the show was real. The cast has remained a loving family off screen all these years. We are as excited as our fans to finally bring Full House back to life."
"As big fans of the original Full House, we are thrilled to be able to introduce Fuller House’s new narrative to existing fans worldwide, who grew up on the original, as well as a new generation of global viewers that have grown up with the Tanners in syndication," said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content for Netflix.
Fuller House will premiere in all Netflix territories in 2016.
I love the fact these all shows are coming back, even comedies.
this has hit Netflix, just watched the first episode.
it was more of a trip down memory lane, oh remember this person, oh remember her. applause. there were some nice and touching flashbacks with the opening credits and some thrown in certain scenes. just watching made me smile, there were some funny moments too. like questioning where's Michelle and breaking the 4th wall. clever! and yes they had to quote themselves again, although my favorite "the hair huh" wasn't. this 1st Ep was just to reintroduce people to the original cast again before splitting up, the show is meant to focus on the daughters and Kimmy while everyone else is off doing different things. everyone but Michelle returned, even the twins came back.
yes it's cheesy but thanks to nostalgia it makes a cheesy show a little better, brings back memories. it's a Netflix exclusive so no waiting for eps to air in the US, all 13 eps are available now. will be watching the rest for sure, and then rewatching the original series again.
