As many people know, the series “Full House” aired its final episode in 1995. The ABC family-friendly staple of Friday night’s TGIF programming had a near cult following and introduced the world to the Olsen twins. From the comedic jokes of Joey Gladstone to the adorable personality of Michelle Tanner, the show featured characters that people grew to love. To many people’s surprise, “Full House” is coming back but is now called “Fuller House.”
“When I saw on TV that ‘Fuller House’ would be coming back on, I instantly got super excited and it made me think of the older days when I used to sit and watch it for hours,” Maddie London said.
“Fuller House” (the whole season) premiers on Netflix this Friday, Feb. 26. The show follows the adult life of the Tanner children, though Michelle Tanner (played by the Olsen twins) will not be seen on screen. D.J. Tanner-Fuller becomes a widow and has to raise her three kids Max, Tommy and Jackson in these new episodes. She asks for help from her sister, Stephanie.
The original “Full House” was about Jesse and Joey coming to help Danny raise his three children after his wife passed away and now “Fuller House” has the same plot but the role of Danny has gone to D.J. Kimmy, D.J.’s best friend, also comes back to move in with them.
“One thing I am looking forward to is seeing Kimmy and her crazy self appear on the show again. She always makes me laugh and brings some awkwardness to the show,” Taylor Hammill said.
The show will feature the same set as the original episodes. D.J. will move back into the house in San Francisco and begin to live the life her father Danny Tanner once did.
“It made me sad to see that D.J. has to go through raising her kids as a single mom, but I like knowing that her sister, Stephanie, and friend, Kimmy, will be there to help and support her,” Taylor Hickey said.
The talk about “Fuller House” has been constant since Netflix announced the air date. As has been the norm with Netflix originals, “Fuller House” will release all 13 episodes of season 1 at once.
So get ready to grab some popcorn, sit on the couch and binge watch “Fuller House” this Friday!
