After a 20-year hiatus, “Full House,” the hit American sitcom from 1987-1995 will be introducing a revamp of the popular show as Fuller House, exclusively on Netflix this year. The sequel series will star Candace Cameron Bure, also known as “D.J. Tanner” and her three sons.
The character’s new journeys will take place in the same famous San Francisco house the viewers were originally introduced to. The new plot will revolve around D.J. moving back into her childhood home after the death of her husband and father of her children.
Just as the original, the newly single-parent will face problems raising her children alone, so her friends and family will move back home to help.
The cast will include many previous actors from “Full House,” including John Stamos as Jesse Katsopolis, Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner, Lori Loughlin as Rebecca Katsopolis.
With such a large number of actors returning, it came as a shock that the face of Michelle Tanner, the youngest Tanner daughter, twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen both rejected the invitation to return to the big screen for the reboot of the show. The sisters made a statement to the press that they prefer to continue focusing on their current careers in fashion before returning to acting. Their decision especially surprised Stamos, who played the girl’s uncle and had a strong relationship with the twins on and off screen.
“Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of Fuller House, I know how much Full House has meant to them and they are still very much considered family. It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards Fuller House,” Stamos said.
Without Michelle in the show, it’ll be tough to live without her famous catchphrases like “You got it dude.”
The actors are excited to be back in the house, as explained by Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) in a recent interview. “It’s surreal being back, it’s like moving out of your house when you’re a kid and then you move back in. It shouldn’t be this fun.”
Fuller House is set to premiere Feb. 26 on Netflix and is expected to be the best reboot in television history by critics and news stations nationwide.
