‘Full House’ continuation ‘Fuller House’ likely coming to Netflix with Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber
We are almost definitely now in the era of nostalgia. How else do you explain the fact that we could have a full-on continuation of the world of “Full House” so many years in the future? To quote a popular line from a very different TV show, “what is dead may never die.”
Let us start by sharing what we do know right now. According to TVLine, this project is entitled “Fuller House,” and is close to being confirmed at Netflix with a 13-episode order. The series would star Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber reprising their roles as DJ and Kimmy, though obviously at a very different point in their lives. John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are all in discussions to appear on the show as guest stars, and we promise you now that this story is not meant to be any sort of cruel April Fools’ joke. This is legitimately happening, at least so long as the deal does not fall through at the last minute. Netflix has been in the reviving-series business for some time, having already resuscitated such other projects as “Longmire” and “Arrested Development.” The difference there is that neither was off the air nearly so long, and both of those shows were canceled before their time.
If you are a diehard fan of the original series, we imagine that you may be happy to hear of this news. With that said, how many were clamoring for a new “Full House”? The biggest thing that we take away from this is that if this series can be picked up for more episodes, it gives us a tremendous amount of hope that we could someday see more of a show like “Firefly” or “Chuck,” which remain some of our own personal favorites.
This is a busy day for Netflix, given that it was announced earlier that they are teaming with David Cross and Bob Odenkirk on a new comedy series.
