You most likely knew that this was coming, but it is now official: “Full House” is coming back on Netflix. In his appearance this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” John Stamos confirmed the glorious news that “Fuller House” is now official. This is a continuation of the original show, which will feature Candace Cameron Bure as D.J. Tanner-Fuller, who has two children, is expecting a third, and was recently widowed. Jodie Sweetin is also going to return along with Andrea Barber. We know that Stamos is executive-producing and will at least make a guest-starring appearance; meanwhile, discussions are ongoing with many other original cast members.
In a statement, some of the show’s other executive producers such in Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller, and Jeff Franklin said the following:
“The continued support of Full House fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding … 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.”
“Fuller House” would debut at some point in 2016, though for the time being there’s not a whole lot of other information about it just yet. Are we excited over this? Yes and no. Sometimes, you just need to come up with some new ideas rather than just tapping back into nostalgia and regurgitating the past. Ideas that worked 20 years ago may not work now as people have changed, times have changed and most importantly tastes have changed. Many networks have tried to bring back that family sitcom or TGIF line ups and it just doesn’t have the same staying power that it once had.
