Why Fuller House Emmy nomination is especially historic

Fuller HouseFuller House was officially nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award this week in the category of Outstanding Children’s Program, but what may make this announcement all the more important are the implications of it. How much so? Let’s just say that for the first time in a solid thirty or so years, a show under the Full House brand has received a nomination by the Television Academy.

It goes without saying that this is surprising. Even if the original Full House was not necessarily beloved by critics at all, it was a global hit and it made stars out of John Stamos, the Olsen Twins, and many other familiar faces. We would’ve thought that there would have been an Emmy nomination somewhere in there over the years, but it just never happened.

After waiting all this time to get a little bit of love, it goes without saying now that some members of the cast and crew are more than happy to celebrate the achievement now.

In a post on Twitter, series star John Stamos had the following to say about it:

This nomination comes in the midst of one of the longer Fuller House hiatuses that we have seen over the years, as we are still waiting to even learn what the premiere date for season 4 is even going to be. The show is still in the process of filming new episodes; we know that Stamos himself is confirmed to return, and there will be many other familiar faces from the past (Bob Saget among them) turning up here and there, as well. This series doesn’t necessarily receive a cavalcade of publicity, but it is one of Netflix’s most-successful shows, especially with family audiences. It helps them to reach an audience that they do not always get with some of the other shows that are on their schedule.
