Fuller House season 5 episode 1 filming officially begins!

Fuller HouseThere’s no more waiting for Fuller House … at least if you are one of the lucky people in attendance to the show’s taping this afternoon.

As confirmed by executive producer Bryan Behar in a new post on Twitter (see below), today marks the first day of season 5 production for the popular Netflix series in front of a live audience. It’s been set up for some time that May 31 would be the first day of filming, and Fuller House constantly remains a hot ticket in the Los Angeles area. It’s a show that welcomes a wide range of audience members, and it’s also a show that is steeped in a ton of nostalgia, as well. Given that this is the final season, we also imagine that there’s going to be more attention in these tapings than ever before.

With this in mind, we wouldn’t be shocked if there are a few scenes that are filmed in front of a smaller audience … or no audience at all. There are certain things that the producers may want to keep secret until the series actually premieres on Netflix later this year. Given that this is the end of the road for the series, and possibly the franchise as a whole that began with Full House, this is the time to pull out all of the stops. We’ve already advocated personally for making at least one more phone call to the Olsen Twins; even if they say no, you can at least say that you gave it one last shot before the series came to a close.

In terms of story elements the show can control, here’s hoping for a wedding (or two, perhaps!), plus also some moments with DJ, Stephanie, and Kimmy’s careers moving into an even better spot. This is a show that is ultimately about family, so of course we imagine that there will be fun moments aplenty for all of the characters together. DJ in particular is going to have to deal with some of her kids getting older, and moving into parts of their lives where their attitudes change. Yet, this is a show for the whole family and one that relies heavily on stability — with that, don’t expect any sort of crazy swings in tone. This is a show designed to make you smile, and not so much make you question the medium of comedy. It’s funny, and sometimes, a quality show doesn’t need to be anything more than that.

What else to expect in the weeks to come…

As more episodes film, we absolutely anticipate that there are going to be some more opportunities to learn about guest stars! For the most part, we expect news to come out about many of them thanks to these tapings — it’s kinda hard to keep things under wraps once the metaphorical toothpaste is out of the tube. (We’re going to have more updates throughout the weeks ahead over here, so be sure you don’t miss it.)
