Although it may have been a simple April Fools Joke a few years ago, the Full House revival became a reality when Netflix acquired a sequel series to the beloved ’80s/’90s sitcom. Titled Fuller House, the series debuted on Netflix earlier this year, bringing back all the main cast members of the original show, with the exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as the youngest Tanner daughter Michelle. However, while the adults of Full House — Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner, John Stamos’ Jesse Katsopolis, Dave Coulier’s Joey Gladstone, and Lori Loughlin’s Rebecca Donaldson-Katsopolis — appeared in many episodes, Fuller House focused on a new generation of parents and kids.
Fuller House kicked off with D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) moving back into her childhood home with her three sons, joined by her younger sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), and Kimmy’s daughter. Season 1 of Fuller House featured new adventures for the Tanner-Fuller-Gibbler clan, a love triangle for D.J., and plenty of shenanigans thanks to the kids. Now, the first trailer for season 2 of Fuller House teases even more adventures and shenanigans as the family gathers for the holidays.
Netflix unveiled the Fuller House season 2 trailer [above], which spans the holiday season from Halloween to New Years — including Thanksgiving and Christmas along the way. The trailer arrives after a Halloween-themed teaser was released yesterday, highlighing the return of D.J., Steph, and Kimmy. As it was previously reported, Fuller House season 2 will debut in early December.
The Fuller House season 2 trailer hints at a new romance for Steph — with Kimmy’s younger brother Jimmy no less — and a (probably unexpected) resolution to the love triangle between her, Steve Hale (Scott Weinger) and Matt Harmon (John Brotherton). However, considering both Weinger and Brotherton were promoted to series regulars, they’ll be sticking around the Tanner household in season 2. Kimmy’s ex-husband/new boyfriend Fernando (Juan Pablo Di Pace) was also promoted to a series regular, and appears in the trailer — at one point dressed as Santa.
However, the drama and comedy of Fuller House season 2 isn’t monopolized by the adults. Kimmy’s daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas) receives her first kiss, with Max Fuller (Elias Harger) interrupting with his standard comedic quip. Additionally, D.J.’s eldest son Jackson (Michael Campion) will return along with baby Tommy Jr (Dashiell & Fox Messitt); Ramona’s friend Lola (Ashley Liao) will return as well, though as a series regular in season 2.
Certainly, as hinted by the Fuller House trailer, season 2 will build off of storylines and character arcs established in season 1, while providing a fresh batch of episodes revisiting one of TV’s most beloved sitcom families. Whether season 2 is as popular as season 1 remains to be seen, but Fuller House looks to deliver all the same fun comedy and family drama in its second outing.
Fuller House season 1 is currently available on Netflix. Season 2 will premiere December 9, 2016.
