Netflix has garnered a reputation in recent years for bringing beloved series back from the dead, whether it be giving new life to Arrested Development, or rebooting Canadian teen drama with Degrassi: Next Class. The next television series to get new life thanks to Netflix is Fuller House, a sequel series to the family sitcom of the late ’80s/early ’90s Full House.
Fuller House will follow the next generation of the Tanner family living in their iconic San Francisco home. This time, D.J. (returning star Candace Cameron Bure) will be raising her three sons with the help of her younger sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber). Netflix has released a new logo for Fuller House, tapping into Full House nostalgia, and revealed a look at the full cast – but the newest teaser for the series features the family back together again.
Netflix released the new teaser (above), which gives Full House fans their first look at all the characters, new and returning, in the home that was featured on the original series. Gearing up for the show’s premiere, Netflix previously released a teaser focusing on the house, with the voices of the cast heard off screen; another teaser focused on D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy dancing to Silento’s 2015 hit “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)”.
Fuller House will see the elder generation from Full House return to their roles to appear along with the new show’s main cast: Jesse (John Stamos), Danny (Bob Saget), Joey (Dave Coulier), and Becky (Lori Loughlin). As was the case on Full House, the women will be raising D.J.’s three sons – Jackson (Michael Campion), Max (Elias Harger), and Tommy (Dashiell and Fox Messitt) along with Kimmy’s daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas) – following the death of her husband.
In addition to these main and recurring cast members, Fuller House will see the return of Scott Weinger as Steve, D.J.’s high school boyfriend, as well as Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit as Jesse and Becky’s twin sons Nicky and Alex. The only stars of Full House not returning are, of course, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen; the rumors surrounding the possibility of their return circulated for months while Fuller House was in production before Stamos finally said they had turned the Netflix series down because they didn’t want to return to acting.
Though fans of Full House have been disappointed to hear the Olsen twins won’t be returning, Fuller House has managed to reunite every other main cast member from the beloved family sitcom. Netflix’s newest teaser is sure to inspire nostalgia in Full House fans since it showcases many of the Tanner family members, Kimmy included, in such a familiar setting. Of course, whether or not Fuller House is successful in creating a new series as well as tapping into that Full House nostalgia remains to be seen.
Fuller House will premiere on Netflix on February 26th, 2016.
