Okay, we’re starting to get more and more excited for this show to premiere on Netflix. This whole Donald Trump bit is kind of random, but we think it’s probably just an excuse to get us riled up for the Tanner family to return. Oh my goodness, nostalgia.
I have to admit, I’m a little bit nervous about Fuller House, but this was my favorite sitcom growing up (90’s kid here!) so there was no way that I wouldn’t at least catch the first few episodes. I was also pretty ecstatic when I heard that Netflix had picked it up and made it into an actual thing. The trailer doesn’t seem too promising, but I love that DJ is back in the forefront. Gibbler is completely awkward, but that’s to be expected and – why is Stephanie Tanner so tall?!
Mandi and I won’t be able to watch it together the day it premieres, but we are planning to get together shortly after to stream it from one of our laptops and watching it in front of Alamo Square because that just seems like the right thing to do. She also just conveniently lives right. there.
Because we absolutely needed to talk about the revival of “Full House!” Earlier this week, the news broke out that Netflix would be bringing Full House back to life and the plot line got us even more excited.
According to E! the new series will follow older sister, D.J. Tanner-Fuller (wow, that pun!), played by Candace Cameron-Bure, who is “a pregnant veterinarian – recently widowed – and living in San Francisco.” Jodie Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner, and Andrea Barber, D.J.’s BFF-neighbor Kimmy Gibbler will also star in the series. It’s also heard that John Stamos will co-star and produce.
Now, of course we would love it if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would reprise their role as Michelle Tanner, but it looks like Lori Loughlin isn’t holding her breath and threw a little shade saying she doubts that they even care about the revival. However, after a post I saw yesterday from Ohnotheydidnt, it looks like it’s not completely off the table for the twins.
Mary-Kate said, “We just found out about it today. I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening.”
Meanwhile Ashley said she was surprised that her old co-stars hadn’t mentioned anything to her. “I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn’t even talk about it. I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos].”
As to whether they’ll participate, Ashley said, “I’m going to call [Saget] and get his perspective.”
Omg. It’s really happening! Now #whereiscomet
Also, was D.J.’s husband Steve?! Did Steve die? I have so many questions.
As a 90’s child, I couldn’t get enough of Full House. It was my favorite show and I was convinced that Michelle Tanner and I were pretty much the same person… but you know as two different races and two completely different families. When I saw Alamo Square for the first time and the Painted Ladies (highlighted in the opening credits) I could have died out of excitement. So when it was announced earlier this week that Netflix might be signing on for a reboot of my favorite series, I nearly thought it was an April Fool’s prank. Luckily it wasn’t.
Here’s what we know so far:
– Netflix will be taking on 13 episodes continuing the series.
– It will be titled “Fuller House” instead of “Full House.”
– Candace Cameron Bure will reprise her role as DJ and Andrea Barber will return as Kimmy Gibbler! (The Gibbler!!)
More importantly, are they still in San Francisco? Alamo Square? Where are Danny, Jesse, and Joey now? Are they all still living together? I have so many questions.

If we’re being honest here, Full House without Michelle Tanner just wouldn’t be Full House. Sure, she had her annoying moments, but for the most part – how could you not love her? Michelle Tanner had a really cute relationship with her dog Comet, some awesome best friends (Teddy and Denise, anyone?) and memorable quotes that we’ll always associate with her character.
Jezebel’s creative director didn’t feel the same way and created this video of the opening credits from Full House and a scene from the show without Michelle Tanner. At first, you may not notice that she’s completely out of the picture, but in the one scene it starts to feel a little bit creepy.
Doesn’t this take you back? Jimmy Fallon, you done did Michelle Tanner well.
Dannon Oikos teased everyone this week by posting this ad that will air during the Super Bowl featuring the men of Full House. Jesse, Joey, and Danny – the gang’s all there!
But what exactly can we expect, come February 2nd? The Gibbler? DJ? Michelle, herself? Whatever it is, we can’t wait. Of course, we’ll be watching.
Happy Mid-September everyone!
It’s amazing how quickly this year has flown by. Even though I’m about to embark on my second year out of school, there’s a part of me that still wants to follow suit in that pattern. I started my first job at the start of fall one year ago and now one year later, I’m doing the same thing again. There was something about the new school year that I loved and it wasn’t just that I had a new set of classes, a new wardrobe, or that I was one step closer to starting THIS current life, but it was the idea of starting the year with a fresh slate – wiping everything clean, getting rid of the old and progressing towards the new. That might be one of the reasons why September is considered more of my new year than January. I always like to start Mondays with reflective posts (besides Wedding Mondays!) so here’s A Collection for you 🙂
Oh my gosh. Have mercy!
This actually happened last night and I completely forgot about it while I was out last night, but what a throwback! Danny Tanner and Aunt Becky were also present. Him playing the Full House theme song was such a sweet little tribute to my favorite show.
