Netflix House Getting Fuller
By CHLOE CITRON
“Fuller House,” the long anticipated sequel to the 1990s hit show “Full House,” is scheduled to debut as a Netflix original series on February 26, and the internet cannot contain its excitement.
The original show focused on the Tanner family with patriarch Danny, his three daughters, his brother-in-law and show’s heart-throbJessie, and comical best friend Joey, who all moved in together to help Danny raise his children after his wife died. “Full House” was on television for 8 seasons and touched the hearts of viewers of all ages by addressing many real-life situations. From Danny losing his wife and raising his children as a single dad, to teenage eating disorders and peer pressure, to trying to find love at all ages and even to trying to figure out one’s life as an adult, families were able to connect to “Full House” no matter how young or old.
“Fuller House” has a plot line similar to the original show and takes place in the same San Francisco home the original cast members grew up in. The Netflix original focuses on Danny’s eldest daughter, D.J., after her husband passed away and left her with three sons. D.J. enlists her sister Stephanie, and her childhood next door neighbor Kimmy Gibler to help her raise her sons (sound familiar?). Most of the original cast is back to revive their roles, although the lovable youngest Tanner daughter Michelle, played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, will be missing from the show because the twins are supposedly working on an addition to their fashion line.
On December 17, Netflix released a trailer that didn’t include any characters, but panned the house that the fans know and love. Senior Melissa P. grew up watching “Full House” and after viewing the trailer stated, “Every night when I was younger, I used to watch episodes and I’ve always loved it because I felt like it related to my life and I loved the characters. I can’t wait to see how the characters turned out because I think it will be fun.” Junior Cameron L. is patiently waiting for the show’s debut, “Since the original show never had an ending, it’s exciting to see how they are going to continue the story and to see how all of the characters grew up.” Senior Haley R. also said “I can’t wait to binge-watch the show on Netflix because they’re releasing it all at once. I used to love ‘Full House’ as a kid and this brings back great memories for me.”
The show’s actors seemed to have stayed close over the years, constantly popping up on each other’s social media accounts. In addition to the trailer, Netflix released a fun video with the show’s three main characters, D.J., Kimmy and Stephanie, dancing to “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).” Watch this video to get pumped for the show’s premiere!
