The original ‘Full House’ family is back


Nearly 21 years since the original series Full House ended, the cast is back for a reunion in the new Netflix series, Fuller House. All the former cast members will be starring except for the Olsen twins, who alternated roles in playing the memorable Michelle Tanner.

The new series takes upon the same storyline as the previous series, bringing back the Tanner house even “fuller” than before. D.J Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) is recently a widowed mother of three who has reached out for help from her sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).

“In the original Full House, it was three guys raising three little girls, it’s now three women raising these three boys,” said Sweetin on the behind-the-scenes teaser.

The show will carry the same loving and emotional value it had when first released, which made it a big hit. Fans have been requesting for years to bring back the popular 90’s sitcom. However, now the show will only be streaming on Netflix, meaning only those who are members are able to watch.

“I’m actually really excited. At first I was really hesitant because sometimes when they redo something they ruin it but because everyone else is coming back (except for the twins) I think it’s going to be great,” said St. Genevieve English teacher Ms. U.

Netflix recently released a teaser of the show, which will premiere on Feb. 26. Along with the trailer was a behind-the-scenes of the famous sitcom set which gave fans a view of the Tanner family back “home.”

“I am expecting to see all the family members together once again celebrating the new upcoming show,” said sophomore Cassey Cruz.

John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), had a lot to say about the twins not returning to the show along with the other cast who think they should also be a part of this reunion. Although, they understand their reason for not wanting to be on TV again after many years of being off camera.

“It was so fun. It was just like a family reunion where some family members didn’t show up” said Stamos on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The Olsen Twins will be missed but the show will still keep the tradition of having a baby as the star of the show, which made it memorable in the first place. Another baby will be a part of the series and star as D.J.’s youngest son of three years old.

Even though the show may or may not be a hit like the previous series, fans are very hopeful that the Tanner house will bring back all the memories, catch phrases and humor just like they did from 1987 to 1995.
