In a continuation of Full House (1987), D.J. Fuller is a mother of three young boys and is a recent widow. D.J.'s sister Stephanie, her best friend Kimmy and Kimmy's teenage daughter all move in to help raise her sons. The house is now a lot fuller.
Fuller House is a spin-off series based on the hit ABC family sitcom Full House (1987-95) created and executive produced by Jeff Franklin for Netflix. D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) is a recently widowed mom to a 13-year-old named Jackson (Michael Campion), 7-year-old named Max (Elias Harger), and a newborn son named Tommy (Fox and Dashiell Messitt). After realizing she is unable to cope with the demands of holding a full time job as a veterinarian in addition to raising three kids, her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and childhood best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber), who is also the mother of a 13-year-old daughter (Soni Bringas), offer to move in to bring up her children.

A recurring trait of Tommy's in the first season is that he frequently looks up, with the other characters unable to determine why. This was written into the show when twin babies Dashiell Messitt and Fox Messitt would often be distracted by the boom microphones above the actors' heads. See more »
Kimmy's family has gone through three changes in Full House and Fuller House. In the pilot of Full House, she has three sisters. For the rest of the series, she has only one older brother named Garth. Suddenly in season 2, she has a younger one named Jimmy. See more »
I watched Full House all throughout my childhood/teens and this did not disappoint. Had we watched the original Full House in modern day, of course some of the things would also appear as too cheesy and not totally believable but that's not the point of Full House. It's about watching a family grow into their own and seeing them in all their goofy and over the top glory. It's a feel good show, not a serious drama or even serious show at all. I watched Full House to be inspired by these delightful and naive characters and I still watch it for that reason today. Great job cast and crew for recreating a second generation and for reminding us of some great childhood times spent watching Full House with family.
