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.Written by
The title gives the impression the house established in Full House (1987) is even fuller than before. However, it had more people living in it at one time in the original series, with four adults and five children, as opposed to this show being occupied by three adults and four children. It's also a reference to D.J.'s married name. 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 »
Attention all Full House fans! You will not be disappointed! I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed myself and how well the writing is. It was definitely a nod to fans with its Full House references but there are plenty of modern day topics addressed to keep it fresh and entertaining for new audiences. It was funny, and cheesy (isn't it supposed to be cheesy?) and heartfelt. I'm so grateful to get to revisit one of my favorite shows from my childhood. I really hope they are renewed for more seasons to come. I also hope the Olsen twins have a change of heart and at least come back for a cameo. Watching all of the old cast members return was like visiting family that you haven't seen in years, their friendship and chemistry is apparent through the screen. Bravo to the cast and producers!
