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
According to Ashley Liao, there were two golden retrievers that played the Tanners' dog. One was named Cosmo, who appeared in most scenes requiring close-up shots or specific dog tricks. The other, occasionally seen in brief walk-ons in the background, was Executive Producer Jeff Franklin's pet, Charlie. However, Franklin later clarified that there was only one Cosmo, and that Charlie only appeared as a patient at D.J.'s pet clinic. Fans were saddened to learn that Charlie passed away of old age in March 2017. A dedication was made to Charlie during the closing credits of the Season 3 premiere. See more »
In the original series, when Nicky and Alex were born, Jesse built a room on the left (from the viewers' perspective) by the stairs and next to the bathroom. In the reboot, their old room is now on the opposite side of the attic where the closet originally was, and is also quite a bit smaller than the original room. See more »

The critics didn't understand why people liked the first Full House so much and they don't understand Fuller House either. This show was great - it lived up to my personal hype! I was practically raised on this show and it didn't disappoint. The mix of nostalgia, the feel, and even the new "meta" comments totally fit. As a 30 year old I am right in Fuller House's wheelhouse and I identify with the characters, like I did as a kid. Stephanie was my first-ever crush, and it's interesting that she's where I am in life now too (trying to stay young, be free).
The cast's chemistry never went anywhere, and their pure delight on being on this show shines through. The premise is great, the new characters are good (especially cheeky Ramona) and there are so many great places the show can go with its story. The old cheesy humour remains, but the show is self-aware and points fun at it in great ways. In fact, the irony of how this show comes off in 2016 is part of the genius.
This show is satisfying my itch and my soul, do not pass it over because some critic says it's bad.
