Full House reunion
Published 7:00 am Wednesday, April 29, 2015
During my teenage years, my daily morning ritual before school would consist of plopping in front of the television and watching “Full House” reruns.
As soon as I tuned in, I became immersed in these characters’ lives and my only child syndrome would vanish as I imagined living with a large family in an overcrowded house in San Francisco.
Since those days, I’ve been secretly hoping a cast reunion would be in the works so I could once again step inside the funny and loving Tanner household.
My prayers were answered when John Stamos, who played Jesse Katsopolis on the ABC family comedy, confirmed rumors of the show’s reboot last week on the network’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Stamos announced that Netflix plans to air a reunion special followed by a spin-off series called “Fuller House” in 2016.
“Full House” centered on three men raising three girls under one roof. The family-friendly comedy ran from 1987 to 1995 and made die hard viewers wish they were living in the Tanner household.
The new series is set to follow recently widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller, the oldest sister, and her children. Actress Candance Cameron Bure will return to play the lovable D.J. as well as Jodie Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner and Andrea Barber, who played D.J.’s annoying best friend Kimmy Gibbler, CNN reported.
It’s not yet known whether or not the other cast members will be involved in the project, but Stamos is set to produce and guest star in the series.
While “Full House” could be seen as just another family sitcom, there was something special about the show, which introduced me to my first modern family, and I can’t wait to see what Netflix has in store for the new series.
