This Friday the reboot/spin-off of Full House, titled Fuller House debuts on Netflix and it’s expected to blow streaming viewership completely out of the water. Debuting 23 years after the original show went off the air, Fuller House reunites creator Jeff Franklin with almost all of the original cast (minus the Olsen twins) for some 90’s nostalgia.
While early critic reviews for the show have been harsh on the six episodes available for early viewing, there’s one thing everyone agrees on: the show is strictly for the fans. And boy, are there many of them. Full House continues to be a fan favorite around the world, with those who grew up with the show now sharing it with their kids. Therefore, despite critics finding it a little to tame for their tastes, the fans are sure to gobble it up. We can only hope Netflix doesn’t crash in the process.
The show’s premise revolves around DJ Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) who’s been recently widowed and her sister, Stephanie and best friend Kimmy Gibbler, move in two help raise her three sons. Basically, it’s Full House in reverse where the guys helped raise the three girls. The only cast members not returning for the show are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, although the character Michelle is mentioned.
The first season will consist of 13 episodes and insiders at Netflix have already heard rumblings of a season 2 renewal even though the first has yet to premiere. All we can say is…have mercy!
