The house down the street just got fuller, ladies and gentleman, because the American sitcom “Full House” is back with a twist.
DJ Tanner-Fuller was, at the end of the original series, only 18 and graduating high school. In the revival, she is a 40 year-old widow and mother of three. Her kids become too much to handle on her own, so she invites her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy to live with her, just as her father had done in the original series.
The setting has not changed and the tall white and grey house with the red door is shown in the trailer, which shows the famous Golden Gate Bridge and the green lawn across the street from her house. The audience gets to see the kitchen and the living room with so much detail that was not in the original series. A puppy is scratching at a door when it hears the voices of the old cast, even one of Joey Gladstone’s catchphrases, “Cut. It. Out.”
Most of the original cast will be shown in all 13 episodes of the Netflix series, except for Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, which means no Michelle Tanner.
Nevertheless, the cast will be coming back better and ever with John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, as an executive producer.
There is much promise with the new series, which will be released on Netflix on February 26, which is just around the bend. Don’t forget to catch it when it released and see just how much fuller this house has become.
