Netflix’s ‘Fuller House’ Gets Premiere Date, Teaser

Have mercy.

Netflix announced a Feb. 26 premiere date for “Fuller House,” its 13-episode spinoff of the ABC classic “Full House.” While most of the first series’ cast is returning, this story focuses on Candace Cameron Bure’s D.J. Tanner-Fuller.

Now a veterinarian and also a widow, D.J. calls upon her extended family to help raise her children — the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson (Michael Champion), neurotic 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr (played by, you got it dude, twins). D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), as well as Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas), are there to help.

Sweetin and Barber also appeared in the original series, as did “Fuller House” guest stars John Stamos (as Jesse Katsopolis), Bob Saget (as Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (as Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (as Becky Katsopolis) and Scott Weinger (as Steve Hale).

Netflix has also released a nostalgia-heavy teaser for the series, showing sets and establishing shots that suggest the Tanners haven’t been big on redecorating since the first series went off the air in 1995.

“Fuller House” hails from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Franklin created the series and he, Robert L. Boyett and Thomas L. Miller serve as exec producers. Stamos is a producer.

This isn’t the only wholesome family series on Netflix’s radar. The digital provider is also reportedly developing a revival of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s “Gilmore Girls,” another story focused on a single parent and her quirky extended family (of sorts).
