Candace Cameron Bure, an actress most famous for her role as DJ Tanner on Full House, recently had an interview where she talked about Fuller House. She reports that the production is going great, and this is what is known about Fuller House Release Date and Cast.
When Candace Cameron Bure recently appeared on HuffPost Live on Monday, mostly to promote her new book: Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction, the topic of Fuller House, the sequel to the nineties TV show Full House, came up.
Fuller House will be a straight to Netflix show that will have 13 episodes, at least for its first season. Candace reported that the people who have seen the first episodes of the show "embraced the Full House reboot with open arms". She also reports that "the [studio] audiences were going crazy" and "it's exceeded all of our expectations". It certainly sounds like a second season could be on its way with this positive response.
According to E Online, the original premise of Fuller House begins with tragedy, as Candance Cameron Bure's character, DJ Tanner-Fuller, has found herself a widow and expecting her third child. It was eventually decided that this would be too heavy a beginning, so it was decided to allow more time to pass as the widowed DJ asks her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), a new single mother, as well as her sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) to move in and help raise her family.
A quote from Candace also appeared on US Weekly about the show: "The original show was about three guys raising children, and now it's about three women raising four children. Because of the three women [D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy], we all have the very different parenting styles, which lends itself to different story lines. I'm the single mom of the group, so that's loaded in itself. D.J. is probably the most strict and scheduled of the group."
In case you are wondering, Fuller House is meant to be a family-friendly show just like its predecessor. Just because it is a Netflix show, it won't be racy like Orange is the New Black. Of course, these main characters from the original Full House will be back, which includes Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, and John Stamos. Even Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit and Dylan Tumoy Wilhoit, who played the twins (Alex and Nicky) from the original show will have an appearance.
As for the other twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, they may or may not show up. Ted Sarandos, Netflix's streaming content officer, revealed that the twins "are teetering on whether or not they'll be around", according to TV Line.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were twins who played the same character, Michelle Tanner on Full House. It is a trick in Hollywood to cast twins to play a younger role, so when one kid is upset or can't do a scene, they can always put the twin in the scene and the viewers are none the wiser. The two twins were credited as "Mary-Kate Ashley Olsen" on Full House, and they only appeared together on screen in one episode, which was the final episode.
A Fuller House executive producer, Robert L. Boyett has had this to say about the return of the Olsen twins: "It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards Fuller House."
Here is what Candace had to say on the return of the Olsen Twins on HuffPost: "We would love it if one of them came back and was on the show even for a bit. I totally respect their decision if they didn't want to come back; they haven't acted in 10 years, they're in the fashion industry. But the door's always open!"
Nineties nostalgic Audiences should expect to see Fuller House come to Netflix sometime in 2016. It would be surprising if the Olsen Twins did not make an appearance in the first season, and it would also be hard to keep that a secret.
