Netflix unveils new teaser trailer and images for Fuller House

Netflix has unveiled a new teaser trailer for its reboot of the sitcom Fuller House, which arrives next month.
The video gives us a first look at the whole cast of the show, which continues the adventures that began in 1987 on Full House. Now, veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) is recently widowed and living in San Francisco. 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), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson, neurotic 7-year-old Max and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr.
The trailer follows the trend set by the first teaser released by Netflix last month, which consisted of establishing shots of the Tanner home: it offers a brief glimpse of the set, now filled with original cast members, from Bob Saget and John Stamos to Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin.
Billed by Netflix as the “long-awaited sequel” to the 1980s hit, the series (from creator Jeff Franklin) joins the recently released Degrassi: The Next Class in Netflix’s string of revivals of old US series, which will carry little sway with subscribers in the UK or other countries. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the most well-known members of the original ensemble, will not appear in the new incarnation of the show.
For the curious among you, though, Netflix also released a string of images earlier this month for the show, which you can see below the new video. Fuller House premieres on 26th February.
