Netflix’s new series, Fuller House, will land in February 2016.
The streaming giant announced the release date today, along with a teaser trailer for show, which continues the adventures that first began in 1987’s Full House. No, we don’t either.
The series catches up with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure), recently widowed and living in San Francisco, as 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 (Soni Nicole Bringas), all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — the rebellious 12-year-old, Jackson (Michael Champion), neurotic 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr (Messitt Twins).
The show marks something of a left-field move for Netflix, but it has never shied away from wooing new, older audiences to its service, with Grace and Frankie (starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda) recently earning a Golden Globe nomination for Tomlin – and, as a result, a commission for a third, as well as a second, season. Netflix is also not adverse to rebooting old comedies: Wet Hot American Summer, a film that wasn’t even released in the UK before this year, also had a Netflix spin-off in the form of the series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day at Camp.
Fuller House will span 13 episodes and is produced by Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin are the executive producers of the series, which was created by Franklin. John Stamos will also produce and will have a guest appearance on the show as Jesse Katsopolis, alongside a range of other guest stars.
All episodes of Fuller House will be released on Friday 26th February 2016. Here’s the teaser trailer:
