‘Fuller House’ Renewed For Second Season
“Fuller House” is being renewed for a second season. The renewal comes five days after the first season of the “Full House” sequel debuted on Netflix. The streaming service tweeted on Wednesday, “Your list will get even fuller. Season 2. Coming soon to @Netflix. #FullerHouse.”
The renewal was actually hinted at on Tuesday night when the series’ star and producer John Stamos responded to a fan named Amelia Dwyer, who tweeted, “Tried to pace myself but about to finish @fullerhouse, @JohnStamos please tell me season 2 is in the works! #FullerHouse #Netflix.” Stamos simply replied, “If you say a little prayer tonight, then maybe tomorrow.” And that woman and countless other fans’ dream indeed came true on Wednesday.
While “Fuller House” received less than stellar reviews from critics, it has still been devoured by fans of the original show and has become a cultural phenomenon. Similarly, while “Full House” remains in syndication and popular among fans, the series was hardly hailed by TV critics. Of course, with a second season comes hope that the the Olsen Twins will reprise the role of Michelle Tanner.
As Gossip Cop reported, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were lightheartedly dissed in the premiere episode of “Fuller House” for being the only main stars not to return for the “Full House” reboot. In the debut episode, Stephanie Tanner, played by Jodie Sweetin, asks her dad Danny (Bob Saget) where her little sister is, to which Danny responds, “Well, Michelle sends her love, but she’s busy in New York running her fashion empire.” And with that, Saget, Sweetin, Stamos, Candace Cameron Bure, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin turned and stared disapprovingly at the camera for 10 seconds. Chances are if Michelle Tanner shows up for the second season, it will be Mary-Kate Olsen, because Ashley has said she no longer feel “comfortable acting.”
“Fuller House” centers around Bure’s character DJ, now a widowed mother of three boys. Sister Stephanie (Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) move in to help raise the children. Yes, it’s just like when Uncle Jesse and Joey moved in to help the widowed Danny raised his three daughters on the original series. One notable difference is that Kimmy is also a mom, too. Netflix has yet to announce the premiere date for the next season of “Fuller House,” but Gossip Cop will update as more Season 2 news is revealed.
