Anyone who thought “Fuller House” — the sequel to “Full House” focusing on D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) and her own patched together family unit — was something they could put off thinking about (or writing about) until the new year just got a cold bucket of water dumped on them this morning, in the form of the first teaser trailer for the quickly-approaching Netflix original series.
Luckily, the poignant video paid loving homage to what’s come before, astutely teasing what’s to come by reminding audiences of the memories built into the original series. We don’t get to see a single shot of footage from “Fuller House,” but we do get a slow-building reintroduction to the old Tanner family home, complete with the dog welcoming them home as we hear D.J. & co. getting ready to move back in.
What’s there might not be as darkly personal as “BoJack Horseman” creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s rejected “Fuller House” episode pitch, but it does appear the series is being handled with a loving embrace. Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:
In “Fuller House,” the adventures that began in 1987 on “Full House” continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) 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 (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). Guest appearances by John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis) and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale).
“Fuller House” debuts all 13 episodes on Netflix February 26. Watch the teaser trailer above.
