In what might be called the greatest ‘90s revival of our generation, Fuller House is about to drop — and Netflix has posted the “first look” pictures to prove it.
All of us former ‘90s kids can finally let out a collective sigh of relief. Based on these Netflix sneak peek pictures alone, Fuller House looks kind of amazing. Yes, we were all a little worried that our ‘90s nostalgia might be destroyed in one fell swoop if Netflix didn’t pull off this Full House reboot just right, but thankfully, all the Tanners seem to be doing just fine. And of course, Kimmy Gibbler’s there, too.
As you might have expected (and hoped for), the first official Netflix pictures of Fuller House show America’s favorite family all grown up. We have DJ, Stephanie, Uncle Jesse, Aunt Becky, Danny, Joey, and Kimmy Gibbler — minus only the lovable Michelle.
If you haven’t caught the basic rundown of Fuller House yet, here it is: The ‘90s are over, and the Tanner girls are older now. DJ Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) is a widowed mom of three, similar to her dad, Danny’s original story. DJ’s younger sister, Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), is an aspiring musician, and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) is still as wild as ever and also happens to be a single mom.
Now here’s where things get interesting — the three women decide to live together under one roof in the original Tanner family house to pitch in and help the newly widowed DJ raise her kids. We’re also going to be treated to multiple appearances from the whole gang, including Danny (Bob Saget), Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), Aunt Becky (Lori Louglin), and Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier).
As for the details of exactly what’s going to go down when two Tanners and a Gibbler come back together, well, you’ll have to watch and see for yourself. The first season of Fuller House premieres on Netflix on February 26, and if the viral response to the show’s first official pictures is any indication, you probably won’t be the only one binge-watching this epic reunion all in one day.
And if you happen to be a parent who is also a Full House fan, the deal gets even sweeter. Fuller House might be a guilty pleasure for everyone in the 30 to 40-something age bracket, but — lest we forget what ‘90s sitcoms were all about — it’s also a family-friendly show that caters to the kids. For those times when you need to teach your kids not to cut class (like when DJ tried to unsuccessfully skip school and meet Stacy Q) or even to create their own adorable catchphrase (How rude!), just turn on a TBS rerun, and your hard work is done.
As parents, we’re always trying to avoid the dreaded screen time, but really, we could do a lot worse than a wholesome and nostalgic ‘90s reboot. Everyone’s going crazy for Fuller House because they just don’t make family sitcoms like this anymore — complete with a laugh track and a few life lessons at the end. All that’s missing is the awkward clothes and the mall bangs, but Fuller House is still guaranteed to give you a few hours of good, clean fun.More On
