Fan enthusiasm for Fuller House leading up to the show’s premiere has been impressive, to say the least, and Netflix has wisely continued to feed it. The streaming service released a featurette Tuesday that goes behind the scenes with the stars of the highly anticipated series, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barbara, plus their former Full House co-stars.
In yet another poignant video, the cast talks about reuniting nearly 30 years after the original family sitcom premiered. Having worked together for Full House‘s eight-season run, the group had become like family, so the reunion was apparently an extremely positive experience for all. “Looking around the room, seeing all of those wonderful faces that I love, was a moment that you get maybe once or twice in life,” says Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey) in the featurette.
The audience can expect more than just familiar faces when the Full House sequel series premieres. “Fuller House carries the same emotional, loving, family tone through the show that the original did,” says Cameron Bure (D.J.) in the video. Sweetin (Stephanie) also highlights the similarities to Full House‘s plot, calling it “the reverse” of the new series’ premise.
Like Full House, Fuller House focuses on a recently widowed parent who gets help from family and friends. In the case of the upcoming series, D.J. will have lost her husband, so her sister Stephanie and childhood friend Kimmy (Barber) will move in with her and her three sons. The three women and their offspring (Kimmy has a daughter) will be the focus of the new show, but their extended family will stop by in the first episode. Fans can expect to see Uncle Joey, Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), Danny (Bob Saget), and Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin) welcome the girls home.
The first season of Fuller House will be available on Netflix on February 26.
