The Full House reunion amps up with new trailer ahead of Fuller House premiere


The Full House revival that no one saw coming, Fuller House, is set to premiere on Netflix this month, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show offered an exclusive look that finally shows nostalgia-struck fans just what this new series will look like. The throwbacks are plentiful, but the most interesting part of the story may just be the actresses who are thrust into their old roles after essentially being out of the public eye since the original series ended 20 years ago.

All of the returning characters appear in the minute-and-a-half trailer (which starts at about the 2:30 mark), revealing a glimpse of the shenanigans to come in various episodes. We see the pivotal moment when Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) decide to move in to help with newly-widowed mom of three DJ (Candice Cameron Bure).

Kimmy, who apparently still dresses and acts like the quirky kid she was in the original show, declares in the trailer that she has waited 20 years to say “welcome home” in the Tanner house (which may have more ties to reality than you’d normally expect). Throwback phrases are a-plenty in the first few scenes, including “have mercey” and “cut it out,” along with Kimmy’s “hola Tannerinos!” Yep, this is really happening.

In the interview with Ellen, Cameron-Bure confirms that the gals have remained friends over the years, which gives high hopes that their chemistry will be evident on screen. We see glimpses of that with the playful friction between Stephanie and Kimmy, and DJ’s reservations about leaving her kids at home for a girl’s night out with her far less conservative sister and friend. Aside from the fact that Sweetin, a bright-eyed five-year-old when the show began, is now towering over a petite Cameron-Bure, the clips will bring you back to the ‘90s as though you never left.

Make sure to watch right to end, when Ellen points out that all three actors have been noticeably absent from the scene over the past two decades since Full House went off the air. Cameron Bure has had the most exposure, but that’s been through appearances on Dancing With the Stars and The View, and with small parts on shows like Make It or Break, a forgotten series about a team of teenage Olympic hopefuls that ran from 2009-2012.

Sweetin, known best for her catch phrase “How rude!” (back when catch phrases were a thing), has had a very minute series of bit parts since 1995. Barber retired from acting altogether after the show ended, and has no acting credits to her name since, aside from a 2012 spoof piece on Funny or Die where she reprised her Kimmy Gibbler role.

We can’t forget actresses and fashion moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who jointly played the youngest tanner sister Michelle, and are the only major players absent from the revival. All the trio would say is that the Michelle will be mentioned on the show, but there aren’t any planned appearances for them at present.

Fuller House will premiere on Netflic February 26.
