Second season of Fuller House? You got it, dude

fuller house netflix renew season 2 4
Less than a week after the first season debuted on Netflix, Full House revival show Fuller House has already been renewed for a second season, reports Variety. Since Netflix does not share specific ratings data, we don’t know how many tuned in to see the ’90s era revamp, but it appears that enough viewers have gotten on board to warrant another run of 13 episodes.

The Netflix original follows the story of eldest Tanner daughter DJ (Candice Cameron-Bure) who’s left to take care of her three kids on her own following the death of her husband. Similar to the situation with her own father in the original series (played by Bob Saget), her younger sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) decide on a whim to move in and help out.

While reviews of the show have been largely mixed (OK, mostly bad), there’s no denying the publicity that it has generated. And even those that cringe as they watch describe it much like a car wreck: they just can’t look away. “I Want to Hate ‘Fuller House,’ But I Just Can’t,” reads the headline of Forbes’ review of the show, which goes on to call it “the ultimate form of nostalgia-bait.”

Jeff Franklin, who created the original show that aired from 1987 to 1995, also created Fuller House. He was reportedly shopping a sequel for the past decade, until Netflix finally swooped in and made it happen.

The opening montage includes bits from the original series, and the original theme song, Everywhere You Look, now sung by Carly Rae Jepsen. The pilot episode saw the return of every major character, with the exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who jointly played the youngest Tanner daughter Michelle in the original. Credited with recurring roles are John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Rebecca Katsopolis), Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit (Nicky and Alex Katsopolis), and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale).

While Netflix likely won’t be releasing data on how many people actually watched any time soon, with so many reviews of the show, albeit negative ones, it’s clear that many people tuned in. The question is: will that viewership continue beyond the initial curiosity of how a super-cheesy ‘90s sitcom translates into a super-cheesy 21st century one? Netflix is obviously banking on it.

In Netflix's Too Hot to Handle, 10 singles sign up for a dating show they think will result in unlimited hookups. One contestant believes he's going on a "floating sex palace." Too Hot to Handle begins every season as a fake dating show to trick the contestants into thinking they're about to have the time of their lives. Season 5's mock dating show, Love Overboard, is set on a beautiful yacht as the contestants believe it's a party tour of the Caribbean.

However, the fun doesn't last once LANA, the AI cone voiced by Desiree Burch, reveals itself, explaining the rules of Too Hot to Handle. The men and women must complete various workshops without conducting sexual activities, including kissing. If the contestants break the rules, the grand prize of $200,000 is reduced.

This Channing Tatum film is the most popular movie on Netflix. Here’s why you should watch it
Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx in White House Down.

Jamie Foxx has done it again. White House Down, an action film from 2013, is now the most popular movie on Netflix. And if you've confused White House Down with Olympus Has Fallen, another action flick from 2013, then it's an easy mistake to make because both films essentially have the same premise. Terrorists have made a brazen attack on the White House, and only an unexpected hero can rise to save the President and the nation itself.

White House Down is far from a perfect movie, but there are at least three reasons why it's great popcorn entertainment, and why it has earned its place at the top of Netflix's movie chart. Now, we're going to tell you why you should watch White House Down so you can discover its charms for yourself.

And Just Like That… season 2, episode 3 release date, time, channel, and plot
Carrie listens to a broadcast in And Just Like That.

After six successful seasons and two terrible movies, the Sex and the City universe expanded with the addition of And Just Like That..., which serves as a sequel and series revival. Premiering in 2021, And Just Like That... reintroduced the world to Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), three of the leading women in Sex and the City. The original series focused on the friendship, sex lives, and social issues of these then-thirtysomethings living in New York City.

And Just Like That... , however, picks up 11 years after Sex and the City 2, with Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte all in their 50s. Despite the fact that they're older, the same friendship, fashion, and relationship drama are still as present as ever. And Just Like That... became Max's most-watched series debut at the time of its December 2021 premiere. Originally conceived as a miniseries, the overwhelming popularity led to a season 2 renewal. What time does episode 3 stream? Find out below!
