Fuller House furor is real: Over 10 million views make it Netflix’s most popular trailer

Absence apparently does make the heart grow fonder. Nearly 20 years after the series finale of Full House, the sitcom’s sequel series, Fuller House, has been building up an impressive amount of buzz. Its trailer, released on December 17, has already become Netflix’s most popular YouTube video, racking up over 10 million views in less than a week.

In its first day, the trailer garnered over 5.5 million YouTube views, according to Variety. The number climbed steadily, shortly surpassing all of the Netflix channel’s other videos, including the Orange Is the New Black season 2 preview, the former most viewed video, with over 9.57 million views since April 2014. This bodes well for Netflix, which undoubtedly hopes to convert these trailer viewers into loyal watchers of the show.

Not surprisingly, the trailer’s popularity has extended to Facebook as well, where it has amassed over 949,000 views on Netflix’s page, and around 640,000 on the Fuller House page. Interactions have also been noteworthy; the two pages’ posts combined have amassed over 46,000 likes and 55,000 shares.

Interestingly, the preview itself isn’t overly eventful. While it does bring viewers back to the iconic San Francisco house (or a good replica of it), where we watched so many years of entertainment unfold, none of the characters actually appear onscreen. Nostalgia, however, is dialed up to the max. For example, there’s a shining moment in which Dave Coulier’s Uncle Joey can be heard using his trademark phrase, “Cut. It. Out.”

Based on the response so far, Fuller House seems to have struck a chord. We expect the Tanner family (well, those that aren’t busy in New York building a fashion empire) to get a warm welcome when they return to the screen to help DJ, played by Candace Cameron Bure, as she adjusts to widowhood. Jodie Sweetin returns as Stephanie, along with Andrea Barber (Kimmy), with John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), Coulier, Bob Saget (Danny), and more returning as guest stars.

The hope has continued, with the Fuller House Twitter account recently posting a video of the series’ stars dancing to get fans ready.

Fuller House is set to premiere on February 26, 2016.

Watch the trailer for ‘Travelers,’ Netflix’s new sci-fi/time-travel series
netflix travelers trailer still

The year might be almost over, but Netflix still has more fresh content coming, including the sci-fi series Travelers. With just days until the show's premiere, the streaming service unveiled the its official trailer Tuesday.

The show takes two elements that are common in science fiction -- time travel and the end of the humanity -- and gives them an interesting spin. Instead of characters physically transporting themselves through time, they send consciousness into the bodies of people in the past. Travelers' protagonists do this in the moment the hosts are about to die, all in the name of rewriting history and averting disaster.

Count Olaf will soon be terrorizing the Beaudelaire orphans in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, the latest adaptation of Daniel Handler's beloved book series. This time, Netflix is bringing the books' beloved characters to the small screen with a cast that features Neil Patrick Harris, Joan Cusack, Patrick Warburton, and more. In preparation for the series' January debut, the streaming service has unveiled its first full trailer.

After a previous teaser showed us what to expect from the evil Count Olaf (played by Harris), the new preview gives us a better idea of the plight of the Baudelaire orphans -- Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes), and Sunny. As you'd expect, they will find themselves dealing with some very, well, unfortunate events. It's not easy being without parents, but a diabolical guardian makes it all the more awful.

Season 2 trailer for ‘Fuller House’ promises more of the same
fuller house season 2 premiere date netflix

Just as we wrap up the Halloween festivities, Netflix is taking the opportunity to get viewers excited with a holiday-themed trailer for the second season of Fuller House, its revival of popular ‘80s and ‘90s sitcom Full House.

Judging from the two-minute trailer, season 2 will serve up much of the same, with plenty of cheesiness, laugh-track-worthy one-liners, and throwbacks to the ‘80s and ‘90s. It will deal with DJ Tanner’s (Candice Cameron-Bure) love triangle cliffhanger from season 1, and some new potential love interests for Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), including Kimmy Gibbler’s (Andrea Barber) younger brother.
