Have mercy! Cast of Fuller House talks reuniting in new behind-the-scenes featurette

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 HouseFuller 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.

Video game adaptations have failed to live up to the expectations of gamers for decades. That's why it's so refreshing that HBO's The Last of Us not only captures the spirit of the game that inspired it, but the show also stands as a work of art in its own right. This series has completely redefined what a video game adaptation can be, largely thanks to the showrunners, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. Mazin previously created the critically acclaimed Chernobyl miniseries for HBO, while Druckmann co-created The Last of Us video game franchise.

Fans will have to wait at least another year for The Last of Us season 2 to arrive. But now that the show is inching closer to restarting production, we can share everything we know about The Last of Us season 2. Next season, the series continues the story of Joel and Ellie while also introducing some important characters from the second game, The Last of Us Part II.
