Nearly 30 years after Full House closed its doors, the Tanner gang is back.
Of all the nostalgia-driven elements of our current movie and television landscape, there is perhaps no more popular era being mined than the 1980’s. For whatever reason, we all seem to agree that the decade was a fun-filled, wacky, and ultimately carefree time rather than the cocaine-fueled, corporate greed-powered cesspool of American existence that actual history has proven it to be. (Except for Super Mario Bros. and the mall pop stylings of Tiffany, of course, which remain the pinnacles of their respective cultural niches).
Among the facets from the 80’s that millennials and their parents are apparently yearning for more of is Full House, the family sitcom which ran for 192 episodes and launched the careers of John Stamos, the Olsen twins, and nobody else.
Yes, the morally outstanding adventures of the Tanner family have become so popular over the years that Netflix decided to resurrect the series for another run, which will focus on Danny’s grandkids. Ahead of its premiere on February 26th, Netflix dropped a 15-second teaser trailer last week, and today, have released a behind-the-scenes featurette and a slew of photos from the set to hold its fans over in the interim.
“We are a family and we have been since we starting doing the show 28 years ago,” said Jodie Sweetin in the featurette.
“It was kind of like we had never left,” said Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler).
Check out the behind-the-scenes video above, then head below for the official synopsis for Fuller House, via Netflix.
