Fans of ’90s nostalgia will be excited to learn that Netflix has set a premiere date for its much discussed reboot of family sitcom “Full House.”
The new series, titled “Fuller House,” will launch on Feb. 26 across all Netflix territories. It will follow the original show’s DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure), a recently widowed single mother raising three sons with the help of her younger sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). Former series regulars John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, and Scott Weinger will also return to reprise their roles in a guest star capacity.
The series is produced by Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television on behalf of Netflix. Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and series creator Jeff Franklin serve as executive producers. Stamos also receives a producer credit.
“Fuller House” is Netflix’s latest experiment with reviving a beloved television property. One of the platforms earliest originals was a revival of cult comedy “Arrested Developmen,” which is widely credited with putting the streamer’s TV quality content on the map and kicking off its award-winning dive into original programming. “Fuller House” isn’t the only property Netflix is mining for millennial nostalgia. Earlier this year, the company announced it would also revive the early 2000s WB/CW dramedy “Gilmore Girls” with a four-part miniseries.
