Fuller House is on its way, but for fans who think this is simply a reunion show; Candace Cameron Bure is setting things straight.
Since news broke that the beloved 90s family show Full House was going to be brought back to life, fans have been going crazy over the fact that some of their favorite cast members would be reuniting to bring the spin-off series to life. However, just because the cast members will be reuniting doesn’t mean this show is simply a reunion.
According to Us Weekly, Candace Cameron Bure wants people to know that Fuller House is its own show and not simply a reunion of Full House. During an interview with the Today show, Cameron Bure not only confirmed that the show is a go, but that it is its own show entirely.
“It’s definitely a fresh take,” said Candace Cameron Bure. “We’re not doing the old show, it’s not a reunion. It’s a spin-off show.”
While the show is a spin-off, it does have a very similar take when it comes to the basic set up, according to Cameron Bure.
“It revolves around my character, D.J., who now has three kids but is widowed. She asks her best friend and [her sister] Stephanie to come help her raise her kids.”
According to People, Cameron Bure goes on to say that fans will now get to see what D.J., Kimmy Gibler (played by Andrea Barber), and sister Stephanie (played by Jodie Sweeten), are up to now that they are all in their 30s and helping to raise D.J.’s three young children.
“It’s like a new adventure to me. I’m really excited. In some ways, Full House never stopped. The show has new generations of fans, and I will be forever known as D.J.”
That all being said, can we expect all our favorite cast members to make their way back to the show? There are still quite a few talks going on regarding who will be returning to take on their old roles, but Candace Cameron Bure is hopeful that everyone will return and truly make this a “fuller house.”
“I hope everyone will be on the show,” said Cameron Bure to People. “There are a lot of talks right now. Fans of the show won’t be disappointed. I promise.”
Fuller House is the talk of the town when it comes to upcoming television shows, and with the show set to begin filming this summer, are you planning on tuning in once it hits Netflix?
