Fans of the show Full House remember everything about the show’s opener, from the catchy lyrics to the infectious tune, so when Fuller House unveiled their new logo for the Netflix series, fans pointed out that the logo looks very familiar.
The logo of Fuller House is almost identical, down to the font and bright yellow that only signature shows of the ’90s had. What this tells us is that those behind Fuller House don’t have grand plans to modernize the ’90s favorite. Simply put, Netflix is not going to fix what’s not broken.
During the Television Critic’s Association, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos told a room of reporters that Fuller House is going to have a very nostalgic spirit.
He said the show is “very much in the spirit of the original. At the taping of the [first] episode this past week, when the cast shows up on stage the audience reacts immediately and the actors have fallen right back into the roles. It’s very much in the same spirit but with a modern take on Full House.” It sounds like Netflix really wants that built-in fan base that the original show had.
Of the first taping of the show, Sarandos said, “It’s a show that is very much in the spirit of the original. At the taping of the [first] episode this past week, when the cast shows up on stage the audience reacts immediately and the actors have fallen right back into the roles. It’s very much in the same spirit but with a modern take on Full House.”
Since the announcement of Fuller House, we learned that the show will center on the older Tanner ladies DJ (Candace Cameron Bure) and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin). The Tanner ladies are all grown up and DJ has two boys. DJ’s husband recently passes away so she has the task to raise her boys alone, until her rock star sister Stephanie comes back to live with DJ and her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
Of course the ladies will be joined by old recurring cast members such as Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), Joey (Dave Coulier), and Danny Tanner (Bob Saget). In addition, Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin) and DJ’s ex boyfriend Steve (Scott Weinger) will also return to the show.
It’s not yet known whether the youngest Tanner daughter, Michelle Tanner (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen), will join the show.
Fuller House will debut in 2016 on Netflix and will have a 13-episode order.
