Fuller House finally has a real trailer. After a series of not-so-meaty teasers, Netflix has finally released a full-length trailer for the Full House spinoff, which debuted exclusively on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The Ellentube website also shared the Fuller House trailer after three of the show’s stars appeared with her on the daytime chatfest on Tuesday.
Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber, who will reprise their roles as D.J. Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, and Kimmy Gibbler, respectively, sat down with DeGeneres to talk about Fuller House and premiere the trailer. The long-awaited full-length clip was loaded with familiar faces, catchphrases, and …furniture? Seriously, is that the same plaid couch and kitchen table the Tanners had in the ’90s? Have mercy!
Of course, leave it to Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) to deliver the most epic line in the Fuller House trailer.
“Before we eat, I have something very important to say, okay?… Damn, we all still look good!”
In addition to premiering the Fuller House trailer, Ellen asked the cast the burning question about the missing Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who opted to sit out the debut season of the spinoff series. When talking about the possibility of Fuller House being picked up by Netflix for a second season, Cameron-Bure said the door is still open if the Olsen twins ever want to return to the Full House family.
Fans will surely miss Michelle Tanner (played by both Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in the original series), but it will be explained in the spinoff that the youngest Tanner sister is living In New York, 3,000 miles from her San Francisco clan. Last month, series creator Jeff Franklin told reporters at the TCA press tour that he tried to get the Olsen twins to appear on Fuller House, but they weren’t interested.
“I tried. We all tried to persuade them to come and play. They decided not to at this time. We’re hopeful at some point in the future that they’ll change their minds and come back. Everybody else is back, and I’m sure we’ve all had family reunions and not everyone shows up, but we still love them and the door is always open. I hope it happens.”
Twenty-one years after the original series ended, Fuller House is one of the most highly anticipated spinoff series of all time. A previous trailer for the show gave fans just a peek at the Tanner’s Victorian house and their dog Comet, while another teaser featured the clan assembled in the living room. But the new trailer actually shows scenes from the new episodes, giving fans a much better idea of what to expect. (Spoiler alert: Kimmy is still stuck in the ’90.)
The premise for Fuller House centers on a widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure), who raises her three sons with the help of her still-single sister Stephanie (Sweetin) and her BFF Kimmy Gibbler (Barber) and Kimmy’s teen daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas). D.J.’s sons Jackson (Michael Champion), Max (Elias Harger) and newborn Tommy Jr. will round out this very full house.
But with D.J, now a widow, does that mean her high school boyfriend Steve (Scott Weinger) could be back in the picture? Cameron-Bure told Entertainment Weekly that D.J.’s former flame will turn up on Fuller House.
“Steve makes a few appearances on the show. I’m sure they talk about old love, and listen, D.J. is widowed and it’s been a while since her husband passed away. She’s thinking about dating.”
All 13 episodes of Fuller House will be available to stream Feb. 26 on Netflix. But for now, take a look at the Fuller House trailer.
