Candace Cameron Bure is getting candid about her Fuller House cast. Season two of the popular Netflix reboot has already premiered and most of the show’s loyal fanbase have been binge-watching it all weekend long.
Fuller House’s second season debuted on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 9. As promised in its new trailer, the new season brings plenty of holiday episodes and shifts its focus on family.
Candace Cameron Bure spoke to Vanity Fair about the second season and why the special holiday episodes were the perfect way for the Tanners, Fullers, and Gibblers to reunite.
“I think the whole legacy cast is in three episodes this season, and that’s when they come back,” Bure said. “Because that’s what’s natural for a family – you do get together on Thanksgiving and Christmas, and maybe New Year’s if you’re really close. Also, because of the release, it just lines up so perfect with the holidays. I think it would have been silly … not to celebrate them.”
Candace says she’s excited about the new season and she hopes that fans feel the same way.
“I’m hoping they love it even more than the first season,” she said. “I’m hoping it begins to build and grow. I love hearing the stories. It’s this show that is generational, and it has a legacy of its own.”
Candace Cameron Bure was asked her thoughts on how long the show could last. Some critics have jabbed at the reboot, but it could still break streaming records like the first season.
“I hope there’s a *Fullest House*,” Cameron Bure added. “I hope it never ends. We’ll just keep rebooting it. And then our kids will grow up, and we’ll get to be grandparents. Who knows. As long as people love it, and as long as it’s producing good content, is as long as I’ll be on it.”
Earlier this month, the former child star took to Instagram to show a throwback photo of her alongside her on-screen boyfriend Scott Weinger at her “real life senior prom,” according to People.
“#TBT to my real life senior prom with @scottweigner. [sic] Yup, this really did happen (Awwwww.),” she wrote.
In the flashback photo, Candace is seen wearing a black spaghetti strap floor-length dress, a black pendant choker, a bob haircut, and a corsage on her right wrist while Scott wears a black tuxedo complete with a bow tie. The actor played D.J. Tanner’s boyfriend Steve Hale on the ’90s sitcom and took her to prom in the original series.
Candace Cameron Bure, along with her Fuller House co-stars Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, sat down for an exclusive interview with Glamour about why they are already over the thought of the Olsen twins returning to the series. Bure was the one who admitted that the cast is tired of talking about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in their interviews.
“Stop asking us about Mary-Kate and Ashley,” she said. “There are no hard feelings at all, but let’s just move on. It’s been two seasons already. If they show up, great, but if they don’t, we have this awesome, amazing show that the audience isn’t missing anything because it’s so full as it is.”
Andrea added that the Olsen twins probably would want to move on from the speculation over their appearance on the show.
“I think if you were doing this interview with Ashley and Mary-Kate, they would want to move on too,” she added. “They don’t want to talk about it, and everybody’s happy for each other in their mutual decisions. We’re good.”
There are some returning character favorites like Stephanie Tanner’s high school friend Gia and Kathy Santoni. Not to mention, there will be a New Kids on the Block episode this season. Looks like Candace and the rest of the Fuller House cast is doing just fine without the Olsen twins.
