Return with us to 1987, when the "Full House" gang had super-big hair and the Olsen Twins were just a gleam in some VHS merchandisers' eye. ABC's "Full House" ran for eight seasons and was wildly popular not just with middle school girls but guys, too.
Netflix's "Fuller House" series debuts February 26, with all 13 episodes and a new set of newborn twins or might or might not someday create their own multimedia empire.
While "Full House" began with the premise of a young widower (Bob Saget as Danny Tanner) raising his children with the help of friends and family. "Fuller House" takes a similar leap; press materials describe it this way, starring:
"Veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) recently widowed and living in San Francisco. D.J.'s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.'s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy's feisty teenage daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas), all move in to help take care of D.J.'s three boys -- the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson (Michael Champion), neurotic 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr. (Messitt Twins).
Guest appearances are promised from John Stamos, Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin and Scott Weinger. Alas, no Mary-Kate and Ashley.
