Production

Development

In August 2014, reports circulated that Warner Bros. Television was considering a series reboot. John Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the show, headed up the attempt to get the series back into production. Original executive producer Robert L. Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are said to be actively involved.

In April 2015, it was reported that Netflix was close to closing a deal to produce a 13-episode sequel series tentatively titled Fuller House with Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber, and Jodie Sweetin reprising their roles. A representative for Netflix said that the report was "just a rumor". The report stated that Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier were "being eyed" to make cameo appearances in the series. Jeff Franklin was said to be the showrunner and executive producer, along with original executive producers Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett. In response to the report, Bure tweeted, "While you all ponder over whether the Fuller House show is true or is an April Fools joke, check out [link to her upcoming TV movie]", and Stamos tweeted, "Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see."

On April 20, John Stamos appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, confirming the spin-off series had been green-lit. The 13-episode season is scheduled to premiere in 2016 on Netflix. In a parallel to the original series, Fuller House focuses on D.J., who is a recently widowed mother of two boys (and pregnant with a third), with her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy moving in to help raise the boys. The series starts off with a special episode featuring a Tanner family reunion. On April 21, Netflix confirmed the series was in development. Filming of the series began in July 2015 and lasted until November 2015. In December 2015, the series' release date was revealed as February 26, 2016. Later in the month, Carly Rae Jepsen revealed she and Butch Walker recreated the Full House theme song, "Everywhere You Look" (which was originally performed by Jesse Frederick, who co-wrote the song with Bennett Salvay), for the series as its opening theme.

Casting

Although not in the main cast, John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis) confirmed that he will guest star from time to time and will have a role as a producer. The announcement of the series left questions about whether Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (Michelle Tanner) would be involved. A day after the announcement, Mary-Kate mentioned that she and her sister had "just found out about it" and that they intended to contact the show's creators to "see what's happening". Ashley said that she planned to call Bob Saget, to "get his perspective". The sisters chose not to return for the series in May 2015. In July 2015, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said that it was still possible for the Olsen twins to return as Michelle if they wished, though they ultimately did not. In January 2016, it was revealed that Ashley Olsen chose not to return due to the fact that she had not acted in over ten years. Mary-Kate said that she was willing to reprise the role, but was unable to due to scheduling conflicts. Following this, the writers revealed that Michelle would be absent from the series due to the character being very busy launching a fashion career in New York City. In January 2016, it was revealed that the Olsen twins' younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, was contacted to see if she would be interested in portraying Michelle, but she ultimately declined the offer.

In May 2015, Lori Loughlin confirmed that she would be reprising her role as Becky Katsopolis and tweeted a photo from the set two months later confirming that Jesse and Becky were still married. Bob Saget and Dave Coulier have been confirmed to be returning. In June 2015, Netflix was in the process of casting Danny's new wife Teri and Kimmy's ex-husband, Fernando, with Eva LaRue cast as Teri a month later. Also in July 2015, Scott Weinger confirmed that he would be reprising the role of Steve Hale, D.J.'s ex-boyfriend, in the series, and Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit confirmed that they would appear as Nicky and Alex Katsopolis. In August 2015, Bure announced that Michael Campion, Elias Harger, and Soni Bringas were cast as Jackson Fuller, Max Fuller and Ramona Gibbler, respectively. In October 2015, it was revealed that Michael Sun Lee would portray the grown-up version of Nathan Nishiguchi's character Harry Takayama (Stephanie's childhood best friend), while Juan Pablo Di Pace was cast in the recurring role of Fernando.

Reception

Fuller House received generally negative reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes the series has a rating of 31%, based on 32 reviews, with an average rating of 3.5/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "After the initial dose of nostalgia, Fuller House has little to offer to anyone except the original series' most diehard fans." On Metacritic the series has an average score of 34 out of 100, based on 26 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews".

Dan Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter panned the show, calling it "a mawkish, grating, broadly played chip off the Full House block." He also added that "It's doubtful that there will be a more painful 2016 TV episode than the Fuller House pilot, which takes an inexcusable 35 minutes to establish a plot that is just an inversion of the original Full House premise." David Weigand of the San Francisco Chronicle reacted similarly, writing: "The episodes are predictable because they"?re unoriginal and the writing is painful. The canned laughter is perhaps the greatest reminder of the 'good old days'. If only all those recorded voices had something legitimate to laugh at." Maureen Ryan of Variety wrote that the show "continually goes to the well of having cute kids mug for the camera as they practically yell their lines, and just a little of its self-congratulatory, blaring obviousness goes a long way."

Verne Gay of Newsday acted more positively, writing that the show is like "Full House 2.0" and that even though it has the "same premise, same vibe, mostly same cast", it is "a winner, strictly for fans."
