Thirty years ago, the Tanner family was introduced to America in “Full House.” Three years ago, the Tanners returned to television via Netflix with the spin-off series “Fuller House.”
And now, in time for the thirtieth anniversary, the family is back for season 3. Both shows were created by producer Jeff Franklin. The original series won a number a Kids’ Choice and Young Artists awards in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
“In the spinoff series, ‘Fuller House,’ life can take you into unexpected directions and also back into familiar territory when veterinarian and recently widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) finds herself living in her childhood home with younger sister and aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and DJ’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). The women reunite to help support one another navigate careers, parenting and relationships with the kind of love and humor you can only get from the people you grew up with. The Tanner childhood house is fuller than ever though with not only DJ’s three boys — the awkward 13-year-old Jackson, neurotic 7-year-old Max and baby Tommy Jr. — but also Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona and Kimmy’s not so estranged ex-husband Fernando all under the same roof.”
The spin-off series tapped into nineties nostalgia and immediately became a hit at Netflix. Season 2 was announced just days after the first season launched. Season 3 followed suit.
The second season ended with a proposal, an adoption. And, as was always the parent show’s specialty, misunderstandings and arguments and special messages. Season 3 will finally answer some big questions about who’s engaged and who is going to be the godfather of the newest Tanner.
You can watch season 3 of “Fuller House” when it hits Netflix on September 22.
