Candace Cameron Bure says Fuller House is 'racier' than you think
Full House is known as the ultimate family-friendly show, but it looks like the upcoming spinoff won't be quite as squeaky-clean. In a recent interview, Candace Cameron Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner, revealed that viewers can expect Fuller House to be a little "racier" than its predecessor.
As Bure just told TV Line, the upcoming spinoff series will push the boundaries a little more than the original — although she insists it won't ever go too far. "Tonally, the show is very much the same, but it’s updated,” the actress explained. "I'm sure a few of the jokes are a little bit racier now than they would have been in the ’90s, but it’s still nothing that’s inappropriate or that you would feel uncomfortable watching with your kids."
The shift to a slightly more adult tone shouldn't come as a huge surprise considering D.J. and Stephanie Tanner (played by Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) are all grown up now. "We’re three grown women, and I have to say, we’re all pretty good-looking, too. [Laughs]," Bure said of the characters. "We have some cute guys on the show, too, so that’s fun.”
But that's not the only change viewers should expect to see on Fuller House. Bure also says that fans should expect to see a different side of D.J. “She’s in mom mode, full-time,” Bure tells TV Line. “She’s not a teenager anymore, but she’s still really fun. She also has to keep three boys under control without a husband, so she’s got to be a disciplinarian."
Still, those who loved D.J. on the original Full House won't be disappointed. While she might be more grown up now, D.J. is still D.J. "If you were that teenage girl who wished that D.J. was your sister, or wished that she was your best friend, you’ll be really happy with how she is as a mom," Bure said.
One thing that hasn't changed is D.J.'s close friendship with Kimmy. "You’re going to howl over Kimmy!” Bure promised. “Andrea Barber is so funny, it’s ridiculous. She’s even funnier as Kimmy as an adult than she was as a kid." I wonder if she will still call Danny Tanner "Mr. T." We can only hope so!
Fuller House will hit Netflix in 2016.
