You guys, stop what you are doing right now — the first teaser trailer for Fuller House is here, and you’re going to want to watch this.
But, in full disclosure, it is fully likely that getting a glimpse of Netflix’s Full House reboot will choke you up a little. Or a lot… whatev. You’ll get no judgment from me.
At just over a minute long, the trailer doesn’t reveal much, but it’s enough to tug on the ole heartstrings. Maybe it’s the fact that we now know the family who first won over America’s collective heart in the 1987 ABC series will be returning to the Tanners’ original San Francisco home.
Perhaps it’s hearing some of our favorite childhood TV characters just beyond the familiar front door or seeing a golden retriever puppy — a clear nod to Comet! — waiting to greet them.
And maybe it’s the fact that the trailer is set to Miranda Lambert’s moving and oh-so-apropos song, “The House That Built Me.” Could lyrics like, “I thought if I could touch this place or feel it/This brokenness inside me might start healing,” hint at how hard the show will be hitting us in the feels come Feb. 26, 2016?
It’s definitely possible.
Sources say the spin-off will see Candace Cameron Bure reprise her role as daughter D.J. Tanner and echo her father’s history — a recent widow, she is pregnant and has three sons when she moves home. Little sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and BFF4L Kimmy (Andrea Barber) move in along with their own kids to help get Deej back on her feet.
Sadly, word has it Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have no plans at the time to give us the Michelle fix we’ve all been waiting decades for, but the producers reportedly intend to explain Michelle’s absence.
Although the show is reportedly going to focus mainly on those character’s lives, most of the beloved Full House characters are set to cameo, including Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), John Stamos (Uncle Jesse, swoon), Becky (Lori Loughlin), Joey (Dave Coulier) and Steve (Scott Weinger).
So, there you have it. The Tanner family is coming home. Ah, all seems right with the world.
