The creator of Fuller House gave us Season 2 spoilers — every. single. one.

As the time draws nearer for Fuller House Season 2 to drop on Netflix, it’s only natural that we would be deeply curious about what to expect in the coming season. Ahead of the second season’s release on Dec. 9, SheKnows spoke with Fuller House creator Jeff Franklin about what we can expect to see during the second go-round, including exciting Easter eggs for die-hard fans, new relationships that are in development, the return of some classic Full House friends and even the possibility of a wedding. Wait, a wedding?

Well, before anyone marches down the aisle, there are a few people who actually have to couple up this season.

Bring on the romances

The eldest Tanner women are both about to get embroiled in some serious romances. After cautiously dipping her toe back into the dating pool following the death of her husband, D.J. Tanner will find herself in the middle of a love triangle. When asked why it would appear she’s moving so quickly into a complicated setup, Franklin revealed: “D.J. — we left her in kind of a weird place at the end of Season 1. She was not ready to begin a relationship after having these two guys court her pretty seriously, and suddenly she found herself in this triangle and she kind of opted out of it at the end of the summer, but when we pick her back up, she’s made a decision about who she would like to try a relationship with, but in the meantime, Steve and Matt have found new girlfriends, so that’s how we begin Season 2. […] At the end of Season 2, we will know what her decision is and I think we have a lot of interesting wrinkles as far as that storyline goes.”

While D.J. is busy trying to weigh which of her two love interests is a better fit for her and her sons, younger sister Stephanie is really forging her own path. “Stephanie begins a singing career and she also begins a new and unexpected relationship with Kimmy’s brother, Jimmy Gibbler,” Franklin told us. Jimmy Gibbler, you may recall, is Kimmy’s younger brother, and he’s not the only new face on the scene. While Jimmy is busy shaking things up for Stephanie, there will be plenty of other new faces in Season 2 to accompany the ones we’ve grown to love.

The Tanner squad is seriously growing

Franklin was quick to list some new characters, and trust me, you’re going to be just as excited as I am. “We’re going to meet the girlfriends of Matt and Steve. We’re going to meet a new girl that comes into Max’s life, which is really pretty cool. We’re going to see Paco again — Jaxon’s friend — and Lola’s back, and Taylor’s back, Max’s frenemy. We meet Taylor’s dad in a fun story. We’re going to see a lot of faces from the past. There’s a high school reunion episode where we see Viper and Kathy Santoni. So a lot of faces from D.J. and Kimmy’s past will show up. Also Gia’s in the show this season and Girl Talk is going to make a reunion appearance.”

With all of the hubbub around the new faces showing up in the lives of the Gibblers and Tanners, it may be easy to forget that there are some big changes happening in regard to a particularly old face in the Fuller House crowd: Uncle Joey. It was recently revealed via TV Line that we will finally meet Uncle Joey’s wife and children in the second season. If you’re a fan of Full House, you’d be surprised to learn this, mostly because many of us thought he would always be a bachelor.

Will they somehow bring Michelle’s character back?

Speaking of older faces, is there any chance — at all — that Michelle will come back? “I don’t want to close the door on any ideas, but it’s not my favorite idea to recast that role. […] I’m still hopeful maybe some day they’ll come back and, you know, play with us a little, but I don’t know. It’s not my first choice. [Elizabeth Olsen] is about the only recasting that would make the most sense to me, but I still think it would be great to have the Olsen twins back. It would just complete the picture for all of us. And I think we all would love it. It’s been disappointing so far, but I’m hoping someday that will change.”

The whole season has one overarching theme

Perhaps the most fun part of Fuller House Season 2 is that the entire season will be holiday-centric. For Franklin, this was the best part of planning the season, and assuredly, it will keep the season as fun and festive as the timing of its December release. “We knew we’d be coming back on the air in the last quarter of the year, so we thought it’d be fun to do a bunch of holiday shows and wrap the season around the holidays. We have a huge cast of characters and a very large extended family on the show, so it seemed like a great idea to get everyone together. They’re always feel-good shows, so we started with the idea that we were going to do a bunch of holiday shows. So we do Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. It was a lot of fun. I love the way it all turned out.”

But in the end, it’s all about growth

Aside from all of the old and new characters coming into play in Season 2, all of whom will undoubtedly shake things up no matter what’s in store for them, what becomes most evident while Franklin discusses the new season is that Season 2 is all about growth. While Season 1 of Fuller House was largely focused on nostalgia, and in the face of that, starting afresh, Season 2 is totally focused on moving onward and upward. For viewers and fans, old and new, this kind of direction will mean that only magical things can happen.

Oh, one more thing…

With Stephanie pursuing a singing career, fans will actually get an original song called “Boy Next Door,” because – well, duh – she’s dating the boy that did live next door. The single will be released on iTunes for download on Dec. 9, the same day the season debuts on Netflix. Franklin said there will also be a video “out and about,” so look out for that!

Fuller House makes its Netflix return on Dec. 9. You can help the cast and crew win a 2017 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Premium Comedy by voting through Dec. 15.
