If The X-Files served as any stark reminder, decade-brewing revivals don’t always work so well in a modern context, no matter how many original stars we throw at it. We’ll find out for certain with the Friday premiere of Netflix’s Fuller House, but in the meantime, prepare your eyelids to make it through these first winking clips.
“Tens and Queens. FULL HOUSE,” intones Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner in a new clip montage, opened by a card game with his grandchildren. Shoots back one of D.J.’s brood, “Kings and Aces. FULLER HOUSE.” I refuse to write anything further.
Its Carly Rae Jepsen remix audible below, so reads the official Fuller House synopsis:
In Fuller House, the adventures that began in 1987 on Full House continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) recently widowed and living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas), all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson (Michael Champion), neurotic 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr (Messitt Twins).
Fuller House will premiere all Netflix episodes on February 26. In the meantime, bask in the uncomfortable nostalgia below.
