Netflix’s Fuller House may never bring Michelle back to the fold, but another ‘90s TV icon could be waiting in the wings. A curious reference from the Season 3 finale brings Family Matters’ Steve Urkel back into play, and producers have actually discussed bringing the famed character to San Francisco for a visit.
Full House is now officially too old to live with its parents. Thankfully, Netflix successor series Fuller House doesn’t pay rent, so there’s nothing (too) creepy or sad about returning to that iconic house for Season 3, especially as the new trailer commemorates the show’s 30th anniversary.
It’s increasingly difficult to remember any weeknight as a TV destination, let alone Friday. Nonetheless, Hulu will let you relive your TGIF nostalgia, adding full seasons of everything from Full House to Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper.
The first season of Netflix Full House revival Fuller House proved a major hit for the streaming service, and even if Season 2 couldn’t quite match its success, the Tanners will give it a third shot regardless. The series has officially been renewed for Season 3, arriving in 2017.
The absence of Michelle seemed not to hamper Netflix’s Fuller House revival, which only made the omission more notable with bizarrely bitter meta-references to the Olsen twins. One surprising story saw John Stamos admitting he’d approached Elizabeth Olsen for the role, but according to Fuller House bosses, a recast Michelle was never in question.
Blow through Fuller House Season 1 in the span of a day, and need a new fix? You got it, dude. The short turnaround of sitcom production makes it relatively easier for shows like Fuller House to crank out new episodes, and according to John Stamos, Season 2 is coming “a lot sooner than we released last year’s.”
There’s a persistent air of meta-awareness circulating through the Tanner household in Netflix’s Fuller House, whether acknowledging the Olsen’s absence, or the series’ history, that it’s only fair the reviews follow suit. As such, John Stamos took Fuller House’s worst reviews to TV as well, sharing a few on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
There’s a certain oddball charm to Netflix Full House revival Fuller House, as enough subscribers seem to have discovered this past weekend, that the streaming giant is already locking down a second mortgage. That’s right, the Fullers will be back in the House for Season 2, regardless of your appeals to Netflix’s humanity.
Netflix’s Fuller House will drag the past kicking and streaming onto your devices as early as this Friday, but it won’t bring the Olsen twins any closer to reprising the role that once made them famous. Now, said fashion moguls have at last spoken out on declining the invitation, owing to bad timing and discomfort.
The days of the family-friendly three-camera sitcom may feel lost to time, but darn it all if Netflix’s Fuller House isn’t going to hijack that San Francisco trolley right into a black hole. Return to the ‘90s, come hell or high water, with a new behind-the-scenes Fuller House featurette, chock full of all the studio audience and catchphrases you can handle!
