Netflix’s Full House spinoff Fuller House (haha) is now filming! And the cast is celebrating by posting about their return on Instagram.
A brief catch up: Fuller House is a 13-episode series coming to Netflix in 2016 starring several stars from the original series. The episodes are filming in front of a live audience, according to comments from the actors, and production began over the weekend.
Netflix says “the adventures that began in 1987 on Full House continue [in Fuller House], with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure) pregnant and recently widowed, living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys — the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and her soon-to-arrive baby.”
John Stamos, who plays Uncle Jesse, has joined Fuller House for at least a couple of the episodes as a “guest star”. He’ll also serve as an executive producer.
The actor tweeted the following photo in which he shows off his sideburns while reading Fuller House’s script:
Candace, who plays D.J., shared this photo of herself nervously/excitedly holding the script:
Fellow co-star Andrea Barber, who plays Kimmy, shared this photo of her script and her (smelly?) feet — a reference to the original Full House that fans will surely appreciate:
Prior to the start of filming the cast all gathered for a table read. It was another opportunity for the cast to share Instagrams of their scripts (did Netflix encourage them all to do this?). Take Dave Coulier for example, who fans will remember as Uncle Joey:
Netflix has yet to reveal when exactly Fuller House will be airing in 2016.
