Revival of ’90s series debuted less than a week ago
Netflix has ordered a second season of “Fuller House” less than a week after the show debuted on the streaming service, TheWrap has learned.
The creators of the show confirmed the news in a tweet on the show’s official account. “Your list will get even fuller. Season 2. Coming soon to @Netflix.”
The original “Full House” went off the air in 1995 after an eight-season run. 21 years later, Netflix’s 13-episode first season centers on recently widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) moving back into her childhood home in San Francisco to raise three sons with the help of sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Garber).
The show opened to largely negative reviews, with TheWrap’s Ned Ehrbar writing, “All in all, it’s unclear who the audience for this series is supposed to be or why Netflix went ahead with ‘Fuller House,’ aside from the fact that it sounds like something grown-ups who grew up on the show would be into — in theory, at least.”
Ehrbar was not alone that assessment. Another critic wrote, “There’s a point where nostalgia becomes more like necrophilia, and ‘Fuller House’ immediately crosses that line.”
Your list will get even fuller.
