Fuller House”, the new comedy that continues the lives of the Tanner family household from the 1987-95 sitcom “Full House,” makes its long-awaited launch on Netflix on Friday, Feb. 26. Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber return to lead this update as D.J.

In recurring roles will be Bob Saget as D.J.’s father Danny, Dave Coulier as Uncle Joey, John Stamos as Uncle Jesse and Lori Loughlin as Aunt Becky.

Like the original “Full House,” all “Fuller House” episodes were filmed in front of a live studio audience.

    • I can’t wait for it personally although it should be on network TV. I loved the original one and I hope this one stays cheesy like the original one. I’m interested to see if it’s actually filmed in 4K like the teaser showed.
