"Fuller House" has its date with online destiny: Friday, February 26.
Netflix announced earlier Thursday, and offered a fuller accounting of the newcomer as well.
"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). Guest appearances by John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis) and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale)."
"Guest appearances?" Almost certainly exactly what this means: They'll pop in to confer the Good Housekeeping seal of reboot approval, and then be gone.
Meanwhile, it's become obligatory by this point to address the Olsens -- Mary-Kate and Ashley -- whenever one of these "Fuller House" posts require posting. As you know (too well), they will not be part of this revival, There's a new reason offered up every week in the tabloid online press. The latest: Stamos tried to get them fired from "Full House" because they disrupted the set with crying jags.
