Netflix rolled out the third season of Fuller House today, coinciding with the Full House 30th Anniversary, with the original series debuting exactly 30 years ago today. From new additions to the family to regrettable hairstyles, a lot has changed in the last 30 years. To celebrate this milestone, Netflix put together a special thank you from the original cast of Full House.
Netflix debuted this new video today, to get fans ready for the first half of Fuller House Season 3. The video features interviews on the set with stars Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) and Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), who all reminisce about the three decades that the Tanner/Fuller family has endured. Jodie Sweetin reveals that celebrating the 30th Anniversary was "huge" for the whole cast. Andrea Barber also revealed that, since the cast literally grew up on the set of the original series, they could use actual photos of the cast members as kids to decorate the interior of their childhood home.
Andrea Barber also reveals that, in Fuller House Season 3, fans will finally get to see the Kimmy Gibbler home, which seems quite different from the domesticated Tanner home. We get a few brief scenes of the Gibbler home, which has some unique features like a fireman's pole, to get from the second floor to the ground floor, and even a velcro fly wall, which Kimmy is seen trying out in the footage. Candace Cameron Bure also teases that this season is all about "summer fun," teasing there will be twists and turns with the various characters' love lives. We also hear from Bob Saget, who says its a "gift" to be able to jump back into these characters after all these years.
The video also features footage of the cast gathering outside the original Tanner house in San Francisco, that was brought back for this new Netflix. Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) also reveals that it feels "surreal" to be back at that house, for a promotional photo shoot, since there is so much history, while John Stamos reveals that people relate more to the series as the years go on and as the show continues with Fuller House. He even goes on to add that the original Full House was the first Modern Family, while Jodie Sweetin thinks that they'll come back 30 years from now as the "legacy cast," while Candace Cameron Bure admits that none of the cast ever wants to leave this soundstage, while Andrea Barber closes out the video by adding that the cast felt like a family 30 years ago, and it still does today.
It was also confirmed earlier this year that Fuller House Season 3 will be longer than the previous two seasons. While the first two seasons featured 13 episodes apiece, Season 3 will feature 18 episodes, split into nine-episode halves. The first nine episodes of this season are available right now on Netflix, with the back half of the season debuting at some point in December. In addition to this preview, Netflix has also released a new clip, which features Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin) dropping quite the surprise for Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin). Take a look at both videos below, before streaming the first half of Fuller House Season 3.
