ABC’s history is rich with shows that made their mark in the “TGIF” era. From the more obscure (but still beloved) Dinosaurs to the more well-known Family Matters chances are if you were a child of the 90’s you knew these shows. Perhaps the most famous of all of them though was Full House.
The comedy ran for eight seasons and was the pinnacle of family friendly entertainment yet still managed to charm a generation. Now comes word that Netflix may revive Full House much in the same way Disney Channel brought back Boy Meets World…with a twist.
Fuller House would center on Candace Cameron’s character D.J. Tanner, who along with lifelong friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) are now raising their own families. Series mainstays Bob Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier are all reportedly in talks for recurring appearances and it would be a safe guess that you’d probably see most of the other members of the Tanner-Katsopolis- Gladstone crew over the show’s run.
Netflix isn’t a stranger to this revival game as it made its bones in the streaming community by bringing back Arrested Development in 2013. While not the critical success the show was when it started, fans welcomed Arrested back with open arms and you can bet Full House fans would be just as excited.
So to celebrate the prospect of a Fuller House series we’ve compiled a list of 30 fun facts you may not have known about the original that any true fan of the comedy would find enjoyable. From the fact that there was almost a 9th season to how the Olsen twins got their breakout role as Michelle Tanner, the real stories are just as fun as the scripted ones.
