The first season debuted at the end of February as a Netflix exclusive. Some of Netflix’s other original shows include Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, and Bloodline, among others.
Netflix did not say when Fuller House‘s second season will premiere, only that it’s “coming soon.” The first season spanned 13 episodes, all of which were released on February 26.
Reactions to Fuller House have been mixed, from critics and fans alike. Netflix has not shared any viewership numbers for the show, but they were apparently good enough.
Full House creator Jeff Franklin is also behind Fuller House. The new show follows the widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (played by Candace Cameron Bure) as she raises her three children. Sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and the former-neighbor Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber) move in with DJ at the Tanner home in San Francisco to help raise her children.
Cameron Bure, Sweetin, and Barber are the leads in the new show, while Full House stars Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin have smaller parts. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen do not appear in the series, a point that is referenced in a fourth wall-breaking segment in Fuller House‘s first episode.
Franklin told Variety that he pitched the concept for Fuller House to networks for about a decade before Netflix finally stepped up.
“I knew that this kind of excitement was going to be there, but nobody else seemed to get it,” he said. “I was pitching to networks that Full House reruns were beating every night â€¦ For some reason, a whole bunch of networks didn’t understand the hunger that was out there for this show. It was baffling me. Netflix finally stepped up, and that’s why it’s happening now.”
