America has a few national treasures. Full House is most definitely one of them. And so Netflix's first full trailer for the upcoming reboot is nothing short of perfection. It's also amazing in that it is brimming with 90s nostalgia.
Netlfix announced last spring that it was going to bring back Full House, a sitcom that originally aired on the ABC network from 1987 to 1995. The streaming service is producing the reboot as an original series, and it brought on board the show's creator, Jeff Franklin. The new show will be called Fuller House, and it has just been given its first full-length trailer.
We already saw a teaser trailer, but this first full trailer, which debuted on Ellen Degeneres's show, is everything. We get a better look the concept as well as most of the returning original cast - excluding the Olsen twins as Michelle Tanner, of course, which we're all waiting on bated breath to see if she is alive and well somewhere in the Full/Fuller House universe.
From what we can tell, DJ Tanner has a few kids now and is a single mom - and that seems to be a catalyst that encourages her sister, Stephanie, and best friend, Kimmy Gibbler, to move into your favourite San Francisco painted lady in order to help Tanner out a bit. The actual clip starts around 2:27 in the video below; make sure to skip the cringey Ellen interview.
The full trailer will be released later today. It's like Christmas all over again, especially with so many other 90s shows getting reboots recently, such The X-Files, Boy Meets World, Twin Peaks, and even a new Rugrats movie.
UPDATE: And here's the first full trailer, from Netflix directly:
