That’s the question on everyone’s mind as the show recently announced the beginning of production on their second season.
When news about the series re-vamp initially broke, fans of the original phenomena, Full House, were ecstatic at the report of their favorite characters coming back into their living room. Multiple people, myself included were ready and waiting to watch and possibly knock the show with bad reviews. News that the reboot wouldn’t include the beloved Michelle Tanner played, by fashion moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen made many anticipate a huge crash and burn. While I didn’t initially jump on the wagon and waited for quite a while to watch the show I was pleasantly surprised to have little complaints on the show.
For a quick recap, the new show centers around the misadventures of eldest daughter D.J Tanner, portrayed by Candance Cameron Bure, as she manages her three sons lives after the recent death of her husband. Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweeten) and Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber) add to the main cast. Also on the show are newcomers Soni Nicole Bringas, Michael Campion, Elias Hager, Dashiell and Fox Messitt, who collectively comprise the children of D.J and Kimmy. The show kept its central motif of crazy antics by the kids that result in a greater life lesson and group hug *yawn*. But the underlying storyline that has all the older viewers buzzing is whether or D.J chooses her old flame, always hungry and less than brilliant Steve or the new love interest on the scene. That love-triangle is so juicy I can’t wait for season 2.
After the huge success from the first 13-episode season, Netflix decided to renew the show for a second run

Due to the somewhat patchy start of the first season to set up the premise of the show, it’ll be interesting to see what direction they take to start the new season and what the overarching plot will be that will carry on throughout the season. Maybe a love triangle for our very own Stephanie Tanner? We can only hope.
As a viewer myself I can truthfully say the show kept the entire original and slightly cringe-worthy, but great life lesson plot line. While some have criticized the more mature direction of the show, implementing topics like sexting, boob jobs, and dating apps allow the show to transcend multiple audiences and stay relevant through the constantly evolving times. I mean, we can’t all be as date successful as the devilishly handsome Uncle Jesse, these days we need a little help from Tinder.
The second season will have viewers pick up right after The Bachelorette-like ending to the first season, concerning the love triangle of D.J Tanner. Sweeten, has dropped hints that this upcoming season will introduce a new love for her as Stephanie Tanner gets a serious love interest of her own. I know I’m excited too, but sadly we’ll have to wait quite a while to see how the saga continues.
Since it took ten months from initial announcement till the release of season 1, as well as scheduling conflicts of the main cast Bure, Sweeten, and original cast guest stars, it’ll probably take a similar amount of time for season 2 to premiere as well.
That said we’ll most likely be headed towards 2017 before we see Fuller House return to Netflix.
