Nostalgia-driven Fuller House was a massive hit for Netflix earlier this year, so much so that second season was greenlighted just a few days after the first one came out. Fans now know they’ll be able to get another dose of the Tanners before 2016 is even over.
Series star Candace Cameron Bure announced recently on The View that the second season of Fuller House would be debut on December 9. She said that this upcoming season is “very holiday themed with a Halloween show, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, and lots of family” and that the series would begin to even more focus on the younger Tanners. Original cast members (Bob Saget, John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, and Dave Coulier) are indeed expected back, but only for guest appearances.
If you missed the first season (which is still on Netflix), Fuller House continues the story of the Tanner family from 1987’s Full House. DJ. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) is a recent widow raising her kids in their iconic San Francisco home, with her younger sister Stephanie and life-long best friend Kimmy helping along the way.
Like the first season, the second season promises celebrity cameos. We know New Kids on the Block members Joey McIntyre, Jordan and Jonathan Knight, and Danny Wood will appear. There’s also a small casting change for season 2, as Hal Sparks (you may know him from Queer as Folk) will replace Jason Marsden as ex-boyfriend Nelson Burkhard.
