First, we got a teaser.
It featured the picturesque views of San Francisco that we remembered from the opening credits of the original series. It also had the voices for the characters that were making their return to the show in the background. It ironically did not show us any of the characters themselves, leaving us to speculate and play the waiting game.
Then, we got a trailer.
In the very beginning of the trailer, we see an exchange between D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) and her sister, Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), with D.J confessing that she cannot believe she is moving back into her old place, and Stephanie calling it “the circle of life." And we felt all the feels.
The plot seems to revolve around the sisters and longtime friend Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber).
Besides the location, house and familiar faces, there are a lot of changes in the Tanner family home. The children that we grew up laughing and learning with are now parents!
The cast features some new faces that will take some getting used to.
Because Netflix wanted to pull on our heartstrings even more, the trailer also featured a preview of heartwarming and hilarious scenes from the new show with a slight variation of the theme song “Everywhere You Look” playing in the background. Cue the tears.
I was happy to see that the trailer included the same humor, cheesiness, characters and sayings that I loved about the original series that began in 1987.
There are some aspects of the show that, for better or worse, will simply be different.
Watching the trailer felt nostalgic, but the new show seems to have a slightly different feel. All the things we love about the old show are still there but moved into the 21st century, reminding us that we are no longer in the 1990s (sob!)
Everything feels a bit more modern, getting rid of that old-timey feel that reminds us of shows like "Full House," "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," and "George Lopez" that were such a vital part of our Nick at Nite.
The trailer also left us with another question: Where’s Michelle Tanner? At the end of the trailer, we got a sneak-peak of the sisters calling Michelle on the phone.
According to US Weekly, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen didn’t sign on to the show and Bob Saget didn’t try to convince them to put their lives on hold to make time for it.
The third Tanner sister will still be incorporated into the plot, making the audience believe that she is in New York building her fashion empire.
In the meantime, members of the cast have been on talk shows, continuing the build-up. They recently appeared on Ellen, gushing about how special it was to bring their children to the original set.
The series will have 13 episodes, but on Ellen, Candace, Jodie and Andrea all alluded to the fact that they hope there will be a season two. The gang seems to be ecstatic to be back together filming after so much time apart from the set.
So plan your viewing parties or your day in bed binge-watching for the 26th. Pretend that you're a kid watching "Full House" again. This show is a Netflix original that you’re not going to want to miss.
