“Fuller House” premiered on Netflix Feb. 26 as a sequel series to the TV show “Full House.”

“Full House” was the story of widower Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) who raised his three daughters, DJ (Candace Cameron-Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle (Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen), with the help of his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) and old friend Joey Gladstone (David Alan Coulier).

In the Netflix original series “Fuller House,” DJ Fuller is a widow raising her three sons, Jackson (Michael Campion), Max (Elias Harger) and Tommy (Dashiell and Fox Messitt), in her childhood home. Her sister Stephanie Tanner and old friend and next door neighbor Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) decide to move in and help DJ.

The series also brings back several characters from the original show, and all are played by the original cast. Once again, viewers see Danny, Uncle Joey, Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin). Viewers also see Jesse and Becky’s twin sons, Nikky (Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit) and Alex (Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit). Steve (Scott Weinger), DJ’s highschool sweetheart, also reappears in the series to reignite their old flame.

Unfortunately, the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, did not return for the first season of “Fuller House.”

“Fuller House” introduces new characters of its own. We have DJ’s three sons and there is also Kimmy’s daughter Ramona (Soni Bringas), who is a preteen like Jackson. The series gives DJ a new love interest in the form of a fellow veterinarian named Matt (John Brotherton).

“Fuller House” follows the story of the three women millennials will remember from their childhood, DJ, Stephanie and Kimmy, as they learn new lessons about life. Viewers also see their children learn the lessons we saw the parents learn so many years ago.

The series is a barrel of laughs and feel-good moments that leave you wanting more, and with nostalgia.

“Fuller House” has been renewed for a second season, according to their Facebook page.
