The girls on ‘Full House’ are all grown up — clearly — but are the storylines? The spinoff airs on Netflix on Feb. 26, and everyone is wondering about what the network change plus the age group will mean. Luckily, HollywoodLife.com spoke to the cast to find out.
Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), DJ (Candace Cameron-Bure), and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) are not kids anymore. They’re now in their 30s, living together and raising their families. But they’re also dating, and well, are adults so the subject matter isn’t going to be so G-rated anymore. Or is it?
“I don’t think we were trying to push the envelope away from Full House,” Dave Couiler, AKA Joey, told us on the red carpet for the Fuller House premiere in LA. “I think this iteration of the show is really Full House 2.0. It really updates us where we are in our lives now. So I think fans are still going to be able to see a lot of the things they love with the original show — a lot of the same family values, a lot of the quirky stuff, the characters, the catch phrases, [and] maybe Mr. Woodchuck will be in it!”
Dave would bring up Mr. Woodchuck. Yes, I went there.
“Yeah, there’s a lot more edge to it. I mean, the jokes are more modern so they’re a little edgier,” Andrea added. “We’re late 30s women. We have stereotypes. We have storylines. We have love interests. There’s a lot of potential there so you’ll have to tune in to find out.”
Not to worry though — it still is a family show. “There’s not too much sex or violence, there’s none of that,” Andrea added. “I will still sit down on my couch with my kids and watch the show and have no fear that there’s going to be anything questionable about it. No sex or violence but maybe some sexy tones in there!”
