Whether we wanted it to or not, it looks like Netflix’s nostalgia cash grab (otherwise known as Fuller House) has paid off for the streaming service, despite some of the worst reviews I’ve ever seen a TV series receive.
Picking up with a majority of the show’s main characters again in the present day, the series was a hotly anticipated follow-up for a majority of people out there that grew up with the original series, and after the first season’s debut at the end of last week – Netflix has officially renewed Fuller House for a second season.
The streaming service announced the renewal with a new Twitter video earlier today. Check it out below:

The new series featured guest appearances from original cast members like John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, Scott Weinger, and more, though it focused mainly on the now adult D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure), D.J.’s younger sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), and D.J.’s lifelong best friend, Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
As I said previously, the reviews and critical reactions to the series have been less than pleasant, to say the least, but the nostalgia factor of the series alone was enough to bring large numbers of fans and kids to pressing play last week. Even if they had been warned not to.
Season 1 of Fuller House is available on Netflix now.
