In a continuation of Full House (1987), D.J. Fuller is a mother of three young boys and is a recent widow. D.J.'s sister Stephanie, her best friend Kimmy and Kimmy's teenage daughter all move in to help raise her sons. The house is now a lot fuller.

The critics didn't understand why people liked the first Full House so much and they don't understand Fuller House either. This show was great
it lived up to my personal hype! I was practically raised on this
show and it didn't disappoint. The mix of nostalgia, the feel, and even the new "meta" comments totally fit. As a 30 year old I am right in Fuller House's wheelhouse and I identify with the characters, like I did as a kid. Stephanie was my first-ever crush, and it's interesting that she's where I am in life now too (trying to stay young, be free).
The cast's chemistry never went anywhere, and their pure delight on being on this show shines through. The premise is great, the new characters are good (especially cheeky Ramona) and there are so many great places the show can go with its story. The old cheesy humour remains, but the show is self-aware and points fun at it in great ways. In fact, the irony of how this show comes off in 2016 is part of the genius.
This show is satisfying my itch and my soul, do not pass it over because some critic says it's bad.
