Recap 'Fuller House' Season 1 To Keep Up With The Tanner Family
2016 has been the year of reviving beloved TV shows fans thought were long dead, and Full House was one of them. In February, Fuller House hit Netflix in all its nostalgic glory, and, even though it's almost too good to be true, we get another season before the year is over. On Friday, Fuller House Season 2 arrives, and I can't wait to spend the weekend catching up with D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy, who at this point feel like my real, lifelong pals. If you feel the same way, you might be looking for a Fuller House Season 1 recap, and I am happy to deliver.
After all, it's probably been awhile since you watched Season 1. So much has happened since then — in reality and on TV — so how could anyone's brain possibly hold onto that much information?! So if you're fuzzy on the details, don't worry. I've watched the show enough times for all of us.
Here's everything that happened in Fuller House Season 1 so you're prepared to marathon Season 2 when it hits Netflix on Friday. Please, please, please let there be more Uncle Jesse this time around! There can never be enough.
Stephanie & Kimmy Move In With DJ
The show begins shortly after DJ has lost her husband and finds herself the single mother of three boys and totally lost. So Stephanie and Kimmy decide to move into their childhood home to help DJ with her kids — just like Joey and Jesse did after Danny lost his wife in the original series. Kimmy's daughter, Ramona, is completely against the idea at first but slowly warms up to D.J. and her family. In the present day, Stephanie's a single DJ while Kimmy is a party planner going through a divorce, although her relationship with her ex, Fernando, is pretty complicated.
There Are Tons Of Cameos From The Original Cast
They're not in every episode, but we get to see Uncle Jesse, Danny, Becky, and Joey on multiple occasions, which is part of why I loved Season 1 so much. There are also brief appearances by Nicky and Alex, Jesse's band, The Rippers, and even Harry Takayama, Stephanie's childhood BFF/fake husband. I can only hope there's more of this in Season 2!
Stephanie Reveals A Surprising Secret
In a totally heartbreaking and unexpected turn of events, Stephanie ends up confiding in D.J. that she can't have children, which is why it's so important to her to spend so much time with her nephews. Fuller House made me cry so many times for so many reasons, and this was a big one.
Kimmy Is Still Engaged To Fernando
After they rekindled their romance (which, let's face it, was never really dead), Kimmy and Fernando almost get remarried, but at the last minute, she decides they should stay engaged and keep dating before they rush into something again. Good call, girl.
D.J. Has To Make An Important Choice
The major love triangle of Fuller House? Matt, D.J.'s grown up boyfriend, and Steve, her high school love. In the season finale, it came time for D.J. to make a choice between them, but ultimately, she decided to choose herself and stay single. However, I have a feeling this is definitely going to come up again in Season 2... and personally, I'm rooting for Steve here. They've always been so perfect together!
I can't wait to see what Season 2 will bring. Like I said before, hopefully plenty more Uncle Jesse. Don't let me down, Fuller House!
