Lori Loughlin Joins 'Fuller House', Which Is Great News For All Lovers Of Uncle Jesse & Aunt Becky's Relationship
I don't know about you, but the upcoming Netflix sequel series Fuller House is enough to make a Full House fan nervous. After all, as much as we'd love to see the entire cast of Full House return for Fuller House, we don't know exactly how likely that is. John Stamos, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Dave Coulier are all on board with the project, but the fates of Aunt Becky, Danny, and Michelle Tanner still remained up in the air. At least, until now. According to Aunt Becky herself, Lori Loughlin has joined Fuller House. Can I get a "have mercy?"
This is great news for multiple reasons, but no reason is more important than the fact that it means that Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky are still going strong. Not that I thought that they wouldn't be, whether Loughlin returned or not. I merely assumed that they would have to handwave some excuse about her being away at work or something to explain why the two were still happily married (forever and ever, thank you very much) despite Stamos being present without Loughlin. However, we won't have to worry about that at all, because Loughlin has happily signed on to the project.
"Doing that show was one of the best jobs I've ever had. It was just so much fun," Loughlin said to People when asked about her decision to sign onboard. "I think with Jeff Franklin at the helm — he's the creator of Full House — it's hard to go wrong because nobody's more protective of that show than he is. That's his baby." That show was pretty much everyone's baby, and watching it come back to life with so many of the original cast eager to return, is enough to bring a tear to the eyes of even the most grown-up of former fans.
Any among us who didn't consider Jesse and Becky to be the very definition of true love while they were watching Full House religiously are total liars. The likelihood that we will get Mary-Kate or Ashley Olsen on board to play Michelle for the pilot episode, or that we will get Bob Saget on board to play Danny Tanner, are looking pretty slim, but we have most of the titular full house all present and accounted for, and that is what matters here. Even better, if there is anyone that D.J. can go to for help and advice on how to raise her children, it's Aunt Becky. After all, the poor woman raised two troublesome twins who gave the adorable Michelle a run for her money.
