Hallmark Channel's 'Full House' Marathon On New Year's Day Is Kicking Off Your 2018 Right
Toasting to the ball drop may make you feel alive in the moment, but the Hallmark Channel has just what you need to kick off your new year right. The cable network is airing a Full House marathon on New Year's Day, presenting both Full House and Fuller House fans with a chance to indulge in a healthy dose of nostalgia.
According to Hallmark, fans of the franchise will be able to watch the iconic family show on Jan. 1, 2018. In the marathon's trailer, posted to the network's website, it's announced that episodes will air in their "original running order," all the way from the series' very first one. That's right — every single Full House episode, in all eight of the staple's seasons will make its way to a television screen near you real soon. And if you're one of the rare few who hasn't memorized their iconic theme song, "Everywhere You Look," yet, this will be the most perfect time to do so.
And for all of you Fuller House enthusiasts who still can't get over Michelle Tanner's absence in the reboot, you'll be able to revisit Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in their earliest career moments. The actors-turned-fashion designers are certainly all grown up today. But seriously, who else can't get enough of seeing the fraternal twin's acclaimed role? They always caused a bit a mischief in the Tanner household. Unfortunately for fans, it doesn't sound like we'll get to hear "you got it dude" ring from the famous twins' lips any time soon. And while their reasons for not joining in on the Fuller House fun are totally respected, there will always be a void in the new-and-improved Tanner household that can only be filled by the two of them.
All in all, the Netflix reboot is still able to captivate its audience, in spite of the Olsen's absence. The streaming platform announced that the second half of its third season will premiere just in time for Christmas on Dec. 22. So, does that mean that fans will finally get the D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) and Steve (Scott Weinger) love story that they've been waiting for? Or will Steve actually end up marrying his fiancé C.J., even though it's clear that the eldest Tanner sibling is his soulmate? That's obviously up in the air. But the Fuller House Season 3B trailer definitely hints that something major is going to go down in Tokyo.
If all else fails, and C.J. and Steve actually end up tying the knot, at least fans will gain a ton of laughs from the antics that the Tanner-Gibbler clan are bound to get into while abroad.
After watching the second part of Season 3, throwing it back to the time before D.J. and Kimmy were raising their own complicated bunch may just be what the soul needs. Especially if the actual wedding outcome leaves you completely heartbroken. And if the holiday cheer, Christmas leftovers, or New Year's optimism doesn't help heal your heart, diving into the much simpler times of the Tanner gang most certainly will.
Kicking off at 4 p.m. EST on New Year's Day, fans will watch on as Danny, Joey, and Uncle Jesse raise D.J., Stephanie, and baby Michelle in their San Francisco digs. And of course, it's inevitable that those following the adorable family throughout the years will fall in love with them all over again.
It's not even Christmas yet, but the TV gods can't help but shower fanatics with entertainment goodness. And this Full House marathon is going to be just what everyone needs to walk into the New Year with enough positivity to last until the following.
