Just a few days after the 1st season of Fuller House was released on Netflix, it was announced that a 2nd season has been ordered.
Therefore, that means there will also be a 2nd season of Fuller House Recaps. I look forward to continuing to be your host and guide not just through the rest of this first season, but the next one as well.
Here’s my video recap of this historic event:
I imagine that Season 2 will answer some of our unanswered questions:
“Why does Uncle Joey wear a wedding ring but never mention his wife or bring her to the house?”
“What about Danny’s wife? We briefly saw her kiss Danny, but I don’t believe we even got a name.”
“Who will DJ choose: Steve or Matt?”
Plus, is there a chance that Mary Kate or Ashley will reprise the role of Michelle? (Either one will do; we don’t have to have both.)
And will Stephanie, age 34, finally start acting like she’s 34?
The fact that Fuller House was so quickly renewed apparently tells us something about the money being made from the show.
Obviously, Netflix must have greatly benefited from the number of viewers that turned out to watch. They realized that whether or not the critics liked the show was irrelevant; what matters is that it’s a popular show.
In other words, the free market decided to make Fuller House so popular it would actually be financially irresponsible to not make a 2nd season.
Ultimately, the whole concept is pretty weird: A feel-good family sitcom from 1987 is resurrected, not on a major TV network, but on a streaming service people can watch anytime.
It was a plan just crazy enough to work. And even if we are mainly here just for the curiosity side of it, we still are indeed coming back.
Good job, free market. Good job, 1980s kids. Good job, Netflix.
