The original “Full House” debuted more than thirty years ago, but actress Lori Loughlin says the Netflix reboot has found an audience much bigger than just the fans who used to tune in on Friday nights.
“We have generations of fans that weren’t even born when the show was first on in primetime [thanks to] syndication,” she told Cheddar. “The show has never really gone off the air. so over the years we’ve just accumulated a larger and larger fanbase.”
The original series aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995. “Fuller House” debuted on Netflix in 2016 and has been picked up for a fourth season.
Loughlin says she’s been surprised by the reboot’s success.
“I don’t think any of us knew the fan reaction would be so overwhelmingly positive, and it was huge,” she said. “When [the pick-up] was first announced and the fan reaction was as big as it was, I think we were all like, ‘Wow!’”
The fourth season of “Fuller House” will begin production this spring.
