‘Fuller House’ Trailer Finally Drops, Brings the Tanner Family Back Home: Watch!.

Based on the classic family sitcom “Full House,” which debuted in 1987, “Fuller House” serves as a gender-flipped take of the original series. Netflix also released the touching first teaser for the new series, which will follow Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy (Andrea Barber) helping DJ (Candace Cameron Bure) to raise her three sons.

That’s because while fans are treated to memorable San Francisco settings, ranging from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Tanner residence’s “Painted Lady” Victorian exterior, the only cast member seen in this “Fuller House” trailer, released Thursday, is an adorable puppy.Netflix released an announcement video Thursday, revealing that the revival/sequel/spinoff of ’80s and ’90s sitcom “Full House” will arrive Friday, Feb. 26 with 13 new episodes all at once. In “Full House” Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) had been widowed, fending for himself with his three young girls until his brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) and best friend Joey (Dave Coulier) moved in. Set to Miranda Lambert’s “The House that Built Me,” the teaser also offers fans their first look at the sitcom’s new set, which shows an updated version of the clan’s San Francisco home.

It’s a little tough to decipher who’s who with all the character names they mention, but it’s safe to say the Tanner family has grown since they left us in 1995. But between Jesse’s renewed warning to “Watch the hair” and Joey’s ubiquitous catchphrase “Cut it out,” there’s a reason the whole thing still feels like a homecoming for fans of the show.

Original cast members John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin will also make appearances throughout the season, while Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen chose not to reprise their role as youngest sister Michelle. While a spinoff of a classic television series isn’t the worst idea in the world, Netflix has managed to present a truly creepy teaser trailer to promote the series.

It was a decision that left Stamos, who is also producing the series, “#heartbroken.” It was also Stamos who announced back in April, after much speculation, that Fuller House was officially going to be a reality and the close-knit cast would be together again on screen. That nostalgia kicks in big time when Danny intones, “Welcome home.” On the other side of the door, the aforementioned adorable puppy can barely contain its excitement: a totally deep metaphor for “Full House” super-fans everywhere. Fans will also get to see cameos from Bob Saget as Danny Tanner, Lori Loughlin as Aunt Becky, Scott Weinger as Steve and Dave Coulier (“cut – it – out!”) as Joey Gladstone.

Now, obviously, in the original “Full House” there was a golden retriever named Comet (Buddy) but this is no Comet. (Largely because Buddy, the dog actor, died in 1998 after a successful career that included originating the title role of “Air Bud.”) However, it’s strange that there’s a young, collared dog sitting in a pristine-looking house that’s completely empty of other life. The characters from the show talking just outside the door, giving pertinent information about new cast members and generally talking over each other to remind the audience of who they are. The show is expected to explain the character’s absence by saying Michelle is working on her fashion line in New York City — just like the real-life Olsen twins. The dog, to its credit, seems as disturbed by this turn of events as anyone, and seems concerned about who (or what) might come through that door once it’s opened.

Personally, I’m hoping that “Fuller House” really digs into the Tanner curse, which takes young and unsuspecting spouses and kills them off in order to form a strange proving ground for each Tanner.
