Candace Cameron Bure Celebrates 32-Year Anniversary of Full House: 'So Much Gratitude and Love'
Full House aired on ABC for eight seasons and 192 episodes
On Monday, the actress took to Instagram the honor the popular sitcom — which aired its first episode on Sept. 22, 1987 — with a photo of her days as D.J. Tanner alongside John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Jodie Sweetin, and Mary-Kate/Ashley Olsen.
“Full House premiered 32 years ago and I’m having a FULL ON moment 🙏🏼🥰What a journey it’s been . . . my heart is filled with so much gratitude & love 💖💛 #fullhouse #memories#family,” Bure, 43, captioned the throwback shot.
The show, which aired on ABC for eight seasons, followed Danny Tanner (Saget), his brother-in-law Jesse (Stamos), and his college best friend Joey Gladstone (Coulier) as they raise Danny’s three daughters — D.J. (Bure), Stephanie (Sweetin) and Michelle (Olsen twins) — together after his wife Pam dies.
In 2016, a reboot, Fuller House, premiered on Netflix, starring Bure as a now-adult D.J. who is a widowed mother of three sons. Sweetin and Andrea Barber, who played her childhood BFF Kimmy in the original series, also star.
With the exception of the Olsens, all original cast members have reprised their roles in either main, recurring or guest roles, including Lori Loughlin as Aunt Becky.
In June, Stamos, 56, said that although Fuller House is airing its fifth and final season later this year, he is hopeful it is not goodbye for the Tanner family forever.
“I don’t think it’s done,” he told E! News. “I think there’s a play that we go backward, like what happened before?”
Stamos said he was particularly interested in storylines that explore what life was like before Joey and Jesse moved in with widowed Danny and his girls, as the sitcom rarely ever spoke about Pam’s life or death.
“If you remember in the pilot of the show, my sister Pam dies, and that’s why it’s the three men raising the three girls, so I’d like to explore that,” he explained to the outlet. “The brother/sister, maybe go back. We’ll see.”
