The cast of “Fuller House” is working tirelessly to give fans of the hit Netflix series the second season they so desperately crave. Case and point? Elias Harger, who plays D.J. Tanner’s adorable middle child Max, shared a sweet photo of him and his cast mates fast asleep on set.
“Nap time!” Harger captioned the photo of him snuggled up between his co-stars Michael Campion, who plays Jackson, and Soni Nicole Bringas, who portrays Ramona. “#behindthescenes.”
Although the Season 2 premiere date for the “Full House” reboot has not been released, a trailer for the upcoming installment did tease that the revival would stream sooner than fans would have expected. John Stamos, who guest stars and acts as an executive producer on the series, revealed the reason why “Fuller House” was renewed so quickly.
“The fans of the show loved the show. [Netflix] renewed [it] within, like, a day,” Stamos, who plays the Elvis-loving character Uncle Jesse, told E! News in April. Netflix released the freshman installment of “Fuller House” on Feb. 26 and shortly after, the show was renewed for a second run on March 2. Production for the new season kicked off on May 5.
“They actually sort of put a rush on it,” Stamos explained that Netflix was eager to get the second season out. “I don’t think they’ve announced the dates, but they’re going to be a lot sooner than we released last year’s.”
Perhaps Netflix’s eagerness may have something to do with the show’s impressive ratings. According to Vanity Fair, the series drew in 14.4 million viewers within the 18 to 49 age range within 35 days of its premiere. IndieWire elaborated that those numbers mean “Fuller House” drew a larger audience than AMC’s hit drama “The Walking Dead,” whose sixth season garnered a 9.6 overall rating. Have mercy!
“Fuller House” was renewed for a second season in March.
