The set of “Fuller House” is getting even fuller! According to reports, in addition to cast members getting promoted to series regulars, fans of the original Netflix series can also expect new faces to make their debut in Season 2 of the “Full House” reboot.
One of those said faces are set to make goo-goo eyes at Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) when “Fuller House” makes its anticipated return. During the “Dancing With the Stars” finale, the eliminated Season 22 contestant dished to E! News that a new casting would affect her character’s plot line in the sophomore installment.
“Stephanie has a boyfriend this season,” she said, adding that it’s been “really fun” filming with her on-screen beau. “We’ve done two live audience live audience tapings … It’s been going great.”
TVLine dished that Stephanie’s new leading man would be a “gifted singer-songwriter” named Jimmy. The outlet explained that Steph’s future suitor would be easy on the eyes. But as good looking at Jimmy is teased to be, it was also revealed that he’ll be a “touch on the weird side.” And we think that’s a pretty perfect personality trait for Stephanie considering Danny’s (Bob Saget) wacky middle child spoke with an English accent for most of the pilot episode!
Stephanie isn’t the only cast member who will find herself in the middle of a new relationship. While trying to find peace from his break up with D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Matt (John Brotherton) will end up practicing yoga. But the studio he chooses just so happens to be led by an attractive and flexible instructor! Deadline reported that Brotherton will play a much larger role in Season 2 after getting promoted to a Season 2 regular.
“Fuller House” has not been given a Season 2 premiere date.
