“Fuller House” just promoted one of its cast members to a series regular — and it has fans of the the hit Netflix revival wondering what this exciting promotion will mean for D.J.’s character.
Deadline reported that John Brotherton, who portrayed D.J.’s (Candace Cameron Bure) love interest Matt, will be returning for the sophomore installment with a much larger role on the show. But does that mean he’ll also play a bigger part in D.J.’s life?
When Season 1 concluded, D.J. and Matt had partnered up to run their veterinarian clinic, Harmon-Fuller Pet Care, together. But while their professional relationship thrived, their romantic partnership took a dip after D.J. was forced to chose between her sizzling, new romance or her high school sweetheart, Steve (Scott Weigner). Ultimately, D.J. decided to give her final rose to neither of the hopeful bachelors.
“I’m sorry, but I just started dating again and this got really complicated,” she told the disappointed suitors. “If it’s this hard for me to decide, I must not be ready for a serious relationship.”
But does Brotherton’s series regular role mean that D.J. will change her tune and cozy up to the animal-loving hottie during Season 2? Well, TVLine revealed that there will be a future romance for Matt but it won’t be with the single mother of three! According to the outlet, Matt will attempt to move on from his and ex and business partner through meditative yoga … and Cristal, his flexible instructor!
Brotherton responded to the exciting casting news on Twitter, stating that he was “honored” and “grateful” to have his character promoted to a series regular. “So stoked to get back to work with a truly amazing group,” he added.
“Fuller House” was renewed for a second season in March.
