Netflix’s anticipated new series “Fuller House” will premiere in 2016, giving fans of the hit sitcom "Full House," which concluded in 1995, a chance to reunite with their favorite characters in the upcoming 13-episode installment -- like D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) and Steve (Scott Weinger). In fact, the forthcoming comedy will divulge what the high school sweethearts have been up to since audiences last saw them attending prom together in the series finale.
Ever since Weinger confirmed his participation in the reboot, fans have been crossing their fingers and toes, hoping his involvement in the Netflix series means Deej and Steve will rekindle their feelings for one another. And according to Cameron Bure, longtime lovers of the family show might just get what they hoped for -- or, at least, a few emotional scenes between the old flames.

“Steve makes a few appearances on the show,” she told Entertainment Weekly, attempting to stay tight-lipped about her character’s potential romance with Steve. “I’m sure they talk about old love and listen. D.J. is widowed and it’s been a while since her husband passed away. She’s thinking about dating.”
That’s right, like Bob Saget’s character Danny in the original "Full House," his daughter D.J. will kick off “Fuller House” as a single parent following the death of her husband. But D.J. won’t be left to raise her three boys alone! Her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) will quickly come to her side just like Joey (David Coulier) and Jesse (John Stamos) did for Danny.
During an interview with MTV News, Cameron Bure dished that Sweetin's and Barber’s characters will also help D.J. “loosen up” (which we hope means they’ll push her back into the dating world -- specifically with Steve). Cameron Bure acknowledged that she knows audiences are longing for the "Full House" couple to get back together and promises that “fans will be happy” with what goes down in the Netflix reboot. We sure hope so, Deej!
“Fuller House” will stream on Netflix in 2016.
