‘Fuller House’ Star Candace Cameron Bure on Grown-Up DJ: ‘She’s Still Really Fun’
Candace Cameron Bure has been filming the Netflix series Fuller House for a few months now and is ready to tell fans what they can expect from the oldest Tanner sister now that she’s a single mother of three.
“She’s in mom mode, full-time,” Bure told TVLine in an interview. “She’s not a teenager anymore, but she’s still really fun. She also has to keep three boys under control without a husband, so she’s got to be a disciplinarian. If you were that teenage girl who wished that DJ was your sister, or wished that she was your best friend, you’ll be really happy with how she is as a mom.”
She also went on to tell the site that when it comes to the tone of the series “the show is very much the same, but it’s updated.” She continued, “I’m sure a few of the jokes are a little bit racier now than they would have been in the ’90s, but it’s still nothing that’s inappropriate or that you would feel uncomfortable watching with your kids. We’re three grown women, and I have to say, we’re all pretty good-looking, too. [Laughs] We have some cute guys on the show, too, so that’s fun.”
The series will follow an adult DJ Tanner, now a recent widow and mother of three. She opens her home to her sister Stephanie and bff Kimmy Gibbler, along with Kimmy’s teenage daughter, and the three will try and navigate life similar to the way it was done for them. The entire original Full House cast, minus the Olsen twins, is set to return for the series premiere.
Fuller House is scheduled to head to Netflix in 2016.
