'Full House' franchise earns first Emmy nomination more than 30 years after its premiere
“Fuller House” received an Emmy nomination for outstanding children’s program on Thursday, marking the first time a show under the “Full House” brand has been up for an Emmy.
“CONGRATS to everyone at @fullerhouse on our EMMY nom. Only took 30 years!” John Stamos, who plays Uncle Katsopolis on the series, tweeted Thursday.
His co-stars were similarly excited, with Candace Cameron Bure tweeting she is “so so so proud of our team!!!”
“So happy for everyone @FullerHouse for our #Emmy nomination!!” Bob Saget wrote. “I’m definitely renewing my @netflix subscription.”
The original “Full House” premiered in 1987 and ran through 1995. The beloved series was rebooted in 2016 as “Fuller House,” which has since completed three seasons and has a fourth on the way.
“Fuller House” is joined in this year’s outstanding children’s program category by “Star Wars Rebels,” “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” “Alexa & Katie” and “The Magical Wand Chase: A Sesame Street Special.”
