“It’s kind of like the flip of what the original show was about. So it was three men raising these three girls, but now it takes you to the present day and my character D.J. has two boys [and] one baby on the way and she’s just lost her husband. And so she needs help so she asks her sister and her best friend to come back and help raise her kids,” she said.
Since “Full House” ended, Cameron-Bure made perhaps her biggest splash on season 18 of “DWTS” last year, finishing in third place alongside partner Mark Ballas.
The devoutly Christian Cameron-Bure told FOX411 that she believes the original “Full House,” which ran from 1987-1995, is still so beloved because “It was good family programming and there was always a lesson to be learned, no matter how sugary sweet it was.
“I think people just loved it and it’s never been off the air in more than 25 years, so I think the fans will be really excited for the new version of the show.”
However, the actress stressed, “We’re not trying to remake the old ‘Full House’ but it will be fresh and contemporary and have current situations that we’ll deal with. But I know the feel of what ‘Full House’ represented for people, that it was a safe show and all of that in the content will be there.”

“My character, I am unfortunately widowed,” Candace told E! News’ Jesse Giddingsat the Dancing With the Stars‘ 10th Anniversary party Tuesday night. “D.J.’s had a rough life—her mom died and now her husband died. She has two boys and she’s pregnant with her third, so life’s tough. She needs help, so she asks Stephanie and Kimmy to come live with her and help her raise her kids. It’s kind of the flip of the original Full House.”
“It will be fresh and contemporary and it’ll be current,” she said. “We’re not going to try and re-do the old Full House stories, but I think that we will capture the same feel of the show.”
Helping to capture the same feel of the original? The return of some of the original stars!
