Fuller House stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber joined the upcoming show’s executive producers–Bob Boyett and Jeff Franklin–at a Television Critics Association panel in L.A. on Sunday. The show’s three main characters shared some nostalgic feelings about reprising their Full House characters.
Candace Cameron Bure admits she was a bit overwhelmed during her first day on the Fuller House set.
“I had to pause and stop. The emotions got to me and I was crying. I was flooded with so many memories,” she said.
Her character, DJ Tanner, is a recently widowed pregnant veterinarian with two sons on Fuller House.

Andrea Barber, reprising her role as DJ’s best friend Kimmy Gibbler, and Jodie Sweetin in her previous role as Stephanie Tanner, both move in with DJ to help her with her family.
Fuller House feels “like coming home again to your childhood home,” Andrea Barber said Sunday.
“It’s fun filling in the blanks of what’s gone on with these characters” over the years,” Jodie Sweetin shared.
Jeff Franklin created Fuller House, and he warns that although the first episode is filled with nostalgia, fans shouldn’t expect that in subsequent episodes.
“We wanted to create an episode for the fans, (as in) the last episode of Full House we never got to do. Fans know the show inside out, probably better than I do,” he said. “Going forward, it’s great to have the guys and Becky coming through now and then. We want them there, but this is a show centered around these three women. As the episodes go along, the visits will become more sporadic.”
The only Full House cast members who won’t return to Fuller House are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The Olsen twins played the role of Michelle Tanner, DJ and Stephanie Tanner’s little sister.
