'Fuller House' Stars Share Early Fan Reaction to the Premiere

Another familiar "Full House" face is joining Netflix's sequel/reboot "Fuller House." Harry Takayama, Stephanie's childhood friend, will be making an appearance on the Netflix series, TheWrap has learned.

The character — now all grown up — will be played by actor Michael Sun Lee, and not Nathan Nishiguchi, the child actor who played Harry over multiple episodes of "Full House's" second and third seasons.

In one classic episode, Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Harry get married after she feels left out of her own family's festivities, with an elaborate backyard wedding to boot.

Confirmed "Fuller House" cast members include Candace Cameron Bure as D.J., Sweetin as middle sister Stephanie and Andrea Barber, who played Kimmy Gibbler. John Stamos is set to produce while at the same time reprising his role as Uncle Jesse in a guest role. Dave Coulier will also return as Uncle Joey. Lori Loughlin had confirmed her role in the reboot, as well as Bob Saget, and Steve Weinger will also return as D.J.'s longtime on-and-off boyfriend Steve.

After much speculation, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who both played Michelle Tanner, will not be returning.

The original "Full House" sitcom ran from 1987 to 1995, broadcasting 192 episodes on ABC. The spinoff "Fuller House" will focus on the grown-up D.J. Tanner, recently widowed and living in San Francisco. Pregnant and with two boys, she enlists her younger sister Stephanie and her best friend Kimmy to help raise the kids.

Jeff Franklin, the creator of the original show, will serve as writer, with Kelly Sandefur as producer and Robert L. Boyett as executive producer alongside Franklin.

"Fuller House" is now in production and will premiere on Netflix in 2016.
