We don’t have to do too much wondering about where the cast of 1987’s Full House is now, because most of them have signed on to the Netflix reboot, Fuller House.
Although the reboot will not include famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who rose to fame after alternating the part of Michelle Tanner, Candace Cameron Bure (DJ Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey), and Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky) will all make appearances.
Look no further to find out what the Full House stars have been up to since the original sitcom ended in 1995- and how they’ve either maintained or squandered their bank accounts since with the Fuller House Cast 2018 net worth.
Candace Cameron Bure’s most notable role will forever be as the spunky D.J. Tanner, eldest daughter to Danny Tanner, on Full House.
Though she would go on to make some television appearances in the year after Full House ended, she took a defining career hiatus until the early 2000s, where she returned to television as a commentator on VH1’s I Love the 80s series.
She guest-starred on other television shows and got a spot on the eighteenth season of Dancing With the Stars, but perhaps her most notable role since Full House is as a conservative talk show host on The View. Bure often bickers with her co-stars about political and religious beliefs as a practicing born-again Christian.
Sweetin played the middle-aged Tanner child on the Full House sitcom, but the show wrapped when she was the young age of 14.
As she entered her teenage years, she started to dabble in the hard-partying Hollywood lifestyle and consequentially developed a substance abuse problem.
Though Sweetin didn’t do a whole lot in the entertainment industry after Full House due to her dependencies, she rose above her problems and in 2009 penned a tell-all called unSweetined, which was met with generally positive reviews; it generated a lot of attention from Sweetin’s raw honesty about going through addiction and deciding to become sober.
David Coulier played the fun-loving, hilarious best friend of Danny Tanner, lovably referred to by the Tanner girls as Uncle Joey.
While Coulier, like many of the other Full House actors, major success was on Full House, he experienced some minor success later on as a voice actor and even dabbled in reality TV. In 2006, Coulier appeared on one of the first major reality shows, VH1’s the Surreal Life.
Add in that he continues to do comedy tours and that he frequently works as a host on shows like America’s Funniest People and America’s Most Talented Kid, and as a result Coulier has done pretty well in-between the end of Full House and this year’s reboot.
Bob Saget turned out to be one of the more shocking Full House actors to re-vamp his image post-show.
Playing the wholesome and lovable dad, Danny Tanner, Bob Saget went on after Full House to mainly host America’s Funniest Home Videos. But Saget soon turned the wholesome image around with his adult-oriented stand-up routines, making jokes like:
Soon, I’m going to meet somebody around my own age, and she’s going to be smart and beautiful, and I’m going to date her daughter.
This arguably made Bob Saget all the more funnier, and he has spent over 30-years as a successful stand-up comic. Plus, he’s earned totally cool guest spots on big TV hits like Entourage.
He’s directed some movies, been in Broadway plays, and was the narrator of CBS’s hit show, How I Met Your Mother.
In other words, Saget has experienced massive success post-Full House and has solidified himself as an American pop culture icon.
John Stamos, like Bob Saget, is one of the more successful Full House alum.
Unlike many of the other Full House stars, Stamos didn’t necessarily “get his break” with his stint on the sitcom. Rather, by the time Stamos was selected for the Full House cast, he had already earned an Emmy nomination for his work on the wildly popular 80s soap opera, General Hospital. He went on to lead in several sitcoms before even joining Full House.
After Full House’s end, Stamos pretty much touched on every facet of the entertainment industry, starring and guest starring in many notable shows.
The latest show he’s starring in, Grandfathered, has been met with rave reviews, proving that Stamos still has it.
