Candace Cameron Bure Says Goodbye to ‘Fuller House,’ But Hints There Could Be More to Come
It’s time to shut the door on Fuller House. The Netflix reboot wrapped its fifth and final season on November 15, and cast member Candace Cameron Bure shared some emotional updates from the set. The 43-year-old actress took to Instagram to talk about how it feels now that the show is coming to an end.
She says she feels ‘sick to my stomach’ about the end of ‘Fuller House’
Cameron Bure has spent a significant chunk of her career working on Full House and its spinoff Fuller House. From 1987 to 1995, she played DJ Tanner on the San Francisco-set sitcom. Since 2016, she’s played the same character on Fuller House. So when it came time to say goodbye to the character she’s spent more than a decade portraying, it was an emotional experience.
“I’m feeling happy and a little sick to my stomach,” the actress shared in her Instagram story on November 15.
“I’m not at tears yet, but I know I will be,” she added. “I have more butterflies, but so much gratitude.”
Later, the tears started to flow when she leafed through a scrapbook of memories from the show in her dressing room.
She also had an emotional reaction to co-star Andrea Barber’s Instagram post showing the Tanner family’s couch covered in plastic. “One more day,” Barber captioned the post.
“Kimmy, NO!!!!!!! Why you make me cry cry 😭?!!!!!” she responded, referring to Barber by her character’s first name.
Is this really the end of ‘Fuller House’?
While Netflix has pulled the plug on the Tanners, is there a possibility that the show could return? In an Instagram post from the last day of filming, Cameron Bure shared a photo of the cast sitting on the steps of the Tanner House with the caption “The door is always open…” That’s a reference to a commonly-said phrase on the show, but could it also mean that the door is open to future seasons? Never say never, Cameron Bure has said.
“It’s just beloved by millions and millions of people, and I think there are so many more stories that we could tell,” she told Access in an October 2019 interview. “So, we’re going to savor every moment that we have. I don’t know, maybe we’ll be back.”
In the past, the Hallmark channel actress has said she’d be happy to go on playing DJ Tanner for years.
“Oh my goodness, I would play DJ Tanner for the rest of my life,” she told E! News in 2018. “If the audience wanted it and the networks wanted it, I would do it forever. I love her.”
Netflix has not announced a specific release date for Fuller House Season 5 but says that it should arrive before the end of 2019.
