The House That Built Fuller House

"I Just Had to Go Back One Last Time"

As any child of the ’80s or ’90s knows, “Everywhere you look, there’s a heart, a hand to hold on to.” At least, if you were a fan of the cherished classic Full House, you knew the Tanner family was waiting “just around the bend” or on the other side of your TV screen every afternoon.

And when John Stamos announced in April that the original cast was coming back for the Netflix-produced spin-off Fuller House, we became giddy, excited children all over again.

While everyone loves the show’s heart-warming theme song “Everywhere You Look,” the most recent trailer for the new show gives the show a fresh soundtrack. Country fans heard a familiar string of guitar notes as the trailer opens on San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, a staple in the original show’s opening.


On the original series, Danny Tanner was left widowed with three daughters, and his best friend Joey and brother-in-law Jesse move in to help him raise the girls. In the spin-off, D.J. Tanner, Danny’s oldest daughter, is left widowed with three children of her own, and her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy move in to help her out.

In many ways, Miranda Lambert‘s “The House That Built Me” is the perfect song for Fuller House. A major aspect of the plot is that D.J. is now raising her family in the same iconic house where she was raised, the house that “built” her to become the person she is today.

The song opens, “I know they say, ‘You can’t go home again.’ I just had to come back one last time.” While many people thought that once the show ended, we had lost our second home forever, it seems we will get to go back to the Tanner home one last time.
