How Old Is The ‘Fuller House’ Cast? The ‘Full House’ Actors Seamlessly Step Back Into Their Roles

It’s been 29 years since Full House first premiered on September 22, 1987. And, nearly three decades later, lifelong fans are gearing up for the Tanner/Katsopolis/Gladstone (and now Fuller) clan to get back under one, very full, roof. Fuller House’s 13-episode first season will hit Netflix on Feb. 26, and, while the house and characters are the same, everyone seems to have grown up. So, how old is the Fuller House cast now?

In the trailer for the Netflix reboot, Jesse (John Stamos) jokes that the cast all still looks pretty good. No argument there. It’s been 21 years since the finale episode in 1995 and fans are not having any trouble recognizing of our favorite ‘90s family in 2016. But, time has definitely passed for the characters and the actors. The girls, and the actresses who played them, are all grown up now. And, the women are ready to manage a full house of their very own.

With the story set 29 years since the pilot episode (aka present time), how old are the characters going to be on Fuller House? And, will the cast be acting their age? Here’s how old the Full House actors — and characters — are on Netflix’s Fuller House.

Uncle Jesse Katsopolis

When the show started, John Stamos (born 1963) was 24 years old. Uncle Jesse may actually be one year older than Stamos because Jesse turned 26 in the Season 2 episode, “I’m There For You Babe,” where everyone wants something from him — give the beautiful man a break, jeez! If Jesse was 24 or 25 in the pilot, he would 53 or 54 on Fuller House. John Stamos, however, turns 53 in August, have mercy!

Danny Tanner

According to Danny Tanner’s Full House wiki page, Danny was 30 (born 1957) when the show commenced. There is even an early season one episode confirming Danny’s age, as he turns 30 in, “The Big 3-0.” Bob Saget (born 1956) was 31, close to the age of his character. That would make Danny 59 in the Netflix series. Bob Saget is still 59 IRL, with his 60th birthday waiting just around the bend in May.

Joey Gladstone

Joey and Danny were childhood friends who graduated together. So, that would make them both 30 at the commencement of the series. This would make Joey 59 in the Netflix reboot as well. Though Dave Coulier is 2 years younger than his character in real life, he was 28 when the show premiered and will turn 57 later in 2016.

D.J. Tanner

Donna Jo was a responsible fifth grader when we met her in 1987. And, the show lasted eight seasons, following D.J. through her 18th birthday and senior year. Candace Cameron Bure was about the same age as D.J. in real life, and was 11 at the beginning of the series. D.J. is now a 39-year-old mother of three on Fuller House. And, in real life, Bure is a 39-year-old mother of three.

Stephanie Tanner

When the show began, both Jodie Sweetin and her character, Stephanie, were five years old, according to her Full House wiki page. But, it’s been a long time since Kindergarten. Both Stephanie and Jodie are 34 in 2016.

Kimmy Gibbler

Andrea Barber is the same age as Candace Cameron Bure. And, Kimmy Gibbler is the same age as D.J. Tanner, which makes Barber and her character 39 in the Netflix series. Barber and Bure will both turn 40 later this year.


Michelle Tanner

While Michelle will not be in the series, because she is taking the New York fashion world by storm, it should be noted that the Olsen twins were a little more than a year old when the show began. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, born June 13, 1986, (and Michelle Tanner) will turn 30 this year. Woah.

All in all, the cast has grown at the same rate as their characters, which will make their portrayals, even three decades later, just as authentic as you remember.

Daisy James-Margaret Tanner (born February 9, 1977, portrayed by Candace Cameron)


Donna-Jo Margaret Tanner (born February 9, 1977, portrayed by Candace Cameron) is Danny and Pam’s oldest child. D.J. attends Frasier Street Elementary, Van Atta Junior High and Bayview High School (through the show’s whole run). She shares a room with Stephanie at the beginning, later to switch with Michelle (in season five) for privacy reasons. Even though she sometimes bickers with her sisters, she deeply cares for them. She has her first serious relationship with Steve Hale (first introduced in season five), who later becomes a real fixture in her life (and an official cast member beginning in season 6) when their characters return from a summer abroad in Spain. D.J. announces a big surprise that her and Steve are dating.

Their relationship lasts until they break up in season seven, after realizing the passion in their relationship is gone, but agree to remain friends. D.J. has on-and-off relationships (during the show’s final season) with guitarist Viper (a new addition to Jesse’s band) and rich kid Nelson, but both relationships do not last. In the series finale, Steve shows up at the Tanner house to take D.J. to her Senior Prom.Though she gets upset at times over her father prying into her or otherwise embarrassing her, she is always quick to apologize when she gets angry with at him. D.J. is often irritated about the limits her father places on her, and usually breaks these limits. Nevertheless, she eventually learns her lesson (usually the hard way). This structure of one of the “Tanner sisters” learning a life-important lesson is shown in many episodes.

D.J. is a straight A student. From the sixth episode (“Daddy’s Home”), when she wouldn’t talk about how much she wished Danny wasn’t working so much because Stephanie would cry about Danny missing her recital, D.J. shows great sensitivity toward her younger siblings. Stephanie quite often got on her nerves with her snooping, and this trend continued throughout the series. Her interests include music (such as George Michael during season 2), movies, and hanging out with her friends. In early episodes, she was shown to love Horseback Riding, dreaming of having her own horse, practicing karate. D.J. has a Pillow Person that she’s attached to and unlike Mr. Bear, D.J.’s Pillow Person is still seen until “Full House” ends. D.J. has a Charm Bracelet that Pam gave her when she and Danny bought Michelle home from the hospital.


  • Fuller House season 5 may have hinted at a dark fate for Michelle Tanner, according to Screen Rant.
  • The original Full House character, previously played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, hasn’t made an appearance in the Netflix reboot, but the series has referenced her whereabouts.
  • The first half of Fuller House season 5 was released on December 6.

After part one of Fuller House season 5 was released in early December, a dark theory about Michelle Tanner emerged and began spreading around the internet.

Though the character was famously played by twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in the hit ‘90s sitcom Full House, the youngest Tanner daughter hasn’t appeared once throughout the reboot’s five seasons. Now, thanks to a theory Screen Rant threw out, some folks are worried that Fuller House writers have taken matters into their own hands with an unexpected, heartbreaking plot twist: Michelle is actually dead.

The theory is rooted in a heartfelt scene played out between Danny (Bob Saget), Kimmy (Andrea Barber), D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) in the last episode of part one of Fuller House season 5. Giving Kimmy a hug, Danny goes, “You know, it’s so nice to have three daughters again.”

Assuming the worst, the website cited the line as a sign that something terrible happened to Danny’s youngest daughter. As Screen Rant goes on to point out, if you take the line literally, it could imply that Michelle is dead.

If we had to guess though, this is probably not what the writers intended. As viewers of the show know, Fuller House has referenced Michelle’s whereabouts before, like in season 1 when Danny explained that she was busy running a “fashion empire” in New York. One season later, D.J. shared that she wished her sister could have joined their family Thanksgiving dinner. This prompted Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) to break the fourth wall by looking directly at the camera and extend an invite to the Olsen twins. “Come, it’ll be fun,” he joked.

These references aside, the original cast has long tried to convince the Olsen twins to rejoin their TV family. Much to their disappointment though, it looks like Mary-Kate and Ashley have declined, meaning they will definitely not be returning to reprise their iconic role.

At this point, it’d probably be best for fans to follow Candace’s example and simply move on.

Candace Cameron Bure pledges ‘family sticks together’ following costar Lori Loughlin’s arrest

Candace Cameron Bure has a message straight out of Fuller House for fans — and maybe costar Lori Loughlin.

Bure made an impassioned speech about family standing by each other during “hard times” Saturday night while accepting the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Funny TV Show alongside her Fuller House costars.

One face noticeably absent from the group was Loughlin, who portrays Aunt Becky, and has recently been caught in the crosshairs of the college admissions scandal known as Operation Varsity Blues. Recent reports suggested Loughlin won’t return for the fifth and final season of the Netflix reboot in the wake of her arrest and involvement in the scandal.

Yet, Bure, who leads the series as D.J. Tanner-Fuller and serves as a producer, only seemed to have words of support for her now ignominious costar.

“Family sticks together no matter what,” she pledged in her acceptance speech, which she later shared on Instagram. “They stick together through the hard times. They support each other. They encourage one another. They pray for each other, and they stand by their side no matter how tough it gets. And a loving family that sticks together also celebrates the really good times together.”

Costar Jodie Sweetin then took things home by saying, “You have stuck with us for 30 years and we love you all so much. So, thank you for the Kids Choice Awards, and we promise the fifth and final season is going to be amazing.”

In the wake of Loughlin’s arrest, the actress has been dropped from many of her projects. In addition to reports that Netflix will not have her back for the final season of Fuller House, the Hallmark Channel cut ties with the actress and “stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin,” according to a statement. An episode of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart featuring Loughlin was also pulled from the schedule.

Netflix and Warner Bros. Television have yet to officially comment on Loughlin’s status on Fuller House, and filming has not yet begun. Loughlin is a guest star, not a series regular on the Netflix reboot of the beloved sitcom.

Loughlin, specifically, faces charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud, while she and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to classify their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, as recruits for the crew team at University of Southern California. The actress surrendered herself to authorities on March 13 and was later released after paying a $1 million bond.

  • Fuller House is coming to an end on Netflix after season 5.
  • Actress Candace Cameron Bure shared an Instagram of her and husband Val Bure embracing after her Fuller House “final bow.”
  • Some folks think the man Candace is kissing in the photo is actually John Brotherton, and the Instagram is a “spoiler” of what’s to come when the last season is released in December.

Looking at Candace Cameron Bure’s Instagram, it’s easy to see that the 43-year-old actress has a lot of feelings about Fuller House ending.

Over the past few weeks, Candace has been keeping her online fans updated on the progress of the fifth and final season of Fuller House, which was first released on Netflix in February 2016. This past weekend was the final taping of season 5, marking the official end of the beloved ’90s sitcom reboot.

To commemorate the bittersweet event, Candace, who has been a part of the Full House family for over 30 years, posted the world’s most touching Instagram of herself kissing her husband of 23 years, Valeri, following her curtain call.

Fuller House. Final bow.

A post shared by Candace Cameron Bure (@candacecbure) on Nov 16, 2019 at 6:48am PST

While most of the Instagram’s commenters congratulated Candace on the successful series, others began asking questions about the photo. Some of Candace’s fans were confused about the man she was smooching, mistaking him for actor John Brotherton (who plays D.J.’s former flame Matt Harmon). Thinking Val was John, many started to believe this was a sign that D.J. ends up going back to the hunky vet instead of living happily ever after with her high school boyfriend, Steve (Scott Weinger).

Instagram Instagram Instagram

Take a deep breath, folks — the mystery man is definitely Val. Candace basically confirmed this when she liked a fan comment’s which read “pretty sure that’s her real life husband.” In other words, things are still looking up for Steve and D.J. shippers.

While the mystery surrounding Candace’s Instagram is solved, there are still so many questions about season 5 of Fuller House, which will likely come out in December. We do know one thing for sure, though — someone is definitely getting married. As far as which couple that will be — D.J. and Steve, Stephanie and Jimmy, or Fernando and Kimmy — that’s a detail Candace isn’t willing to spill.

“I think ,” she told Entertainment Tonight back in February. “We’re going to give fans a lot of the emotional stuff that you want to see and love about family, because we’re wrapping the show up.”

Candace Cameron Bure has no time for negativity in her life—or on her Instagram page.

The 42-year-old mother of three has been open about her formerly “destructive relationship with food” and her tough battle to overcome an eating disorder. Decades later, Bure has recovered from bulimia and says she “feels the most fit and strong that ever felt in life.” So when an internet troll attacked the actress’s physical appearance on social media, she was quick to fire back.

After Bure posted a sweet photo of herself and her 18-year-old son, Lev, one Instagram user made a negative comment about her weight: “All that exersizing , and you still look like you weigh more than your husband, did you change your diet?”


Bure initially responded to the commenter—who appeared to mistake her young son for her husband, Valeri Bure—with a quick, sarcastic remark:


However, after hundreds of other fans joined the conversation—all defending Bure against the body-shaming troll—she chimed in one more time.


“If a 25 inch waist looks big to you… then you’re looking through an altered lens. Be well,” she wrote. And that’s 👏 how 👏 it’s 👏 done! 👏 The Hallmark star has every right to defend the body she works so hard for.

“I feel a real sense of accomplishment about what my body can still do, and I want to keep it in shape and keep it strong for so many years that are ahead of me,” Bure told People. “You kind of take your body for granted when you’re younger, so the older I get the prouder I am of the things I’m able to do with it.”

And she shows off these “things” on Instagram regularly, sharing impressive photos and videos of her dedicated workouts.

Ellen DeGeneres talks ‘Fuller House’ with Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber, and Jodie Sweetin

With the premiere of Fuller House around the corner, cast members Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), and Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner-Fuller) went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote the upcoming sequel to Full House.

Ellen DeGeneres kicked off the interview by asking Sweetin, Barber, and Bure how old each of them were when they first filmed Full House. Barber and Bure were 10 years old and Sweetin was only 5 during the pilot episode of the series.

Bure also talked about how her on-screen relationship with Sweetin and Barber is very similar to how close they are in reality. Bure went on to talk about an instance where they all drank too much during a Christmas party and Bure didn’t want Barber to drive which actually happened in Full House. During an episode of Full House, Barber’s character Kimmy became heavily intoxicated and D.J. (Bure) pleaded to Kimmy not to drive because a drunk driving accident was how the Tanner children lost their mother on Full House.

Ellen asked the cast about a possible second season for Fuller House but so far Netflix hasn’t confirmed a follow up season. However, given the amount of anticipation for Fuller House, it is very probably that the series will be approved for another season. Especially if the first season garners a lot of viewers from the original Full House fanatics and perhaps even a new generation of fans.

Then Ellen asked the question that so many people continue to ask “Do you think the Olsen twins will make a guest appearance?” Bure replied “I don’t know, the door is open if they want to.” Bure went on to say “we make reference to them on the show though, so they are not forgotten we talk about them.” Sweetin also jumped in and said “Yeah we definitely acknowledge Michelle (Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen) being present.”

The plot of Fuller House centers on D.J. Tanner-Fuller who is a recent widow and a mother of three. When things become overwhelming for D.J., her sister Stephanie and her best friend Kimmy decide to move in with her to help her raise her three boys.

Fuller House premieres Friday, February 26 on Netflix.

Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber impressed fans with how well they can speak emoji.

On Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Fuller House co-stars played a game of “Explainy the Emoji Exploji” which had them reading off emoji-filled sentences from DeGeneres’ new app. After Sweetin guessed “Baby, hurry down the chimney tonight,” it was Bure’s turn.

“I wanna Netflix and chill in front of the fire with my sweetie pie,” the 40-year-old actress exclaimed, answering the riddle correctly. “And I do, and I do.”

Sweetin quipped to her co-star, “You know what Netflix and chill means, right?”

“Yes I do, Jodie!” Bure insisted.

The sitcom stars also sat down with DeGeneres to talk about season two of Netflix’s Fuller House and the array of guest stars. Bure and Barber admitted that having New Kids on the Block on set was a big moment for them. “My 13 year old dreams came true,” Bure exclaimed.

“The emoji with hearts coming out of the eyes, that was us,” Barber added.

Sweetin and Bure also spoke to ET about the new season, further revealing what fans can expect. “There are definitely going to be some more throwback guest stars on this season,” Bure said. “So, old Full House fans will have fun seeing some very familiar faces.”

Fuller House season two starts streaming on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 9.

Candace Helaine Cameron Bure (born April 6, 1976) is the actress who plays the protagonist role of D.J. Tanner-Fuller on Full House and Fuller House.

Early life

Candace Cameron Bure was born in Panorama City, California, to Robert Cameron and Barbara Bausmith. Following in the footsteps of her older brother Kirk, she decided to pursue acting. She started in the entertainment business by appearing in a number of television commercials. Her first acting job was a commercial for insurance, but the commercial never aired. Soon after, she started potraying roles on shows like St. Elsewhere, Growing Pains , and Who’s the Boss?Candace attended Nevada Ave. Elementary School in West Hills, California.


When she got the chance to audition for and got the role of D.J. Tanner-Fuller on Full House, she impressed the studio executives and producers so much that they delayed taping the pilot episode to allow her to complete work on her other obligations. The show had an eight-year run.

While on Full House, Cameron Bure was also featured in a few television movies. She played an abused teenager in No One Would Tell and a date-raped teenager in She Cried No followed by Night Scream, in which she had starring roles. Cameron Bure also guest starred in the failed TV pilot Real Mature on ABC and in one episode of Bill Nye The Science Guy as “Candace The Science Gal.” She also appeared in the film Punchline with Tom Hanks and Field and appeared in an episode of the sitcom Punky Brewster in the mid-1980s. In 1987, she had a role as the youngest sister of Eric Stoltz in the teen comedy Some Kind of Wonderful, which was produced by John Hughes.

Cameron Bure has hosted the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in 1990 with Dave Coulier and David Faustino, and again in 1994 with Joey Lawrence and Marc Weiner, becoming the first person to host twice or more (followed by Whitney Houston, Rosie O’Donnell and Jack Black).

Following the end of Full House,as D.J. Tanner-Fuller. Cameron Bure guest starred on such network hits as Cybill and Boy Meets World. Following the birth of her children, she took a self-imposed hiatus from television and film to devote all of her time to her family and children. In the 2000s, she appeared as an interview on the retrospective TV specials I Love the ’80s and I Love the ’80s Strikes Back, and was one of the hosts of 50 Cutest Child Stars: All Grown Up on the E! network, along with Keshia Knight Pulliam of The Cosby Show fame. In 2006, Cameron Bure guest starred on the sitcom That’s So Raven. The following year, she co-starred with Randy Travis in The Wager , and starred with Tom Arnold in the television movie Moonlight and Mistletoe for the Hallmark Channel in 2008.

Cameron Bure returned to a television series in 2009, after being cast in Make It or Break It, a teenage drama on ABC Family, where she plays Summer Van Horn: a very interesting character.

In 2015, she began production on the 2016 Netflix spin-off Fuller House. She also became a co-host on The View

Personal life

While filming Full House, Candace actually had a teacher who asked for her autograph in front of the whole class. This was just one of many instances where Candace ran into trouble with jealous schoolmates. According to Candace, they used to do things like push her & pull her hair, and they were “really cruel.” Around seasons five or six when Candace started her teen years, she was a far cry from being fat, but her slightly chubby frame was a cause of concern for many people. Because Growing Pains star Tracey Gold was recovering from anorexia at the time, everyone feared that Candace may be headed in the opposite direction, so her parents hired her a personal trainer. Candace has acknowledged that her weight was never something she gave any thought to when she was that age, but she respects her parents’ decision and says that it all turned out fine.

Candace attended Chatsworth High School in Chatsworth, California. She spoke at her graduation in the spring of 1988 and received a roaring ovation from the families there.

On June 22, 1996, Cameron Bure married NHL hockey player Valeri Bure (Valerij Vladimirovich Bure). They were introduced by Cameron Bure’s former Full House co-star Dave Coulier. She and Bure have three children: Natasha, Lev, and Maksim. They spend the majority of their time in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Plantation, Florida, where Valeri played for the nearby Florida Panthers. Her husband launched his own wine label, Bure Family Wines.

In 2006, as a reflection of her evangelical faith, she endorsed several online Christian homeschooling academies. She writes a monthly column for “Christian Women Online” and speaks at churches throughout the country. She is currently a spokesperson for National House of Hope, a Christian organization for teens based out of Orlando, FL.

Candace has stated that she will not accept further roles in film or television that would make her go against her Christian principles, and that she will not do scenes involving any kind of nudity.

Candace has done charity work with the Starlight Foundation and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, serving as the “Kid’s Club” President and International Youth Ambassador.


As a conservative (particularly a Christian conservative) and a Republican, she has voiced her views on such issues as same-sex marriage. In 2012, on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, she showed her support (along with other Christian conservatives) for the fast food chain and its CEO Dan Cathy’s stance on traditional marriage, to counter a boycott of the restaurant launched by same-sex marriage activists. After becoming a co-host on The View, she became involved in a debate with co-host (also a former child star) Raven Symone, about her support of a local bakery’s decision not to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding as it violated their religious freedoms/beliefs. She has, however, stated that she has no problem with LGBT storylines on Fuller House.

Also on The View, the day after the San Bernadino massacre in 2015, she reiterated her support for the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and, while not explicitly mentioning any opinions or anything else on gun control, said that both parties need to come to solutions to prevent further shootings. She has, however, supported guns on campus due to the numerous school shootings (with the Newtown shooting being mentioned by her co-hosts).

Another hot-button issue she has been most vocal about is abortion. During her time on The View, she voiced herself as the pro-life panelist.

In 2016, she became one of many celebs to participate in a campaign called “Peanuts Rock the Vote”. In her video, she describes the various Peanuts characters (Lucy, Charlie Brown, Sally, Linus, Franklin, and Snoopy) as different types of candidates.

At the time of the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign season until Election Day, Bure was not sure who she would vote for. However, after Donald Trump had won the Republican nomination and chose Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate, she said that she would have preferred someone more diverse, like Ben Carson (who Trump later chose to be HUD Secretary). She also admitted that in the past, she was not sure about Hillary Clinton running for president (before she went on to win the Democratic nomination), but then remarked that her views about it were evolving.

Also in 2016 on The View, she was involved in a debate on the controversy of protesting during the National Anthem and then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s reasons for starting it. She points out that while he has donated over $1 million to various causes, there are other ways he could have protested instead of kneeling during the anthem.

‘Fuller House’ cast mourns death of beloved colleague, Cosmo the golden retriever

“Fuller House” cast members are mourning the loss of a member of their TV family, Cosmo the golden retriever.

Cosmo, who was 4, died after complications from surgery. The show’s Twitter account announced the news Monday, accompanied by photos of the dog, who started on the Netflix comedy as a pup.

“We’re sad to share that the Fullers’ faithful dog Cosmo, who grew up on our set, passed away after complications from surgery,” the tweet said of the dog, who answered by the same name on the show and in real life. “There will never be another quite like our boy. We’ll miss him forever.”

Netflix released the first nine episodes of the fifth and final season of “Fuller House,” a sequel to popular ABC sitcom “Full House” (1987-1995), earlier this month. The second half of the season, which has completed filming, will premiere in 2020.

Cosmo had appeared in other shows, including “Suits” and “The Middle.” according to a March interview with his trainer, Denise Sanders. The dog died a couple of weeks before the end of production, according to a touching Instagram tribute video by Elias Harger, 12, who plays Max, one of the Fuller children.

Cast members chimed in on social media Monday, sharing their love and sense of loss for their cute colleague. Candace Cameron Bure, who played child D.J. Tanner on “Full House” and portrays mom D.J. Tanner-Fuller on “Fuller House,” referenced Comet, the family dog on the original series.

“Our sweet boy Cosmo is now running around in doggie heaven. I imagine he’s playing with Comet right now,” she tweeted. “Cosmo has been in Fuller House since the start and we are heartbroken that he passed away during surgery complications. You’ll be so missed love bug.”

Jodie Sweetin, who has played Stephanie Tanner on both “House” shows, also shared loving sentiments.

“As you may have heard, our beloved Cosmo has passed away. He had gone in for surgery and suffered complications. Our little Cosmo was always such a good boy and our hearts are (broken),” she finished, with a broken-heart emoji closing the tweet.

Elias Harger, 12, who plays D.J.’s son, Max, is seen with Cosmo in pictures shared in tweets by the show and Cameron Bure. He paid tribute to his friend on Instagram, noting their first “Fuller” appearance together in the fifth episode of Season 1.

He sweetly remembers how they grew up together on the show and the sad moment when Cameron Bure, Sweetin and co-star Andrea Barber sat down with him to share the news of Cosmo’s death.

“Two weeks before the end of @fullerhouse, I lost my buddy. I made this video to honor @cosmofullerhouse.” Another broken-heart emoji.

A Cosmo Instagram account thanks cast members, fans and others for their condolences. “Thank you to everyone for all the kind words, condolences and prayers for Cosmo. To say that Cosmo was an incredible dog does not even begin to capture how truly magnificent he was.”
