Candace Cameron Bure and brother Kirk Cameron will finally appear on-screen together again for the first time in over three decades. With the fifth and final season of Fuller House set to premiere on Netflix starting Dec. 6, Cameron Bure has been dishing some details on the show's curtain call as the date comes closer. In a new interview with Closer Weekly, Cameron Bure revealed Kirk will be featured in an episode of the final season, which will also include musician Lisa Loeb. Here's what Cameron Bure said about the upcoming sibling reunion on Fuller House.
"My brother Kirk is in an episode this season, so that was a really fun surprise... It's a little bit of, like, a '90s episode, so Lisa Loeb is in it as well as my brother Kirk. And that week I was directing as well... it was a dream come true to direct my brother."
This will be the second time Kirk Cameron has appeared in the Fuller House universe, as he previously played D.J.'s cousin Steve in a 1988 episode of Full House. At this time, it's not clear if he will be reprising this same role for Fuller House, but it does seem likely when considering how many other actors from the original series reprised their roles for the spinoff. Meanwhile, Cameron Bure also appeared in a couple episodes of her brother's sitcom Growing Pains in 1987 and 1988. The two have not shared the screen in a movie or TV series since, making Fuller House the first time they've done so in over 30 years.
According to Candace Cameron Bure, her brother made the collaboration as easy as could be by respecting her role as the director of their episode and doing everything that was asked of him. She also described his performance as feeling like Kirk "never stopped doing a sitcom." Certainly, doing Growing Pains for seven years probably made sitcom acting feel like second nature for Kirk; he reprised his leading role from the series for two television movie sequels in 2000 and 2004. More recently, he headlined the faith-based Christian comedy movie Saving Christmas, which unfortunately earned him a Golden Raspberry Award win for Worst Actor.
Most of the usual suspects will also be returning for the final season of Fuller House. This includes Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie, Andrea Barber as Kimmy, Michael Campion as Jackson, Elias Harger as Max, Soni Nicole Bringas as Ramona, Juan Pablo Di Pace as Fernando, and Scott Weinger as Steve. D.J.'s father and uncles, Danny, Jesse, and Joey, will all be back as well with Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier reprising the roles for a final time. Aunt Becky will apparently have no presence in the season whatsoever after Netflix cut loose Lori Loughlin as a result of her alleged involvement in the college admissions bribery scandal that became public back in March.
The fifth and final season of Fuller House will debut on Netflix on Dec. 6. For big fans of the spinoff series and its parent show Full House, saying goodbye to the Tanners (and the Fullers) won't be easy, but there's always a chance we may one day get a Fullest House to make a trilogy of TV shows.
