Today is a great day for ’90s children everywhere. Fuller House announced that New Kids On The Block will stop by the Tanner home this coming season.
Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber and Candace Cameron Bure all wore shirts bearing the name of the boy band, which the show’s account posted to Twitter.
“@candacecbure @JodieSweetin @andreabarber got The Right Stuff to welcome some special guest stars! @NKOTB #NKOTBFH!”
Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight and Jonathan Knight might be the spin-off’s answer to The Beach Boys, who were regular guest stars on the original series, thanks to Uncle Jesse (Elvis wasn’t availabe for obvious reasons).
Bure brought this up during a February interview with Rotten Tomatoes.
“We never got New Kids on the Block,” she said.
“Fuller House is over its growing pains. Renewed season 2. See you there. See me on it,” Thicke tweeted, tagging both Bure and Bob Saggett.
Thicke wouldn’t give away much, but he did tell E! that he plays someone who is set up with one of D.J.’s friends.
John Stamos, who serves as the series’ executive producer, divulged a little bit about season two, which is set to premiere later this year on Netflix.
“There are a few guest stars that could be surprises for everybody that I’m working on, but as far as the show, we’re just in a better place to make a good, solid sitcom now,” he said.
Ok, important question: What song (if any) will NKOTB play? Probably “The Right Stuff” but I’m hoping for “Step By Step.”
