Cut. It. Out!
Fuller House creator Jeff Franklin just revealed a seriously surprising development about one of the show’s character in season 2.
In an interview with TVLine, Franklin said that Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) actually has a family back in Las Vegas, including a wife and four kids!
In fact, they are currently casting for his wife Ginger, who is described as an “enthusiastic, upbeat, fun-loving magician,” who is also “a little clueless in the parenting department.”
So why didn’t Joey’s fam make the cut for season 1?
“It didn’t make it into the script, but at one point, we had him with a wife and kids back in Vegas,” Franklin explained.
“It just didn’t fit anywhere in the stories we developed,” executive producer Bob Boyett added. “We had Joey — in the stories we were using him — come in for specific reasons. We just haven’t gotten to everything yet, and we don’t get to everything, even in the 13 episodes.”
Move over, Mr. Woodchuck!
