Everywhere You Look: All the Surprising Familiar Faces Who Have Starred in 'Fuller House'


Season 3 of the Full House spin-off series, titled Fuller House, just hit Netflix – and if you are anything like us over here at J-14, then you have most likely already binge-watched the entire batch of new episodes. One of the greatest aspects of the show is the feeling of nostalgia you get when they throw it back to a character or storyline from the original series. In fact, there have been a bunch of '80s and '90s guest-stars that make Fuller House all that more reminiscent of the OG sitcom – which by the way, has truly stood the test of time.

The stars of the past aren't the only familiar faces in Fuller House though. Some of your fave Disney Channel stars have taken on the roles of the younger generation, and it's really exciting to see the worlds collide in the nostalgic series. It's the perfect balance of new and old, if you ask us.

Marla Sokoloff

Marla reprises her role of Gia in Fuller House. Her character was known for having a bad influence on Stephanie Tanner during high school, and now her daughter is ready to start some trouble in the spin-off.

Landry Bender

You knew her from Disney Channel, and now she's in Fuller House. Landry previously played Cleo Bernstein in Crash & Bernstein and Cyd Ripley in Best Friends Whenever. Her Fuller House character is Jackson Fuller's classmate Rocki, who just so happens to be Gia's younger daughter. So obviously, she's a bit rough around the edges.

Isaak Presley

Stuck in the Middle star Isaak Presley plays Popko, the love interest of Kimmy Gibbler's daughter Ramona.

New Kids on the Block

You can't have an '80's/'90s spin-off series without a legendary pop group of the era. That's why boy band New Kids on the Block made their appearance in Season 2.

Maksim & Val Chmerkovskiy

Dancing With the Stars brothers Maksim and Val show off their movies in Season 1 when D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy decide to have a girls' night out. Jodie Sweetin, AKA Stephanie Tanner, then starred in Season 22 of DWTS.

McKenna Grace

Aside from starring in the movie Gifted, McKenna has appeared in tons of Disney Channel shows from K.C. Undercover to Dog With a Blog. In Fuller House, the young actress plays Max Fuller's elementary school girlfriend Rose.

Bruno Tonioli

Dancing With the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli plays Ramona's dance teacher in an episode of Season 2.

David Lipper

David Lipper played D.J. Tanner's bad boy love interest Viper in Full House, and he returned for the high school reunion episode of the spin-off.

Alan Thicke

Alan Thicke passed away in 2016 of a heart attack, but he was best known for playing Jason Seaver in the '80s/'90s series Growing Pains. He was a legend, and his Fuller House appearance was truly epic.

Scott Menville

Scott Menville was the actor who played Kimmy Gibbler's boyfriend Duane in Full House. His character was a bit of a dud, who didn't say much besides "whatever." In the high school reunion episode of Fuller House, it is revealed that he became a motivational speaker with his "whatever" outlook on life.

Macy Gray

The singer-songwriter performed in an episode where D.J., Steph and Kimmy hit the club.
