Candace Cameron Bure Talks ‘Fuller House,’ Her Family Life, and More
You could never say that Candace Cameron Bure only slept three hours last night.
She arrives bright and radiant to all of her Good Housekeeping photo coverage in late January around 10:45 a.m. after appearing on two-morning television shows a few hours earlier. Dressed in a poppy-red dress and full makeup, Candace greets everyone before taking a seat on a stool inside the studio. Straightening her dress on her lap, she politely requests a cup of tea, then lets out a festive expiration: for a brief moment during a day otherwise filled with camera appearances and events to promote her new book for children, Cultivating Candace Grow, Candace is ready to think about all this – her past, present and future projects.
Fuller House, the Netflix series, which finished filming its fifth and final season in November, is the most obvious. Although Candace captured a lot of hugs and warm tears on social media in the days leading up to (and on the day of) the final recording, she is currently in a place where she can chat about it without getting emotional. That said, when the last episodes of season 5 are available on Netflix, it could be another story.
“I don’t think reality has struck yet. And I don’t think it will likely be until summer that we won’t come back,” said Candace, settling in her chair. “I’m definitely more comfortable now than I was when we finished filming. But it was difficult at the end.”
And it’s understandable. In recent years, acting – and sometimes realizing – the reboot of the famous sitcom of the 90s Full house was a huge source of joy for Candace. The realization that this could be the final arc for his beloved television character D.J. Tanner is difficult to deal with. But even still, Candace looks at the positive side of it all – even if the series ends, her close relationships with her co-stars, including Jodie sweetin and Andrea Barber, certainly not.
