Hollywood Darlings: The 90s Continue to Make a Comeback

Standard

Growing up in the 90s, you were bound to watch Full House, 7th Heaven or Step by Step…or all three. And what better way to make our 90s hearts happy than with a reality series with stars from each of these shows?

Well that happiness easily comes with the announcement of Hollywood Darlings on Pop. The unscripted docu-comedy series will star Jodie Sweetin of Full House, Beverley Mitchell of 7th Heaven and Christine Lakin of Step by Step.

Sweetin posted this photo to her Instagram on Tuesday with the caption, “Yay! I can finally announce my series with @beverleymitchell and @yolakin coming to @poptv next year!! I love these ladies and we’re going to have so much fun!!”

Hollywood Darlings will be a half-hour show following the three actresses who have grown from child stars to moms, wives and businesswomen. The network has ordered eight episodes and the promise of other celebrity guest appearances has also been made.

“Anyone who was a TV fan in the ‘90s grew up with Jodie, Christine and Beverley–aspiring to be their best friends, wanting to dress like them and using their popular catchphrases,” Pop’s senior vice president of original programming and development, Paul Adler, said in a statement, “Hollywood Darlings provides an amazing opportunity for viewers to reignite their fandom for this now grown-up trio whose lives are as entertaining as they are relatable.”

How’s that for a Throwback Thursday? I for one was obsessed with Full House and 7th Heaven growing up but got into Step by Step more so later on when reruns aired on television. And I’m actually interested to see how this series plays out along with which celebs will be making guest appearances!  Too bad 2017 is still a bit far off at the moment.

Until next time, leave me your thoughts on Hollywood Darlings and since it is TBT I’d love to hear some throwback memories you may have from any and/or all of these three 90s shows!

So much for the critics huh? I was so nervous going into my Season 1 viewing of Fuller House after reading such horrible reviews from the critics. But as I watched the show, I ended up loving it!

It had some corny aspects to it and family show cliches but Full House wasn’t much different. Fuller House had plenty of great aspects to it, nods to Full House (even showing past scenes from the show…and yes, I did have a mini fangirl moment when they showed young DJ and Steve) along with some one-liners or innuendos made by characters that unless you’re a 80s/90s kid all grown up or just an adult watching the show, they might have gone over some viewers’ heads.

Despite any negative reviews others gave it, Fuller House made me feel like a kid again and I’m excited to see what’s in store for Season 2!

The one thing I’m holding out for is DJ and Steve finally ending up back together. As much as I did end up liking Matt, Dj and Steve are endgame in my book. (Oh, also, side note: can we maybe let Steve’s crazy obsession with DJ die down a teeny tiny bit? I adore how much he cares about her but maybe don’t make Steve seem like a crazy person…? Just my two cents! Because DJ and Steve were one of my first OTPs before that was even a thing)

We’ll also have to wait and see if there will ever be a return for Michelle aka Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I’m not holding my breath but you never know. Although, series creator Jeff Franklin still has hope that either one or both twins will change their minds.

“I am still hopeful that Mary-Kate or Ashley or both of them will come back and be a part of it, even if it’s just for an hour. We miss that. Everybody does feel that hole in the family,” Franklin told E! News, “But it’s like, all family reunions, there’s always somebody that doesn’t show up. But hopefully next time around, we’ll have them back.”

Until next time, you can catch all thirteen episodes of Fuller House Season 1 on Netflix now and let me know your thoughts of the show in the comments below!
