Surprise, Kirk Cameron Will Be In Fuller House's Final Season And It Sounds Awesome

Fuller House will wrap its run as the hit Full House spinoff when the fifth and final season concludes (without a certain somebody), but not before Kirk Cameron drops by for an appearance on his sister's series. The Growing Pains actor is joining Fuller House before the final credits roll, and in an episode that Candace Cameron Bure is directing. Bure shared some of what to expect when the Growing Pains alum jumps to the universe of another classic sitcom, saying this:

The appearance of Lisa Loeb in an episode of Fuller House Season 5 was revealed when the trailer released back in November, but Candace Cameron Bure's reveal that her big brother will appear as well undoubtedly comes as the best kind of surprise for viewers looking for an extra dose of 90s TV nostalgia. Kirk Cameron starred as Mike Seaver in ABC's Growing Pains, so his should be a familiar face to a fair amount of Fuller House fans.

Interestingly, Kirk Cameron is credited with appearing in a 1988 episode of Full House, playing a character by the name of "Cousin Steve." I doubt that Fuller House is reprising a 1988 one-off Full House character in its final season, although it would be worth a laugh if Cousin Steve is suddenly relevant again more than 30 years after he appeared. Candace Cameron Bure also appeared in a couple episodes of Growing Pains back in the late 80s.

What sister could resist the impulse to give her brother a hard time, especially when she could cite a go-kart incident as motivation to want to get back at him? In all seriousness, it sounds like Candace Cameron Bure and Kirk Cameron had a great experience working on Fuller House together. Fuller House Season 5 will feature both a fictional family and some real-life family!
