“Fuller House” brought “The Right Stuff”
to Season 2!
The Netflix hit welcomed a cameo from boy band New Kids on
the Block in Episode 10, an occasion star and NKOTB fan Andrea Barber admitted had
been decades in the making.
“We’ve been wanting New Kids on the Block on this show
for 30 years,” she said, in a new featurette from the streaming network
that debuted on Tuesday.
The singers themselves also dished on their trip to the Tanner household, which Joey McIntyre said was a change of pace for the guys.
“Back in the day, we never did any guest spots,” he said. “So yeah, it was fun!”
Brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight admitted, however, that they had been aware of the show’s invitation.
“We’ve been on their radar and they wanted us here so bad,” Jonathan said. “It’s so cool that we were finally able to do it.”
According to Andrea and Candace, the wait was worth it.
“They were so good!” Candace said of watching NKOTB in action. “They were really funny.”
Although the group performed during their appearance in addition to having playful dialogue, Andrea revealed that just being on set with them was enough.
“Seeing the New Kids on the Block in the living room, on the ‘Fuller House couch, blew my mind,” she said.
“Fuller House” Season 2 is available now on Netflix.
