Fuller House Season 2 Will (Finally) Introduce Joey's Wife and Kids

Bad news for Mr. Woodchuck: Fuller House is giving Joey Gladstone a real live love interest in Season 2.

The Netflix comedy is set to introduce Joey’s wife Ginger, an “enthusiastic, upbeat, fun-loving magician,” TVLine has learned. We’ll meet her in the season’s sixth episode, during which the Gladstones crash the Fuller/Tanner/Gibblers’ Thanksgiving festivities. Like her impression-happy hubby, Ginger is said to be “a little clueless in the parenting department.”

If you’re wondering why there was no mention of Ginger — or the four children she shares with Joey — in the show’s first season, it all came down to timing.

“It didn’t make it into the script, but at one point, we had him with a wife and kids back in Vegas,” series creator Jeff Franklin told TVLine prior to the series’ debut in February.

Added executive producer Bob Boyett, “It just didn’t fit anywhere in the stories we developed. We had Joey — in the stories we were using him — come in for specific reasons. We just haven’t gotten to everything yet, and we don’t get to everything, even in the 13 episodes.”

(One last thing: We have it on good authority that Joey’s wife is not Ginger the Chimp, whom we met in the Full House Season 5 episode “Too Much Monkey Business.”)

  1. Wait, Joey helped raise three kids for years. How is he a “little clueless in the parenting department?” THAT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE.

  2. I am fairly certain a lot of non-Conservatively minded Full House / Fuller House fans were hoping Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) had a husband rather than a wife. Relatively speaking, it really is not all that surprising Joey would have a wife.

    Joey having a wife panders to right-wing thinkers; you know, the ones that complained about the first season of Fuller House not being as “family friendly” as they would have liked. When I reference right-wing thinkers, I mean those people that hanker after a reality reminiscent of the 1950s.

    Whilst it might be unfortunate for right wing thinkers we don’t live in the mid-twentieth century, it is even more unfortunate for the rest of us living in the real world that the Fuller House producers have not recognized that fact. In not establishing a stable same-gender married couple as part of either the regular or reoccurring Fuller House cast members, producers appear to have looked to establishing a more conservative audience.

      Or it could just be because he’s always been straight, so why would they change it?

    • Winter says:

      Joey has always dated women, been interested in women, and talked about wanting to marry women. It makes zero sense to make him gay now. Sometimes it just takes longer to find love than your friends it doesn’t mean you didn’t because you were always secretly gay.

      By all means introduce gay characters and families. I think that would be great especially since they are in San Francisco. But don’t go rewriting history for the sake of filling a quota which is what it would feel like to me. I would rather have something that felt genuine and true.

    This isn’t an exclusive. Dave coulier announced this on ew radio’s la daily last week. Sorry Michael you got scooped

  4. Tom says:

    We’re all hoping she’s played by Alanis Morrisette right?

    • Winter says:

      Oh my god that would be great!

      • Will says:

        OMG…make this happen. Her first line could be “I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner”…(which according to Bob Saget, when she used that lyric he was actually AT the dinner Alanis was interrupting).

        Man this would be AWESOME!!!!

    • Evan says:

      Misty Lee would be the perfect choice. Actress/actual magician.

      But Alanis would be perfectly ironic!

    It’s cool Joey has a family. I think four kids is a lot but it would be cool to meet them. When Joey came in for an episode to babysit DJ’s kids, why didn’t he bring his kids with him? Why isn’t his kids close with DJ’s kids? It would be cool for DJ’s middle son to have a crush on Joey’s daughter. Then 20 years in the future we could have a Fuller Fuller house with Joey’s daughter and DJ’s son getting married and having a family. Or Joey’s son and Kimmie’s son getting together.

  6. Natalia says:

    They should add an unexpected pregnancy for Stephanie.

    • Baltimees says:

      That would be shock to everyone (Tanners and Fullers) because they know that Stephanie may be infertile.

  7. Baltimees says:

    I wish for TGIF/ DCLAU (Disney Channel Live Action Universe) crossover. YES, Fuller House is related to Disney Shows (Full House did crossover with Family Matters, which did crossover with Step by Step, which did crossover Boy Meets World. And since Girl Meets World is BMW’s sequel and it’s airing in Disney Channel, GMW did crossover with Austin & Ally and Best Friends Whenever).

    * Tanners and Fullers are visiting New York to see Michelle. They drop by at Topanga’s and when Stephanie sees Topanga, she mention that Topanga looks like her friend back in 90s)
    * Austin & Ally performing in San Francisco. Lola is huge Austin Moon fan and Jackson then tries to get tickets. We later find out that Jackson is Ally’s fan. The whole episode could be similar to Beach Boys episode.

    I am glad to hear Joey has his own family. I always thought he would make a great parent once he found the right women.
