Fuller House Spoilers

Fuller House Adds Switched at Birth Actor as Kimmy's Brother (and Stephanie's Boyfriend?) in Season 2

The Gibbler family tree is sprouting a surprisingly hunky branch when Fuller House returns for Season 2.

Adam Hagenbuch, best known for playing Daphne’s boyfriend Mingo — yes, Mingo — on Freeform’s Switched at Birth, will appear in the Netflix comedy as Jimmy, the never-before-mentioned brother of Kimmy, E! Online reports.

(Side note: TVLine previously reported that a character named Jimmy, described as being a “touch on the weird side,” was being introduced as a love interest for Stephanie in Season 2. Could DJ’s little sister really have the hots for… a Gibbler?!)

Of course, Jimmy isn’t the only estranged family member we’ll meet in Fuller‘s second season. The sitcom, returning globally on Dec. 9, will finally introduce Joey’s Las Vegas-based family. His children, as well as wife Ginger, will make their debut in the Thanksgiving episode.

    He’s great as Mingo and on Undateable. Still wouldn’t get me to watch Fuller House.

    This guy initially reminded me of a poor man’s Ashton Kutcher on SAB but he grew on me so think this could be a good fit. I think he could play weird/cool well and would be a good foil for Steph.

    I thought Kimmy did have a brother in the original series that was mentioned but never seen. I think I remember him being older than her because there was an episode where Kimmy borrowed his car and then they decided to do a “fire drill” around it at an intersection and wound up getting locked out.

    im excited for kimmy’s brother to be on fuller house and i’m going to enjoy watching it in season 2 on netflix

    If we are adding to the “wish list” for season 2, how about bringing back Marla Sokoloff as Gia? She and Jodie had a great chemistry on screen, and it would be interesting to see if that friendship survived into adulthood.

  6. So Joey married his girlfriend comedienne from the last season who embarrassed the family in her first appearance at the Smash Club and then got Jesse pissed off on the Rush Hour Renegades… Just like Joey to do something like that…
