I’ll admit I fell for this one, since I saw it last night on Netflix and as we all know, April Fool’s jokes are supposed to end at midday. I simply assumed he’d got a new show and that Netflix were doing their best to publicise it:
I’m afraid I didn’t get as far as watching the trailer:
Turns out that Netflix doesn’t realise that April Fool’s day jokes are supposed to end at all, because it’s now put out a video in which John Stamos ‘discovers’ it was all an April Fool’s joke.
Mr. Stamos is a valued partner of ours & we’re working hard to make things right.

Look at the timestamp on that: 8.37pm! Midday, Netflix! Midday!
I don’t know what’s funnier, though – the whole thing or the person who replied to that Tweet asking “when is sense8 season 2 coming”.
