The little girl known as DJ Tanner on Full House is truly all grown up, and she’s taking over television once more.  Candace Cameron Bure has been slated for a role on ABC Family’s new drama Make It or Break It.  The new series revolves on the competitive lives of aspiring young gymnasts who are struggling to make it through to the Olympics.

Even though audiences of Make It or Break It are probably too young to remember the star of the 1990s hit show, they might as well get used to her.  Candace Cameron Bure booked the role of Summer on the new series, playing a stepmother to one of the female gymnasts.

While there hasn’t been any update regarding which among the cast is her stepdaughter, it seems as though the series will be a big step for the star.  Though her credentials are limited to her role on Full House, it’s still a commendable feat.

Bure was able to snag a number of nominations for the role she played growing up, from a Young Artist Award to a TV Land Award.  It was in 1994 that she finally won one for playing DJ Tanner – a Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Award for Favorite Television Actress.  Her participation on this year’s Make It or Break It would really add to her fame, or at least get her enough attention from her fans.

Full House was indeed the highest point of the actress’ career, but she has also been seen on a number of other shows.  She debuted with a small role in the series Alice, before making a name for herself as the character Megan White on St. Elsewhere.  She was also cast in Punky Brewster and Growing Pains, as well as on Bill Nye the Science Guy.  When Full House wrapped up in 1995, Bure took on roles in Cybill and Boy Meets World.  She then appeared on That’s So Raven before accepting the part in Make It or Break It in 2009.

Joining Bure on Make It or Break It are Cassie Scerbo, Peri Gilpin, Susan Ward, Chelsea Hobbs, Rosa Blasi, Ayla Kell, Josie Loren and Zachary Burr Abel.  Those who are feeling nostalgic should catch Candace Cameron Bure on the small screen when the ABC Family series airs on June 22.
