Suzanne Somers is being remembered for her role in the classic TV series Three’s Company as fans mourn her passing, but some people want to be sure she’s also remembered for her hit TGIF show Step by Step.
Somers was a familiar face for multiple generations of audiences. The actress had her first major break when she landed the role of Chrissy Snow alongside John Ritter. Chrissy’s wholesome yet ditzy personality won hearts in the ’70s and remains one of the most iconic characters of the decade.
In 1991, Suzanne Somers returned to the screen for Step by Step. In that series, she plays a down-to-earth single mom of three, Carol Foster Lambert, who falls in love with a single dad of three. The two get married in a whirlwind romance and bring all six children under one roof. The modern take on The Brady Bunch ran for seven seasons, and nearly all ’90s kids watched it every Friday night.
X account, Anila’s Missing Tooth posted a tribute to the late actress today and included the opening from Step by Step. It has since gandered over 1K likes and more than 250K views.
“RIP Suzanne Somers!” reads the post. “Step by Step was my show growing up!”
“Yes, great show. I loved the TGIF lineup on Friday nights. Definitely grew up watching her,” another added.
“I couldn’t wait for Friday’s to watch this! RIP Suzanne Somers!” a fan mourned.
