All your 90’s television dreams are coming true. As we previously reported, there will be 13 brand new episodes of Full House coming to Netflix. All the talk about a reunion were just rumors and “in the works” until last night when John Stamos appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and said that just “five minutes ago,” it was confirmed.
Here’s the quick facts:
– It will debut in 2016.
– It will be called Fuller House.
– The first hour will feature a reunion of most, if not all, of the cast.
– The series will continue to be more like a spinoff centering around D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron-Bure), along with her sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and neighbor Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
– D.J. is now a pregnant veterinarian who is recently widowed and living in San Francisco. Her sister Stephanie, an aspiring musician, and BFF Kimmy, a fellow single mom, both move in to help raise D.J.’s two boys—the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max—plus her soon-to-arrive baby.
– Netflix said in a statement Monday that discussions with Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Rebecca Katsopolis), Ashley Olsen (Michelle Tanner),Mary-Kate Olsen (Michelle Tanner) and Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) regarding guest appearances are ongoing.
– If the Olson twins aren’t interested in participating, Jimmy Kimmel might play Michelle…wait, what?
