Earlier this month, we reported that a Netflix revival of the popular TV series Full House was in the works. We now have more information on the revival, as John Stamos has confirmed that there will, in fact, be 13 episodes of a new show titled Fuller House, and it will air on Netflix. Stamos made the announcement on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, April 20. Fuller House will debut in 2016.
Stamos, who will serve as a producer, as well as guest star in Fuller House says, “we’ve been working on this for many, many years.” He goes on to say that Fuller House will begin with a one-hour reunion episode, and then begin with a spinoff series. Candace Cameron-Bure will reprise her role as D.J. Tanner, and will now have three kids. Jodie Sweetin will also return to play D.J.’s sister, Stephanie Tanner. Andrea Barber is set to come back and play the neighbor, and D.J.’s best friend, Kimmy Gibler.
Netflix released a statement saying that they were in discussions with Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Rebecca Katsopolis), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), and of course the Olsen Twins (Michelle Tanner), in regards to guest appearances on the show. While there is no confirmation, we believe that all of them will return for at least one or two episodes. It can only help their career at this point.
Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content for Netflix said in a statement, “As big fans of the original Full House, we are thrilled to be able to introduce Fuller House’s new narrative to existing fans worldwide, who grew up on the original, as well as a new generation of global viewers that have grown up with the Tanners in syndication.”
Executive Producers Robert L. Boyett, Jeff Franklin, and Thomas L. Miller tell E! News, “The continued support of Full House fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding…The love you saw on the show as real. The cast has remained a loving family off screen all these years. WE are as excited as our fans to finally bring Full House back to life.”
Let us know if you will be tuning in to Fuller House when it is released on Netflix in 2016.
