Have mercy! A thirteen-episode Full House reunion series is definitely happening. And it'll feature pregnant widow D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron-Bure) raising her two sons with sister (and aspiring musician) Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and BFF Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), who has a "feisty teenage daughter Ramona."
The show will be called Fuller House, and our prediction from earlier this month appears correct: "Presumably it's 'Fuller' because the Tanners have taken on at least a dozen roommates with San Francisco's housing crisis in full swing." Anyway, John "Uncle Jesse" Stamos revealed details on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night:
Stamos said, "It’s a labor of love. We’ve been literally trying for so many years to do it right, and I think we’ve finally got it perfect." He also said they are "trying to get everybody" to appear—calling fashion maven billionaires Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen—and explained that there will be an hour-long special and then "it'll go into the spinoff."
Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said, "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, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin said, "The continued support of Full House fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding. It is an honor and a thrill to catch up with these beloved characters and explore their lives today. The love you saw on the show was 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."
