'90s kids rejoice—John Stamos (a.k.a. Uncle Jesse) confirmed that after 10 long years, Full House is officially coming back. Netflix ordered 13 episodes for the big revival, which will be called Fuller House and will virtually air in 2016. The spin-off will be produced by Warner Horizon Television with Full House creator Jeff Franklin as the creator and executive producer.
“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,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content for Netflix, in an announcement.
But, be warned: The story line for reboot is a tad depressing. D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) is a widowed veterinarian with two sons and is expecting her third child; younger sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) is an aspiring musician; and former neighbor Kimmy (Andrea Barber) decides to move back to San Francisco to help D.J. out during this difficult life adjustment. We will most likely need tissues for the premiere.
Stamos will produce and guest star in Fuller House. Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin are in talks to make appearances as well. It wouldn't be the same without the whole Tanner family, though. After all, we did follow them through eight years and 192 episodes.
“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," said creator Jeff Franklin, executive producers Robert L. Boyett, and Thomas L. Miller in a joint statement.
