John Stamos announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Monday that they are ready to bring back the 90s classic Full House with a spinoff. It is official people, it is no more a rumor, Full House is coming back as Fuller House on TV.
Netflix has finally ordered the drama, 13 episodes will release somewhere in 2016 beginning with a one hour special which will feature the maximum characters from Full House and then the show will hit off with the spinoff.
Stamos said that they have been working on this project for many years now. They wanted to bring back the show when it connected well and didn’t leave a sense of disparity. Now he believes that the show is perfectly pitched and it is time to bring it back.
“We’ve been working on this for many, many years”
Netflix also confirmed the revival of the show in an official press release, VP of Original Content at 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.”
“In ’Fuller House,’ the adventures that began in 1987 on ’Full House’ continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure) pregnant and recently widowed, living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys — the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and her soon-to-arrive baby.”- Official Fuller House Synopsis
The spinoff starts as a reunion and later goes into the storyline itself. Jesse Katsopolis played by Stamos will be working as the producer however; he will be making guest appearances. D.J. Tanner will be returning to the show along with her three sons, Stephanie Tanner and Kimmy Gibbler.
Bob Saget, Olsen sisters, Lori Loughlin and Dave Coulier are still in talks with the production team. Full House was an ABC sitcom that aired from 1987 till 1995.
