Confirmed: We Told You! Netflix Picks Up ‘Full House’ Reboot “Fuller House” John Stamos Confirms [Video]

Posted April 28, 2015


One of our biggest posts to this site to date is our story we reported on the reboot of 90’s sitcom ‘Full House’. We told you HERE back in November 2013 that the iconic series which launched the career of the Olsen Twins was headed back to our TV screens.

Then in January 2014 some of the cast reunited on GMA to premiere a new commercial they were starring in which further fueled the rumors.

Well now almost two years after we reported it, it has now been confirmed that the show has officially been picked up for a 2016 return and will debut on Netflix. According to ET:

John Stamos revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that Netflix has officially ordered 13 episodes of the Full House revival series, which will kick off with a one-hour special reuniting the Tanner family. “Literally five minutes ago they called and they sealed the deal,” Stamos said on the ABC late-night program.

Debuting in 2016, the new incarnation of Full House — titled Fuller House — will center on the recently-widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure), now a veterinarian and expecting her third child. To help care for her two young sons, 12-year-old J.D. and 7-year-old Max, her younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and their former neighbor/single Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) move in to her San Francisco home to help.

“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.

“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.

Discussions with other original members of the Full House cast, such as Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin, Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen and Dave Coulier, are ongoing. Stamos will reprise his role as Uncle Jesse and will also serve as a producer.

As far as whether the Olsen Twins will officially be returning or not its up in the air. FOX News reports that the girls revealed today (April 28) that they had no idea the show was being rebooted but they plan to get in touch with the appropriate parties to get on board.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen claimed they were never approached about the “Fuller House” project.

“We just found out about it today. I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening,” Mary-Kate told Women’s Wear Daily. “I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos].”

Ashley added, “I’m going to call [former costar Bob Saget] and get his perspective.”

“I call bulls–t,” Stamos tweeted, with a link to a story quoting the Olsen twins’ comments about the upcoming project.

Either way, we’re excited! Will you be watching ‘Fuller House” when it debuts in 2016!?
