You read it correctly: Netflix has taken on the task of hosting a sequel to the ABC sitcom legend, Full House. Beginning with its air date in 1987, Full House made John Stamos, Bob Saget, and even Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen into household names. Now, a full twenty years after the last episode aired, Netflix will be rolling out the logical sequel, Fuller House.
Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, who played DJ Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, and Kimmy Gibbler, respectively, will be the main focus of the new series. With a concept similar to the original series, Fuller House will feature DJ as a single mother, with Stephanie and Kimmy cast as the other two-thirds of the helping-hand parenting crew. Aside from John Stamos’ occasional guest spots and behind-the-scenes production role, there has been no word about the return of Full House’s adult cast, though it may be forthcoming.
The first season of the show will premiere on Netflix with thirteen episodes, and should arrive on your queue sometime in 2016. In addition, the series will feature the guidance of some familiar faces, as it’s being executively-produced by Full House originals Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin.
While Netflix doesn’t offer Full House to stream just yet, you can rekindle your love of the Tanner crew with a quick stop in Amazon Prime’s Instant Video section.
