Full House is back!
John Stamos broke the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday that a new Full House reboot is in the works for Netflix.
“Five minutes ago they called, they sealed the deal, and we’ve been working on this for many, many years… We were trying to do some sort of spin-off. We wanted to give credit to the legacy. We didn’t want to sort of throw it away. So Netflix came around and said let’s do 13 episodes.”

John Stamos said Bob Saget “better be back,” but is unsure if the Olsen twins (Mary-Kate and Ashley) will return. He did tell Jimmy Kimmel that he has a plan if the twins don’t commit.
“If we can’t get the Olsen twins, then we’re going to dress you up.”
According to Just Jared, the Olsen twins are currently in negotiations with Netflix to appear on the Full House sequel.
Entertainment Weekly offered a synopsis of the 13-episode season of the new Full House, which may lead to more, depending on the success of Fuller House.
“In Fuller House, the adventures of the original series continue on with D.J. Tanner-Fuller (hence the show’s title) now pregnant and recently widowed living in San Francisco. DJ’s younger sister and aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and her BFF and fellow single mom Kimmy Gibbler (Barber)—along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona—all move in to help take of DJ’s two boys, the rebellious J.D., 12, and the neurotic Max, 7.”
