Full House is back. Kind of.
Netflix is close to ordering Fuller House, a thirteen episode spinoff of Full House starring Candace Cameron Bure as D.J. and Andrea Barber as her BFF Kimmy. Fellow Full House vets John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are being eyed to make guest appearances, with Stamos having a producer role, as well. As for an appearance by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, more than likely they will not appear on the show.
The project is being shepherded by the original show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, who will exec-produce alongside Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett.
Full House ran for eight seasons and ended in 1995. It is joining the TV-revival trend that includes Coach (coming to NBC as early as this fall), The X-Files (returning to Fox next season), Twin Peaks (hopefully on Showtime in 2016) and FH‘s TGIF successor Boy Meets World (currently airing on Disney Channel via Girl Meets World).
