We’re in the era of the revivals and the remakes, it seems, and beloved ’80s/’90s favorite Full House is the latest show coming back to life.
The 13-episode spinoff, to air on Netflix, is entitled Fuller House. According to Time, the plot centers around recently widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) raising her two sons, J.D. and Max, while pregnant with her third child. Her younger sister, Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) move into D.J.’s San Francisco home to help her out. Kimmy is a single mom herself, and brings her teenage daughter Ramona along as well.
“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,” Netflix VP of original content, Cindy Holland, said.
John Stamos announced the show’s revival during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. He’ll produce the project, and guest star as well.
Plans for former cast members Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Lori Loughlin to appear are still in progress.
