Netflix made it official on Tuesday: it’s reviving the long-dormant sitcom Full House, which had an eight-season network run on ABC from 1987 to 1995.
Titled Fuller House, the multi-camera comedy will debut a 13-episode season exclusively across all of the streaming service’s territories in 2016.
Created by original Full House creator Jeff Franklin, Fuller House will star original series cast members Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. Full House star John Stamos will produce and reprise his original role of Uncle Jesse as a guest star in the new show.
Netflix is also in discussions with Full House stars Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin regarding guest appearances.
In Fuller House, D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure) is pregnant, recently-widowed and living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend and fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two young boys and her soon-to-arrive baby.
Fuller House is from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Franklin are executive producers.
