In exciting news for 80s sitcom fans, John Stamos has officially confirmed that Full House will be returning to screens in 2016.
Stamos, who plays Uncle Jesse on the show, revealed the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to screams and cheers of delight.
The show, which will be called Fuller House is set to run as a 13-episode series on Netflix and has already signed on cast favourites Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber as well as John Stamos, who will be producing and acting.
Discussions with past cast members including Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin are reported to be “ongoing”, but have not yet been confirmed.
The new Fuller House will centre around the character of D.J Tanner, her sister, Stephanie Tanner, and childhood best friend, Kimmy Gibbler, who all move into Tanner’s home after she has been recently widowed, in order to help her take care of her two sons – and her soon to arrive baby.
Stamos, speaking to Jimmy Kimmel live on his show, gushed about the series which has just begun pre-production.
“The love you saw on the show was real. The cast has remained a loving family off screen all these years. We are as excited as our fans to finally bring Full House back to life,” he said, “We’ve been literally trying for so many years to do it right, and I think we’ve finally got it perfect.”
“It’s a labour of love.”
