Two decades after we last said goodbye to Full House, they’re all coming back. Well, maybe not the Olsen twins. But everybody else.
John Stamos announced the done deal on Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, confirmed by Netflix.
A one-hour special will reunite the cast, 20 years after Danny, Jesse, Joey and the gang of kids signed off from the 193-episode, eight-season run on ABC (1987-1995). Thirteen new episodes then will follow D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) and her three kids in the house, along with sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) and friends — with appearances by Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and more.
Grown-up D.J. will be a widowed vet, with Stephanie now the musician and Kimmy a single mom, all deciding to move into a home together. The multicam from Warner Horizon Television, Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions will be overseen by original series creator Jeff Franklin, plus executive producers Robert L. Boyett and Thomas L. Miller.
“The continued support of Full House fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding,” Franklin, Boyett and Miller said in a joint statement. “It is an honor and a thrill to catch up with these beloved characters and explore their lives today. 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.”
