Netflix Brings Back “Full House”

What ever happened to predictability, the milkman, the paperboy, and the evening TV?  Well according to Uncle Jessie (AKA John Stamos) it’s coming back to Netflix.  On Monday, Stamos announced on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that there would be a new “Full House” spin-off featuring some of the old cast members.

The new show entitled “Fuller House,” will feature familiar faces like Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin (DJ and Stephanie Tanner), and Andrea Barber, more likely known as the beloved Kimmy Gibbler.

Stamos went on to say that he will be producing the show as well as making appearances.  Other characters that might come back include Danny and Michelle Tanner, Joey, and Rebecca.

The Netflix season will kick off with a one-hour special and will be followed with thirteen episodes.  The story, somewhat similar to the original, takes place when DJ becomes widowed, and while raising three little boys, find assistance in her best friend Kimmy, along with sister Stephanie.

And the returning cast is just as excited as the fans.  Many of the cast members have kept in touch since the last episode in 1995 and have been anticipating a reunion for years.  In fact Jodie Sweetin told Entertainment Weekly, “To be able to do a series with people I love — who are like family — to play a character I loved so much […] I’m really, incredibly grateful.”  Twitter has also blown up as fans reminisce into their childhood and the topic has even trended.

The show plans on being aired in 2016, as they want to make sure that everything is perfect.  Penni Fuller, a fan since the beginning said, “I can’t wait to see the original cast again, especially John Stamos.” (And no she is not related to DJ).
