Remember that Full House reunion we heard about last summer? Well go grab your favorite Jesse and the Rippers T-shirt and take to the streets, because it looks like it’s really happening. TV Line reports that a 13-episode multi-camera continuation of Full House, appropriately titled Fuller House, is nearing an order—where else?—at Netflix.
The revival is poised to star Candace Cameron Bure as D.J. and Andrea Barber as the one-and-only Kimmy Gibbler, with John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier being eyed to make guest appearances. Stamos is also set to have a producer role on the show as well, which is being spearheaded by Full House creator Jeff Franklin. Franklin will executive produce alongside Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett, who are reprising their roles from the original series. Jodie Sweetin was mentioned as being onboard in last year’s report on the revival, but she’s not included in today’s update.
This is no doubt exciting news to fans of Full House like myself, and feels like the most logical continuation of the show with D.J. and Kimmy now acting as the focal point as adults. Fuller House marks the latest in a long line of “revivals” of popular TV shows, which now includes Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Coach, Boy Meets World (in the form of the Disney Channel series Girl Meets World), and Arrested Development, which got a fourth season on Netflix.
The move isn’t official yet so we haven’t heard anything from Netflix, but I’d be surprised if the deal fell through. What do you think, folks? Are you enthused about reuniting with the Tanner family? Are you holding out hope for a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen appearance? Will riots be started if we don’t also see the return of The Rippers?
