WATCH: John Stamos Confirms ‘Full House’ Reunion and Spinoff Are Happening

The rumors are true. Full House is returning to TV in a 13-epsiode Netflix spinoff.

John Stamos announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday (Apr. 20, 2015) that he and his cast mates are reuniting.

Stamos explains:

We’ve been working on this for many, many years.

The new series, which will be called Fuller House, will debut on Netflix in 2016. According to Stamos, the cast will reunite for a one-hour special, which will be followed by 12 spinoff episodes.

According to Netflix, “In ’Fuller House,’ the adventures that began in 1987 on ’Full House’ continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) pregnant and recently widowed, living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys — the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and her soon-to-arrive baby.”

Both Cameron-Bure and Barber shared photos on Instagram.

And they even tweeted each other.

Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, will produce and guest star, while discussion with Full House stars Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (Michelle Tanner), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), and Lori Loughlin (Rebecca Katsopolis) are ongoing.

The 51-year-old says he’s hopeful that the other members will return.

“If we can’t get the Olsen twins, we’re gonna dress you up,” he told Kimmel.
