John Stamos Announces ‘Fuller House’
Netflix have done it again! Popular ’90s sitcom Full House will return for a thirteen-episode sequel on Netflix in 2016.
Series guest-star and general funny guy John Stamos delighted audiences on Jimmy Kimmel Live with the news during his Monday night appearance on the show. Stamos will both produce the show and reprise his role.
The new series will be titled ‘Fuller House.’
The original series ran for eight seasons on ABC from 1987 to 1995 and starred Bob Saget as a newly widowed father who recruits his brother-in-law (Stamos) and best friend (Joey Gladstone) to raise his three daughters (played by Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin and Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen). Stamos announced that negotiations with the leading stars, including Saget, were ongoing.
The new series will reportedly focus on on Candace Cameron’s character, who has been recently widowed and is expecting a baby.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel, Stamos said, “It’s a labour of love. We’ve been literally trying for so many years to do it right, and I think we’ve got it perfect.”
