Netflix is reportedly developing a 13-episode Full House spinoff series that will star Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler).
TVLine was the first to break the news, adding that Netflix (known for original series like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black) is “thisclose” to ordering the new series, which is said to be titled Fuller House.
Fellow Full House stars John Stamos, Dave Coulier, and Bob Saget are likely to make guest appearances as Uncle Jesse, Joey Gladstone, and Danny Tanner respectively, with Stamos also serving as one of the show’s producers.
The show is being lead by the original creator of Full House, Jeff Franklin, who will also serve as an executive producer with Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett (both executive producers from the original series).
This is very, very exciting news for fans of the popular 80s/90s series which is still being aired on TV today. The show lasted an astonishing 8 seasons and 192 episodes
But, Fuller House doesn’t exactly role off the tongue. Hopefully the name is still a work-in-progress.
