Following the rumours that initially surfaced in October 2014, it has now been confirmed that a 13-episode season of a new multi-camera comedy from Warner Horizon Television, Miller-Boyett Productions, and Jeff Franklin Productions titled, “Fuller House” is happening.
Yes, “Fuller House”. Ring any bells? It’s the sequel to the iconic hit series, “Full House” – one of the greatest and most memorable TV series of yesteryear that we miss.
Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber are set to star in “Fuller House”, with fellow “Full House” star John Stamos set to produce and reprise his original role of Uncle Jesse as a guest star in the new show.
In “Fuller House”, the adventures that began in 1987 on “Full House” continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure) pregnant and recently widowed, living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (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.
In a joint statement, executive producers Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin said:
The continued support of Full House fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding. It is an honor and a thrill to catch up with these beloved characters and explore their lives today. The love you saw on the show was real. The cast has remained a loving family off screen all these years. We are as excited as our fans to finally bring “Full House” back to life.
“Fuller House” is from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin are the executive producers of the series, which was created by Franklin. John Stamos is a producer.
Discussions with “Full House” stars Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin regarding guest appearances in “Fuller House” are ongoing.

Here’s the downside of everything we just said above though – “Fuller House” will premiere exclusively only on Netflix. So unless if we (in Malaysia) get Netflix by 2016, we probably won’t be able to watch it.
