Well, well, Bob Saget certainly ain’t game about breaking John Stamos’ heart all over again because he has confirmed that he’ll be returning to play Danny Tanner in the “Full House” reboot, “Fuller House”!
In case you missed it, John Stamos aka the popular TV series’ “Uncle Jesse” had his heart broken recently when executive producer Robert L. Boyett confirmed that Mary-Kate and Asley Olsen, who collectively played Michelle Tanner on the original series, will not be returning for the reboot. He took to Twitter to say that he is “heartbroken” by the news, but elaborated in subsequent message, “I understand they’re in a different place and I wish them the best,” he wrote, before promising that fans will dig the new offering anyway.”
But on Thursday (28th May), he announced what would be the biggest “Fuller House” news yet: Bob Saget is officially joining the reboot.
The above was retweeted by Bob Saget, who playfully added:
On top of that, there will be plenty of other returning faces!
In addition to John Stamos and Bob Saget, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber will be on “Fuller House”, while Dave Coulier will appear on at least one episode.
From what we know, 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.
“Fuller House” is from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television. 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.
The series is expected to premiere in 2016.
