Fuller House Gets Official 13-Episode Order For Netflix — Who Will Star? (VIDEO)
It’s official, the Tanners (or some of them, rather) are officially coming back to the small screen! TVLine reports that Netflix officially placed a 13-episode order for Fuller House, the highly-talked about Full House spin-off.
John Stamos announced the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live that Candace Cameron-Bure is set to star as Donna Jo “D.J.” Tanner while her on-screen BFF Kimmy Gibbler will be reprised by Candace’s off-screen bestie, Andrea Barber. Also heading back to the San Franciscan household is Jodie Sweetin aka D.J.’s younger sis, Stephanie Tanner, and John Stamos, who will guest-star as Uncle Jesse as well as serve as producer.
Of course, the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not twin actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will make an appearance on the continuation story as the youngest Tanner sister, Michelle. Though we’d love to see these girls (or at least one) return to the small screen, nothing is certain, as discussions for the twins — as well as Full House stars Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin — to return are still on going.
So what can we expect from Fuller House? John dished that a one-hour reunion special will kick off the continuation story, which is due to debut in 2016. According to TVLine, Fuller House will also take on a similar storyline to the original ‘80s show: D.J. is a recently-widowed veterinarian living in San Francisco with two boys — 12-year-old rebel J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and a third kiddo on the way. To help D.J. with her two boys and her impending baby, aspiring musician Stephanie, single mom Kimmy, and Kimmy’s teenaged daughter, Ramona, all move in with D.J.
Three women and three kids all under one roof? No problem!
Prepare for the hilarity that will ensue.
