The streaming service announced Tuesday that it has ordered 13 episodes of Fuller House, which will star original cast members Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, with John Stamos, who will serve as a producer, guest-starring. Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are also in discussions to reprise their roles.
Fuller House will follow D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron Bure), a recently widowed pregnant veterinarian raising two boys, 12-year-old J.D. and 7-year-old Max, in San Francisco. (Fear not, Steve fans: His last name is Hale, not Fuller.) D.J.'s sister Stephanie (Sweetin), an aspiring musician; her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Barber); and Kimmy's teenage daughter Ramona decide to move in with D.J. to help her out with being a single mother.
Stamos shared further details about the sequel series on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, including that Netflix will premiere a one-hour reunion special before launching into 12 episodes. "It's a labor of love, and we've been literally trying for so many years to do it right," Stamos told Kimmel. "And I think we've finally got it perfect."
