Netflix has confirmed a 13-episode order for Fuller House, a continuation of the ABC hit show of the 90s Full House.
D.J. (Candace Cameron-Bure), Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and neighbor Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) have all committed to the show, as well as John Stamos (who played Uncle Jesse), who will also serve as producer of the show.
In the new series, D.J. is a veterinarian who is pregnant and recently widowed. Stephanie is an aspiring musician and she and Kimmy, also a single mother to a teenager Ramona, move in with D.J. to help take care of her two sons.
Stamos appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the new spin-off.
“It’s a labor of love and we’ve been literally trying for so many years and I think we’ve finally got it perfect,” Stamos said.
According to Stamos, they are still working on getting the rest of the cast including Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashely Olsen, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin back for at least the first episode which will be a sort of reunion style.
Cameron-Bure has been out of the spotlight for the most part since her Full House stint until she ended up on Dancing with the Stars. However, her and her brother, actor Kirk Cameron, have brought attention to themselves with their anti-gay comments.
She and her brother are notorious for being outspoken Christian activists.
“I think that it’s – it’s – it’s unnatural,” Kirk said during a speech on the Piers Morgan show in March 2012 about homosexuality. “I think that it’s – it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
