90s kids everywhere went nuts when John Stamos revealed a Full House reboot would be coming to Netflix next year.
Fans of the hit show, which ended in 1995, have been wishing for a reunion for years and last night all their dreams came true.
John, who played Uncle Jess on the show, announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live that a spin-off titled Fuller House was in the works.
“We’ve been literally trying for so many years to do it right and I think we’ve finally got it perfect,” he said.
The 51-year-old, who is an executive producer on the new show, described the plot of the new show as “sort of a reversal.”
In Full House, widower Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) asks his brother-in-law Uncle Jesse and friend Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier) to move into his house to help him raise his three young daughters, D.J., Stephanie and Michelle.
Similarly, in Fuller House a grown up and recently widowed D.J. will need the help of her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy Gibbler to help her raise her three sons.
Candice Cameron-Bure and Jodie Sweetin will be back as D.J. and Stephanie, and Andrea Barber will return to play Kimmy.
The 13-episode season will start with an hour-long reunion show, which the creators are hoping will feature all of the cast from the original series.
Twitter and Facebook have been inundated with thousands upon thousands of overwhelmingly positive posts since the news broke, and ‘Full House’ is still trending.
Do you think revisiting Full House is a good idea?
