Today Netflix has announced that they will be clearing up an earlier rumor that a Full House reboot would be joining the streaming service.
John Stamos announced on Kimmel that Netflix has ordered a 13 episode first season, that is currently set to launch in 2016.
While many familiar faces are set to return with the series, rumors are that Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin and the Olsen twins are currently still in progress.
Considering the show hasn’t aired in over 20 years (a 1995 abrupt finale took the show off the air) it seems strange that now suddenly marks a good time to relaunch what was arguably a distant memory. It doesn’t necessarily feel like a nostalgic fit for the older crowd, and the younger generations are likely completely unfamiliar with the original.
The new show focuses on the recently widowed D.J., a mother of two boys with a third child on the way. She gets help from her younger sis, Stef, and best friend, single mom Kimmy, who both — you guessed it — move in to help Deej in her time of need.
