John Stamos, former star of “Full House,” announced via “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that the show will be getting a spin-off in 2016 on Netflix. “Fuller House” will act as a gender reversal of the show with original cast members Candace Cameron-Bure as DJ Tanner, Andrea Barber as Kimmy Gibbler and Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner acting as the matriarchs of the famous house.

Cameron-Bure will play DJ Tanner-Fuller, hence the name “Fuller House,” a widow with a family of her own. Stephanie Tanner’s, now an aspiring musician and fellow single mom Kimmy Gibbler move in to help her care for her family.

Stamos announced that the show will receive 13 episodes starting out with an hour long reunion special. While the four already announced are 100% in the spin-off, there is speculation if other members will be regulars or guest roles on the show. Either way, count us in to be there when “Fuller House” premieres on Netflix.
