The anchor of ABC's beloved TGIF lineup was just picked up for a 13-episode reboot from Netflix, and no, this is not a false alarm. OG castmember John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) confirmed the news on Monday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Stamos will produce the series, titled "Fuller House," and reprise his swoon-worthy role as Uncle Jesse on the reboot, which focuses on the younger generation of Tanners: DJ (Candace Cameron-Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and DJ's best friend Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber).
As for the other Tanners, discussions are ongoing with Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (OMG!) to reprise their roles as Danny, Joey, Becky and Michelle. So prepare your emotions accordingly, dudes.
No, but, you should really get your emotions in check because "Fuller House" is going to wreck them. When we catch up with DJ Fuller, she's pregnant with her third child... and recently widowed. (How rude of him to die on her like that!) So Stephanie and Kimmy, and Kimmy's teen daughter Ramona, move in to help support DJ and her two boys -- the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. (creative!) and neurotic 7-year-old Max.
Needless to say, we have a lot of very important questions regarding this sequel series.
Which Olsen will return as Michelle?Giphy
It has to be Ashley, right? Unless "Fuller House" pays homage to its predecessor by pulling the same switcheroo Mary-Kate and Ashley pulled for years as the youngest Tanner, Michelle. It would be kind of amazing to see Ashley in one scene and MK in another -- you know, now that we can actually tell the apart.
Who was DJ's husband?Warner Bros. Television
Who is this Mr. Fuller and what brought about his untimely demise? Oh, and why the heck did he let DJ name their son JD? Not cool, dead dude.
What happened to Steve?!
The good news: Steve Weinger is still alive. The bad news: DJ and Steve did not live happily ever after. Aw, nuts! What happened? Did he take a bad trip on a magic carpet and lose his effing mind? Or did they just grow apart? (Sob.) Hopefully, Steve is still living in San Francisco, and there's a chance he'll show up later in the season and sweep DJ off her feet (again) because we refuse to believe their love is dead.
Is Kimmy still, well, Kimmy?Warner Bros. Television
Given that Kimmy now has a teenage daughter, we're going to assume she's gotten life at least partially figured out. We can only hope she's slightly less irritatingly ditzy this time around. (Oh, please. Oh, please. Oh, please.)
Where are Alex and Nicky?Warner Bros. Television
Alex and Nicky Katsopolis will most likely be recent college graduates in "Fuller House," which means guest appearances from Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit isn't entirely out of the question. As for what they're up to, Alex is probably a young aspiring entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, and Nicky is a musician following in his father's footsteps who probably says things like "not the hair!" to his nightly conquests.
Will Stephanie reunite with Girl Talk?
OMG please say yes. We know Stephanie is an aspiring musician these days, so a reunion gig could totally happen.
Does Stephanie still dance?
Before music, Stephanie's first love was dance. So if we ask nicely for an awesome dancing montage, maybe Netflix will be like, "You got it, dude!" (Don't crush our dreams.)
Will the show keep the saxophone?
Watching "Full House" now can be a bit of a culture shock. It's such an '80s show, complete with emotional saxophone music. Netflix will definitely modernize the feel of the original, but we hope it keeps some of its charm. TBH, we wouldn't mind trading the saxophone for a Comet Jr.
Will the theme song be the same?
Is there still a face everywhere you look? And more importantly, will we ever find out what happened to the milkman? These are the things that keep us up at night.
