It’s been years in the making, and rumored for almost as long, but, now, we have official confirmation: Full House is back.
John Stamos, still best-known for playing Uncle Jesse during the show’s original early-90s run, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to drop the official word. Which, according to Stamos, he received “literally five minutes” before coming out to chat.
The Stamster credited Netflix for coming in and offering the kind of sweet deal that ensured everything about the spinoff would be “perfect” and do justice to the original show, and complimented the original producers for wanting to do something to add to Full House’s storied legacy, rather than taint it with a throwaway series.
And yes, in case you were wondering: The recently-rumored premise of DJ having three boys and raising them in the original house is real.

Still no word on whether or not the billionaire Olsen twins will participate. But, as Stamos noted, if they can’t get the twins, they’ll just dress Jimmy up to play them. Good times.
It’s clear that Stamos is excited for the reunion, which will kick off with an hour-long special before moving into the regular series. After all, he revisited the character of Uncle Jesse on Jimmy Fallon’s program not so long ago:
What do you, the viewers at home, think? Are you excited for the Fuller House reunion and new series? Nervous that the show might not work in a contemporary setting? Or anxious for its cast and crew to try bigger, better things?
