'Full House' revival is official, will arrive on Netflix in 2016

Whatever happened to predictability? Well, if you had paid attention to the rumors surrounding Netflix's upcoming roster of shows, you'd have seen this recent news coming from everywhere you look. Yep, that Full House sequel we heard about earlier this month wasn't an April Fool's joke, and yes, it will actually be called Fuller House (No, really). John Stamos AKA Uncle Jesse confirmed the news on Monday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live, revealing that he's also slated to be the show's producer plus occasional guest star.

As for the show's premise, we'll see a bit of a gender flip. This time around, pregnant and widowed DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) will have the help of sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) plus best pal Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) in the rearing of her two sons and yet-to-be-born child. Aside from Stamos, the appearance of other former Full House stars such as Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Dave Coulier is apparently in the works. When you're lost out there and you're all alone, just rest assured that starting some time in 2016, you'll finally be able to see what has happened to the Tanner family over the past 20 or so years.
