Netflix's 'Full House' Reboot Features Original Cast in a Drastically Unexpected Storyline

Are you excited by the idea of reliving your childhood, thanks to a Full House reboot? Well, John Stamos just confirmed that Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of a show they plan on calling Fuller House. And just wait until you hear what they have in store for us (a lot more Kimmy Gibbler than you probably expect).

While the original TV smash put the dads in the spotlight, focusing on their life lessons, jobs, and even their dates (boy, that Uncle Jesse was a hot cad), the new version will revolve around Candace Cameron-Bure's D.J. Tanner, her little sister Stephanie (played by Jodie Sweetin) and her BFF, the one-and only Kimmy G. (Andrea Barber).

It seems the trio are about to experience the oh-so-poignant circle of life because, get this: D.J. is now a pregnant veterinarian who is recently widowed. She has two sons—an unruly 12-year-old named J.D. and an overly anxious 7-year-old named Max. In order to, I guess, offset the insane cost of living in San Francisco, D.J. moves in with Stephanie, who is now a struggling musician (cough, Uncle Jesse) and single mom Kimmy, who has a teen daughter.

While it's kind of cool that the ladies will take over on Fuller House, this may not be what every fan of the show expected. The good news is that Stamos, who is producing the sitcom, will guest star and the show is in talks with Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin, who will, we hope, all grace us with their guest appearances at some point. I mean, how can anyone say not to John Stamos?

Scratch that: there is no way on Earth Mary-Kate or Ashley are going to revive their characters. Don't hold your breath. It's. Never. Happening.

Even without Michelle (whom I'm guessing they'll say is now teaching English in Thailand so that her absence around the holidays isn't frowned upon), Fuller House is set to be released in 2016. No word on whether its Netflix connection means we can expect a racier, more modern version of the show, but my guess is that producers will stay faithful to the show's original, innocent plots and lessons.

What are your thoughts on Fuller House? Will you watch it?
