Former 90’s heartthrob and star of the show John Stamos, broke the news last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Fuller House executive producers Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin released the following joint statement regarding the show.
The continued support of ‘Full House’ fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding. It is an honor and a thrill to catch up with these beloved characters and explore their lives today.

Fuller House Synopsis,
The revival series will focus on Candace Cameron Bure’s character, D.J. Tanner, who is a recently widowed and pregnant veterinarian. Her younger sister and aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and her childhood best friend, Kimmy Gibbler, (Andrea Barber), along with Gibbler’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, move in to help D.J. raise her two sons — rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and soon-to-arrive baby.
We are certainly living in a never say never era of show business. Many actors spend the duration of their careers trying to break type-casting by distancing themselves from their sit-com personas. The internet has breed a culture starving to satiate their nostalgic cravings. As long as the market is hot and the money is there to entice stars back to their old roles, we will see programming like Fuller House occuring with more frequency.
