On the questionable date of April 2, we told you that Netflix was thisclose to producing a Full House sequel, questionably titled Fuller House. It sounded fake. It sounded impossible. It could have been a prank that was, how you say, how rude.
But it is no prank, my friends. We are living in a world where we finally at long last will know whatever happened to predictability, the milkman, the paperboy, and evening TV. THEY MOVED TO NETFLIX.
John Stamos, patron saint of hair, beauty and Dannon Oikos, confirmed details last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. There will be an hour-long reunion special that spins off into the tale of DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron-Bure) raising her three sons with the help of Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) and Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin). I hope DJ and her husband are just divorced because if he’s dead, too, I’m starting to think this family might be cursed. The show will feature the original cast (Stamos seemed hopeful about some Olsen appearances, rarer than the mighty Bigfoot) and presumably be good clean family fun for a show just notches away from House of Cards on your queue.
Big Morning Buzz Live weighs in on the news.
