'Full House' to Get Even 'Fuller' on Netflix

Uncle Jesse is back!

John Stamos announced on "Jimmy Kimmel" last night that "Fuller House," a spinoff of popular late '80s/early '90s TV sitcom "Full House," will be coming to Netflix for 13 episodes.

And let's just get something out of the way: Has Stamos, aka Uncle Jesse, even aged since he was living in the Tanner family attic?

Nevertheless, the new series will start as a reunion, Stamos revealed, and will then shift focus to now-grown D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure). Tanner-Fuller is now a veterinarian and recently widowed, according to TVLine. She will be joined by Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, who are reprising their roles as Stephanie Tanner and Kimmy Gibbler, respectively. The new incarnation will debut in 2016.

"Your friend Bob Saget has to be on it, right?" Kimmel asked, referring to the actor who played "Full House" patriarch Danny Tanner.

"He better be," Stamos retorted.

"Will there be Olsen twins on the show?" Kimmel asked, mentioning the now-28-year-old Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who Michelle Tanner on the show.

"If we can't get the Olsen twins, we're going to dress you up," Stamos joked.

Turns out, they're trying to bring the whole cast back for the initial hour before spinning off to D.J.'s story as a pregnant mom.

As far as story lines for the other characters go, "[D.J.'s] younger sister, aspiring musician Stephanie, and lifelong best friend/fellow single mom Kimmy, along with Kimmy's feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.'s young boys ... and her soon-to-arrive baby," according to TVLine.
