If you’ve been waiting for confirmation of a Full House spin-off then, you got it dude! There have been rumors swirling about a Full House reboot since August 2014, but Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Stamos confirmed that the show is definitely happening.
The spin-off will be called Fuller House and is set to be released in 2016. Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of the show that will reportedly follow D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy. The original cast members who are not set to star in the show are in talks for guest-starring roles.
For all of us '90s sitcom lovers, this is a dream come true, because D.J. Tanner was definitely the ultimate '90s teen fashion queen—and we are sure that her fashion game has only gotten stronger over the years. In honor of the revival, we decided to take a look at the past and (supposed) future of the beloved characters.
Bob Saget as Danny Tanner
Then: The quirky but lovable dad of D.J., Stephanie and Michelle raised his daughters following the death of his wife, Pam, and he gave the best father-daughter talks of all time. When he wasn’t trying to embarrass his daughters into the next decade or clean the entire house to squeaky-clean perfection, he worked as a newscaster on Wake Up San Francisco.
Now: As of now, Danny is not slated to be a major part of the show but we are sure that he will show up at some point because where there is a house in need of cleaning, there is a Danny Tanner.
Dave Coulier as Uncle Joey
Then: Uncle Joey was the goofball uncle that we all wish we had to teach us how to do every cartoon character voice known to man. He was commonly seen as a man child because of his immature nature, but when it came down to it Uncle Joey could give pep talks with the best of them. And let’s not forget he was half of the J&J Creative Services duo.
Now: In the show’s absence, Uncle Joey has probably become a famous comedian but surely he could take some time out of his busy tour schedule to come and visit the girls. Who knows, maybe he will have learned some new cartoon voices... because as much as we love Popeye and Bullwinkle, they were getting kind of old!
John Stamos as Uncle Jesse
Then: Uncle Jesse had the best hair on the show hands down and was the resident Elvis Presley impersonator. He was pretty much the coolest rock-and-roll uncle who lived in the pinkest bunny rabbit room the world has ever seen. He also became a pretty spectacular diaper changer as well. He came a long way from his early baby care days.
Now: We hope that Uncle Jesse will make some guest appearances because you have not really lived until you have heard him say “have mercy.”
Lori Louglin as Aunt Becky
Then: Aunt Becky was more of the cool, older cousin that everyone goes to for worldly advice because she’s been there, done that, and won’t judge you when you tell her how you really feel. It should also be noted that there was never really an episode where she didn’t look absolutely flawless.
Now: Obviously, Aunt Becky does not age because two decades later, she literally looks the exact same (if not better!). For this reason, it is crucial that she makes a few trips by the house and dish some of her beauty secrets because the girls (and all of us) need to know how she's done it!
Candace Cameron-Bure as D.J. Tanner
Then: Let’s face it, we all secretly wanted to be D.J. She had the absolute best hairstyles and had '90s fashion down to an art. On top of that she was the best big sister around and even though she and Stephanie went through a few rough patches they were there for each other every step of the way. We also really need to know about D.J.’s college years, TBH.
Now: D.J. is recently widowed and the mother of a 12-year-old, 7-year-old, and pregnant with her third son. Stephanie and Kimmy are returning to help her out. Judging from her big sister skills, we are sure that Deej is a wonderful mom.
Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner
Then: Stephanie was the ultimate sass queen and there was nothing anyone could do about it. From dealing with middle child invisibility to transitioning into a teenager before our eyes, Stephanie experienced the most personal growth on the show. We will never forget the classic Stephanie Tanner line, “how rude,” because it was definitely the catchphrase of our childhood.
Now: Deciding to follow in Uncle Jesse’s footsteps, Stephanie has decided to become a musician. And also like Uncle Jesse, Stephanie returns to help a family member in need raise her kids.
Andrea Barber as Kimmy Gibbler
Then: Even though Kimmy Gibbler was probably one of the most annoying neighbors of all time, we probably still would've let her in our house. Also D.J. and Kimmy? Friendship goals!
Now: Kimmy returns to her favorite house, but now she actually lives there. She helps her BFF raise her children while also raising her own teenage daughter. We hope that Kimmy’s daughter isn’t anything like her mother (actually, we want her to be exactly like her mother).
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as Michelle Tanner
Then:Michelle Tanner was cooler than any of us could ever have hoped to be. Even before she could talk we knew that Michelle was a pretty big deal just because of the way she knew how to rock her overalls. One does not simply think of Full House without thinking of Michelle’s iconic, and completely adorable, “You got it dude.”
Now: What is Michelle going to be up to? We don’t know. All plot assumptions aside, the more pressing issue here is obviously: which twin is going to play Michelle?
Will you be watching this reboot, collegiettes?
