John Stamos, who played Jesse Katsopolis on the popular ABC family comedy of the late 1980s and early 1990s, confirmed rumors of the show's reboot Monday on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, telling the host Netflix had ordered 13 episodes of the new comedy. He said the series would kick off with a one-hour special.
Later in the evening, the streaming service put out its own announcement, saying Fuller House, as the new series will be called, will premiere in 2016. The comedy will star Full House veterans Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, with Stamos set to produce and guest star.
