In August 2014, reports circulated that Warner Bros. Television was considering a series reboot. John Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the show, headed up the attempt to get the series back into production.
In April 2015, it was reported that Netflix was close to closing a deal to produce a 13-episode sequel series tentatively titled Fuller House with Candace Cameron-Bure and Andrea Barber reprising their roles. The report stated that Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are "being eyed" to make cameo appearances in the series. Jeff Franklin is said to be the showrunner and executive producer, along with original executive producers Thomas L. Miller and Bob Boyett.
On April 20, John Stamos appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, confirming the spin-off series had been green-lighted. It is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2016 on Netflix, which ordered 13 episodes. The series will focus on D.J., a veterinarian and recently widowed mother of two boys (and pregnant with a third); her sister Stephanie, who is looking to become a musician like her uncle Jesse; and best friend Kimmy, who is mother to a teenage girl. The series will start off with a special episode featuring a Tanner family reunion.
On April 21, Netflix confirmed John Stamos' statements on Jimmy Kimmel Live via a statement to CNN, which read, "As big fans of the original Full House, we are thrilled to be able to introduce Fuller House's new narrative to existing fans worldwide, who grew up on the original, as well as a new generation of global viewers that have grown up with the Tanners in syndication."
The Stamos reveal left questions about whether the Olsen twins would be involved. On May 22, it was reported that the Olsens will not be reprising the role of Michelle.
On May 28, Lori Loughlin confirmed that she has signed on for the series. Bob Saget and Dave Coulier have been confirmed to be returning; John Stamos will guest star as well and serve as a producer.
On June 11, 2015, it was announced that Netflix is in the process of casting Danny's new wife Teri and Kimmy's ex-husband, Fernando. Teri is described as "an attractive, vivacious, and youthful 40 year old African American woman who has an appetite for Danny and isn't afraid to shower him with affection", while Fernando is said to be "inappropriately Passionate -- He is relentless in his attempts to reunite with Kimmy and maintains a close relationship with their daughter, Ramona".
In July 2015, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said that it was still possible for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to return as Michelle. Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit also confirmed that they would be making appearances as Nicky and Alex Katsopolis.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen considered doing a phone call from New York for Fuller House but decided against it. John Stamos and Jeff Franklin contacted Elizabeth Olsen to play the role of Michelle Tanner but her agent turned them down.
It was announced on Christmas Eve 2016 that there will be a season 3 - only 15 days after the premiere of season 2. Season 3 will begin filming in March 2017, and the original house may appear.
Part 1 of season 3 will premiere on Netflix on the 30th anniversary of Full House - September 22nd, 2017.
- It was 20 years since Full House has ended.
- The Olsen twins won't reprise their roles as Michelle Tanner. Executive producer Robert L. Boyett said in a statement; "Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of Fuller House, I know how much Full House has meant to them and they are still very much considered family, it t has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards Fuller House."
- Ashley Olsen's middle name happens to be Fuller, which is her mother's maiden name. Ashley Olsen was a star of the original series Full House.
- D.J. was originally meant to be pregnant at the start of the show.
