Uncle Joey is heading back to “Full House”! Actor Dave Coulier just took to Instagram to confirm that he’ll be reprising his popular sitcom role for the upcoming Netflix reunion series, “Fuller House.” Check out Coulier’s announcement post below, which includes an image of the star alongside director Mark Cendrowski (“The Big Bang Theory”), who will be helming the new show.
Created by original “Full House” creator Jeff Franklin, “Fuller House” hails from Warner Horizon Television, Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions. It will consist of 13 episodes and will premiere exclusively across all Netflix territories in 2016.
Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are set to star in “Fuller House,” with fellow “Full House” star John Stamos set to produce and reprise his original role of Uncle Jesse as a guest star in the new show. Discussions with “Full House” stars Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Lori Loughlin regarding guest appearances in “Fuller House” are ongoing.
In “Fuller House,” the adventures that began in 1987 on “Full House” continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure) pregnant and recently widowed, living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys — the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and her soon-to-arrive baby.
