"Full House" revival headed to Netflix

"Have mercy!"

A "Full House" revival is most certainly in the works -- and it's headed to Netflix.

Reports about a reboot have been circulating for a while, but now it's official. The streaming network has ordered 13 episodes of "Fuller House," a multi-camera comedy set to star Candace Cameron-Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler).

John Stamos is on board to co-produce the series and will also guest star in it, reviving his Jesse Katsopolis role.

As for the rest of the cast, it remains to be seen. According to Netflix, discussions are ongoing with original "Full House" stars Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin.

In a joint statement, executive producers Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin said, "The continued support of 'Full House' fans of all ages for the last 28 years has been astounding. It is an honor and a thrill to catch up with these beloved characters and explore their lives today. The love you saw on the show was real. The cast has remained a loving family off screen all these years. We are as excited as our fans to finally bring 'Full House' back to life."

The new series will center on Bure's character, D.J. Tanner, a widowed and pregnant veterinarian. Sweetin's Stephanie character, meanwhile, is now a musician. In the reboot, both Stephanie and Kimmy help D.J. raise her two sons and soon-to-arrive baby at the familiar house where they grew up.

Some of the cast members and producers took to Twitter with the "Fuller House" news:

And Stamos talked about it during his appearance Monday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

"It starts sort of as a reunion and spins off into like a spinoff...It's a labor of love and we've been literally trying for so many years to do it right," he said.

He also spoke about the other cast members appearing on the show, saying, "We're going to try to get everybody." As for Saget getting involved? "He better be!" Stamos says.

The new show is expected to debut in 2016 -- 21 years after the original series went off the air. "Full House" aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995.
