Fuller House is an upcoming American sitcom and sequel series to the 1987–95 sitcom Full House, set to debut as a Netflix original series. The series was created by Jeff Franklin, and is produced by Jeff Franklin Productions and Miller-Boyett Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television.
Many of the original series cast members reprise their roles on Fuller House; some as regular characters, while others appear throughout the series. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who alternated in the role of Michelle Tanner on Full House, were the only cast members not reprising their role in the series. Netflix has ordered an initial 13 episodes, set to premiere on February 26, 2016.
Like the original series, the show is set in San Francisco. The focus is on the recently widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure), who is now a veterinarian and mother of three sons. She enlists the help of her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and her best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber)—who is now a mother to a teenage girl named Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas)—to move in and help her raise her boys after her husband, Tommy, died.

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. Original executive producer Robert L. Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are said to be actively involved.
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, Andrea Barber, and Jodie Sweetin reprising their roles. A representative for Netflix said that the report is "just a rumor". The report stated that Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are "being eyed" to make cameo appearances in the series. Jeff Franklin was said to be the showrunner and executive producer, along with original executive producers Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett. In response to the report, Bure tweeted, "While you all ponder over whether the Fuller House show is true or is an April Fools joke, check out [link to her upcoming TV movie]", and Stamos tweeted, "Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see."
On April 20, John Stamos appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, confirming the spin-off series had been green-lit. The 13-episode season is scheduled to premiere in 2016 on Netflix. In a parallel to the original series, Fuller House focuses on D.J., who is a recently widowed mother of two boys (and pregnant with a third), with her sister Stephanie, and best friend Kimmy moving in to help raise the boys. The series starts off with a special episode featuring a Tanner family reunion. The next day, Netflix confirmed the series was in development. Filming of the series began in July 2015 and lasted until November 2015. In December 2015, the series' release date was revealed as February 26, 2016.
Although not in the main cast, John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis) confirmed that he will guest star from time to time and will have a role as a producer. The announcement of the series left questions about whether Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (Michelle Tanner) would be involved. A day after the announcement, Mary-Kate mentioned that she and her sister had "just found out about it" and that they intended to contact the show's creators to "see what's happening". Ashley said that she planned to call Bob Saget, to "get his perspective". The sisters chose not to return for the series in May 2015. In July 2015, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said that it was still possible for the Olsen twins to return as Michelle if they wished, though they ultimately did not. Following this, the writers revealed that Michelle would be absent from the series due to the character being very busy with launching a fashion career in New York City.
In May 2015, Lori Loughlin confirmed that she would be reprising her role as Becky Katsopolis and she tweeted a photo from the set two months later confirming that Jesse and Becky were still married. Bob Saget and Dave Coulier have been confirmed to be returning. In June 2015, Netflix was in the process of casting Danny's new wife Teri and Kimmy's ex-husband, Fernando, with Eva LaRue cast as Teri a month later.
Also in July 2015, Scott Weinger confirmed that he would be reprising the role of Steve Hale, D.J.'s ex-boyfriend, in the series, and Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit also confirmed that they would appear as Nicky and Alex Katsopolis. In August 2015, Bure announced that Michael Campion, Elias Harger, and Soni Bringas were cast as Jackson Fuller, Max Fuller and Ramona Gibbler, respectively. In October 2015, it was revealed that Michael Sun Lee would portray the grown-up version of Nathan Nishiguchi's character Harry Takayama, while Juan Pablo Di Pace was cast in the recurring role of Fernando.
