Netflix has received quite the acclaim over it’s string of original programming. With established hits such as Orange Is The New Black, Daredevil, and Grace and Frankie hitting the streaming service, anticipation for the next big hit is at an all-time high.
And for its next act, Netflix will look to revive a television classic, Full House.
The newest Netflix creation, Fuller House, will include many of the same characters of the original series which was such a prominent fixture on ABC’s TGIF lineup. The cast includes fan favorites such as John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, Candace Cameron, and Jodie Sweeten. However, the best bit of casting news came from John Stamos himself, as he announced one more big name for the series reboot.
“Last but not least best piece of casting news yet,” Stamos wrote on Twitter. “The great @bobsaget will be joining our show on @netflix-this completes the perfect reunion.”
Yes, the man himself, Bob Saget, will be joining the show. It’s a huge addition to the already-established cast as Saget’s character, Danny Tanner, was the one who held the family together through all of its struggles and downfalls.
Although, even with Saget in the cast it’s still not the perfect reunion that Stamos referred to.
Mark Kate and Ashley Olsen have chosen not to participate in the new project. This leaves show creators with a tough dilemma on their hands, what do you do with Michelle Tanner? It’s possible they could bring in another actress to play the role, but that just isn’t the same as having the original Olsen twins play the part.
“We would’ve loved it [if they had returned],” Loughlin said on Good Morning America. “But I understand.”
Netflix hopes the series will bring back many childhood memories for its fans, similar to what Girl Meets World has done for fans of Boy Meets World.
A 13-episode order has been placed for Fuller House, so there will be plenty of time to catch up with the Tanner family when the series debuts in 2016.
