The long wait is coming to an end. What all fans of Full House have been waiting for, is finally going to happen in 2016: Full House gets a sequel.

Netflix has ordered a 13-episode season of 'Fuller House', as the spinoff will be called. It will be a multi-camera comedy and it will premiere exclusively across all Netflix territories in 2016.

This was first confirmed by John Stamos on Jimmy Kimmel Live and later by several other cast members, Full House creator Jeff Franklin and a press release from Netflix.

Fuller House will focus on D.J. Tanner-Fuller, a pregnant veterinarian who recently became a widow after her husband Tommy Fuller died. She already has two sons, J.D. (12) and Max (7) and a third one is on its way. To help her raising the boys, her sister Stephanie Tanner, an aspiring musician, moves in. D.J.'s best friend Kimmy Gibbler and her daughter Ramona also move in with them.

Candace Cameron-Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) are already confirmed to reprise their respective roles. John Stamos, who will produce the show, will make a guest appearance on the first episode. There are negotiations going on with Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Lori Loughlin for more guest appearances.

According to Candace Cameron-Bure, the first episode is slated to begin filming this summer. Tthe plan is to get as much of the original cast together as possible for a one-hour special that serves as a transition of sorts into the new rendition.

She added that, "Fuller House will put a twist on the original series, while upholding the tone and values embedded in the family-friendly sitcom." She added: "We want to protect the image of Full House. We're all going into this with the understanding that we're going to give the fans what the original show gave, which was good family programming that you'll want to watch with your children." She also said that viewers will laugh, cry and learn important lessons by watching the beloved characters face and overcome modern-day scenarios, much like they did during the show's original run from 1987 to 1995.

Fuller House is from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin are the executive producers of the series, which was created by Franklin. John Stamos is a producer.

In a joined Statement, Jeff Franklin, Robert L. Boyett and Thomas L. Miller 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."

Cindy Holland, Vice President of Netflix, is also happy with the new series: "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," said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content for Netflix.
