After months of speculation, John Stamos made it official on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Monday night: "Full House" is returning. The sequel to the popular sitcom, which was a staple of television from 1987 to 1995, will be called "Fuller House" and will center on daughter D.J. Tanner (played by Candace Cameron-Bure), her kids, her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber). Stamos, a.k.a. Uncle Jesse, will produce and guest star on the Netflix series, scheduled for release in 2016. Discussions with some other former cast members — Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin and Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen — are underway.  Getting the Olsen twins would be a huge — and unlikely — coup. The pair, who shared the role of little Michelle Tanner, are the successful fashion designers behind the Row and Elizabeth & James.  [E!]
