Uncle Jesse will be in at least two episodes of “Fuller House,” according to John Stamos.
The actor appeared on a panel at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour Wednesday and gave a brief update on his other highly anticipated sitcom project.
“I did the first two episodes, we shot them already,” he said of “Fuller House,” on which he’s also a producer. “We’re doing 13 episodes for Netlifx. I’m so excited to bring it back, doing it at Netflix. ‘Full House’ was really one of the earlier unconventional family shows. It was three straight guys raising three kids, in San Francisco … And now straight into ‘Grandfathered.’”
His new show, on Fox, follows another unconventional family as his character, a bachelor, meets the son (and grandson) he never knew he had.
“Fuller House” is now filming and follows a grown up DJ Tanner (Candice Cameron-Bure), raising three kids of her own.
Stamos also revealed Lifetime’s “Unauthorized Full House Story” got at least one thing about the behind the scenes drama right. In a newly released clip, the fictional Stamos (played by Justin Gaston), tries to get the Olsen twins replaced.
“The Olsen twins cried a lot, so it was hard to get a take, that’s pretty accurate,” he said. “So I said, ‘get rid of ’em.’ They brought in a couple of unattractive redheads, they didn’t work out, and the Olsen twins were back.”
“Fuller House” will be released on Netflix in 2016. “Grandfathered” premieres Tuesday, Sept. 29 on Fox.
