John Stamos, who starred as suave funnyman Uncle Jesse on the ’90s family comedy, announced the big news on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night.
“We’ve been working on this for many, many years,” he told the late-night host.
The new 13-episode show will premiere on Netflix next year, and Stamos will produce and guest-star.

Tanner (Bure) and her three kids, along with her sister Stephanie (played by Jodie Sweetin) and neighbor Kimmy (Barber).
