"Alright, I'm going to give you the exclusive."

Stamos said the Netflix run will start with a one-hour reunion and then gradually morph into a more straightforward spinoff in which DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) is now the owner of the famous San Francisco house as she, a recent widow and veterinarian, cares for her two children and expects a third. DJ's younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and former neighbor Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) will be moving in to help her run their hectic lives.
