New York — John Stamos will produce and appear in a 13-episode reboot of the sitcom Full House for Netflix and said that he hopes as many members of the original cast as possible will return.

Netflix said on Tuesday that it has ordered the sitcom Fuller House, a spinoff where Candace Cameron-Bure stars as a pregnant and recently widowed mother of two. Jodie Sweetin, who played her sister in the original ABC series, and Andrea Barber, who played her friend, move in to help her.

Stamos told Jimmy Kimmel on Monday that he and the producers had been trying for a while to find the best way to revive the sitcom, which originally aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995.

Netflix said it is still discussing possible returns with Bob Saget, who played the widowed father of three girls in the original series, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are in talks to appear in the reboot.

Although the multi-millionaire leaders of the fashion and Dualstar empire haven't acted together since 2004's New York Minute, there's still hope that they could appear on Fuller House.

According to the show's official release, the 28-year-old twins are currently ''in discussions regarding guest appearances'' as Michelle Tanner, the shared role that kick-started their career aged just nine months.

The confirmed cast returning are Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Stephanie Tanner, Kimmie Gibbler and Stamos as Uncle Jessie.

"We're trying to get everyone," Stamos said.

Netflix said Fuller House will debut next year on the streaming television service.
