Those Neflix/ "Full House" rumors are actually true. The streaming service ordered a 13-episode revival of the show, which will be called "Fuller House." John Stamos, who will produce and guest-star, made the announcement on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Monday night.

"Fuller House" will be a multi-camera sitcom featuring original cast members Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. According to Netflix, appearances from Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin are up in the air.

"As big fans of the original 'Full House,' we are thrilled to be able to introduce 'Fuller House'’s new narrative to existing fans worldwide, who grew up on the original, as well as a new generation of global viewers that have grown up with the Tanners in syndication,” Cindy Holland, Netflix’s vice president of original content, said in a statement.

"Fuller House," like "Full House" will be set in San Francisco, and will follow D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Bure) as she navigates life as a pregnant, and recently widowed, mother. Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) is now an aspiring musician and Kimmy Gibler (Barber) is a single mom with a teenage daughter, Ramona. They move into D.J.'s house to help take care of her two sons, 12-year-old J.D. -- not a joke -- and 7-year-old Max.

"It's a labor of love," Stamos told Kimmel. "We've been literally trying for so many years to do it right and I think we finally got it perfect." Watch Stamos' announcement below:
