John Stamos has been tapped as the lead in Big Shot, a new Disney+ original series written and executive produced by David E. Kelley and Dean Lorey and produced by ABC Studios, a part of Disney Television Studios. Brad Garrett, star of the ABC/20th TV comedy series Single Parents, who pitched the original idea to Kelley, is an executive producer on the one-hour dramedy, as is frequent Kelley collaborator Bill D’Elia, who will direct the first episode.

The 10-episode series follows a temperamental college basketball coach (Stamos) who gets fired from his job and must take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school.

“John is absolutely perfect for this role, and we are thrilled that he’ll bring his incredible talent and heart to this project,” said Agnes Chu, SVP Content at Disney+. “Disney has long been known for our aspirational sports stories, and we are so proud to be working with David and Dean on a relatable series that both inspires and entertains. It’s a great fit for Disney+.”

This marks the highest-profile scripted series order to date from Disney+ to sibling ABC Studios.

Two-time Emmy nominee Stamos is currently in the Disney family, playing Chef Louis in the upcoming Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live!, which airs November 5 on ABC. He also co-stars on the hit Netflix drama You, which recently was renewed for a second season.

Full House alum Stamos recently executive produced sequel series Fuller House for Netflix, on which he also reprised his Full House character in a recurring role. His TV series credits also include ER, Necessary Roughness, Galavant, Entourage, Two and a Half Men, Law & Order: SVU, Scream Queens and Grandfathered, which ABC Studios co-produced. Stamos is repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, ICM Partners and attorney Bill Sobel.

Kelley, Lorey and D’Alia previously worked together on Kelley’s CBS comedy series The Crazy Ones, starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar, on which all three were executive producers. Additionally, Lorey served as executive producer on the Fox comedy series ‘Till Death, which starred Garrett.


Multiple Emmy winner Kelley most recently wrote and executive produced the HBO Emmy-winning series Big Little Lies. He also is behind Goliath on Amazon, Mr. Mercedes on Audience and the upcoming The Undoing on HBO. His long list of credits includes Ally McBeal, Boston Legal, Chicago Hope, L.A. Law, The Practice and Picket Fences among many others.

Lorey’s credits also include My Wife and Kids, Arrested Development, Those Who Can’t, Powerless and iZombie.

Garrett won three Emmys for his role on Everybody Loves Raymond. He also was nominated for an Emmy for his portrayal of The Great One in the telefilm Gleason.

Director-producer D’Elia’s collaborations with Kelley also include Chicago Hope, The Practice, Boston Legal and Ally McBeal. His director/executive producer credits also include ABC/ABC Studios How to Get Away With Murder.

John Stamos Confirmed His ‘YOU’ Season 2 Return, So There Might Be More Therapy In Joe’s Future

Fans who have been consuming any YOU Season 2 teases possible (where is this premiere date?), listen up, because one important cast member confirmed his appearance in the sophomore season. John Stamos is returning to YOU for its second season, the actor told Entertainment Tonight on Sunday, June 23, and it sounds like he’s already filming.

When Stamos was asked about the tattoos on his arm, the Fuller House star confirmed his return to the hit Netflix series. “This is from… I’m on the show, YOU, on Netflix and I play the psychiatrist,” Stamos explained. “In the season before, I went to jail, so these are the jailhouse tattoos.” The fact that Stamos was donning the tattoos Dr. Nicky would have acquired while behind bars, coupled with the fact that the suspenseful drama is currently shooting Season 2, can only mean one thing: Stamos is heading back to the therapist’s couch (or at least encouraging Penn Badgley’s Joe to do so) for another few episodes.

For fans of the series, it makes sense that Stamos and his controversial character would come back. Dr. Nicky was the therapist for both Guinevere Beck and Joe Goldberg, so things got a little complicated when Joe discovered his therapist’s affair with Beck. (Talk about a patient-doctor conflict of interest, am I right?)


On top of Joe’s Season 1 finale murder, he also framed Dr. Nicky for the crime and the murders of Peach Salinger and Benji. So while Dr. Nicky would naturally return to answer for Joe’s scheming, it’s unclear in what capacity his character will make himself known. Will he still be locked away for the false charges lobbied against him? Or will justice somehow find its way to Joe, who will be residing on the West Coast with a new object of his affection in Season 2.

It’s hard to try and predict anything to come in this twisty show’s second season. In addition to frequent departures from the source material of YOU in its book series, Dr. Nicky isn’t known as an ultra-reliable character. In January,Stamos spoke to Newsweek about his commitment to Dr. Nicky’s eccentricities, which includes smoking pot during sessions and developing romantic entanglements to patients. But he opened up about why diving into the role, which is quite a departure from clean-cut Uncle Jesse on Fuller House, was something he feels is prescient to pop culture.

“I think Dr. Nicky falls into what I feel is really in our culture right now and that’s not having any consequence,” Stamos told the magazine. “Everybody from politicians to people in show business, they think they can do whatever they want and they don’t have to pay the price. That’s not right. There’s consequences to people’s actions, and it doesn’t seem like anybody cares about that in this show.”

Dr. Nicky certainly brings more delicious drama to YOU — so Stamos’ confirmation that he’ll be returning to the hit series is welcome information. Fans will have to begin developing their own theories about what will go down with him and Joe next.

  • John Stamos took to Instagram to reflect on his time being a part of the Full House Netflix reboot series Fuller House.
  • John and the rest of the Fuller House cast and crew supposedly wrapped up filming this weekend.
  • The fifth and final season of Fuller House is set to be released in December.

The end of the Fuller House franchise is here, and John Stamos is really emotional about it.

On his Instagram page this weekend, John declared that the cast has finished the last taping of the Netflix Full House spinoff series, which first launched on the streaming service in February 2016. Alongside a series of photos, the 56-year-old actor penned touching words about the fifth and final season of Fuller House.

“When every single network and streamer said no to a Full House re-boot, (and I mean ALL of them) @netflix said yes! And they were kind enough to let us play for five seasons! That’s a lot of seasons for a Netflix show now a days, but not nearly enough for us,” he wrote.

John continued to say that he is “grateful” to his fellow co-stars for “keeping the legacy alive and adding so much love to it.” He also thanked both new and old fans of Full House and Fuller House for continuing to support the family-friendly franchise.

He concluded: “Decency is at an all time low, and discord at an all time high — thank God for family television like Fuller House! It’s been a laugh and a tear – I am grateful to the fans FOREVER! Love and mercy, John.”

The heartfelt post prompted lots of emotional responses from his fans and co-stars, including Bob Saget who wrote “Well said brother” and Andrea Barber’s comment, “All the love.”

Despite Lori Loughlin’s ongoing legal disputes in the college admissions scandal, John’s post included six pictures with his former on-screen wife. In May, he also posted a photo of the Fuller House crew that included Lori, even though she is unlikely to return to the series.

In an interview with GQ in August, John admitted that it was tough for him to hear about the scandal, in which Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying bribes to get their daughters into the University of Southern California. Lori and Mossimo are expected to go on trial next year.

Despite the ongoing Lori drama, other Fuller House cast members are, like John, focusing on the series coming to an end. Notably, Candace Cameron Bure has been sharing lots of heartfelt Instagrams about wrapping up. Before filming the series finale, she said she was having a “hard couple of days” coming to terms with the end.

“I’ve still been in tears all morning — no makeup, crying, got zit cream all over my face, it’s been a hard couple days,” the Hallmark Christmas movie star told her followers.”We are currently filming the fifth and final season of Fuller House. There will be no season 6, this is it.”

The final season of Fuller House is set to be released on the streaming service sometime in December.

Perhaps there will be more Fuller House after the fifth and final season wraps? Producer John Stamos, who starred as Uncle Jesse on Full House and reprises the role in the show’s spin-off Fuller House, provided some hope to fans in an interview with ET, saying he’s looking at a possible series prequel. “I’m interested in what happened before Full House,” Stamos told ET’s Nancy O’Dell, in reply to whether a follow-up series could be in the works. The Full House spinoff was renewed for a fifth and final season early this year.

“There’s a lot of energy still with that show,” Stamos said, “And there’s too much happiness that show has brought to a lot of people, so it’s not going to go down easy, I’m not going to let it,” he added. Stamos confirmed Season 5 will consist of 18 episodes, split nine and nine.

Stamos also spoke about Lori Loughlin, a situation he described as “difficult.”

“I haven’t been on the show yet and it hasn’t come up, so I’m going to talk to some people about it this week and see what’s going on,” he said. “I’m just going to wait a little longer before I talk about it. It’s a difficult situation for everyone involved. I don’t mean just on our side.”

Loughlin, the actor known around the world as Aunt Becky, did not return for the fifth season of Fuller House following her indictment in the elite college admissions fraud scheme. Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying “bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” according to the 200-page indictment. They have both pleaded not guilty.

Have mercy!

It’s time to say goodbye to the Tanner, Fuller, Gibbler, Gladstone, and Katsopolis families as “Fuller House” takes its final bow.

The Netflix reboot of the iconic 90s series, “Full House,” wrapped up filming on its fifth and final season.

As the cast completed the final taping, they took to social media to pay tribute to their co-stars, thank the fans for their longtime devotion, and say goodbye… again.

John Stamos honored his TV family with a handful of pictures, many of which included the Aunt Becky to his Uncle Jesse, Lori Loughlin, who is currently embroiled in a messy college admissions scandal.

“The end of an era … again,” Stamos wrote. “Last night was final taping of @FullerHouse. When every single network and streamer said no to a Full House re-boot, (and I mean ALL of them) @netflix said yes! And they were kind enough to let us play for five seasons!”

And while he admits the cast would have loved to keep the show going, he kept it positive as he pointed out that five seasons is a lot by the streaming service’s standards.

“Regardless, we are grateful. I am especially grateful to the cast and crew for keeping the legacy alive and adding so much love to it. Whether you are new to the Full/Fuller House universe or you’ve been with us since the beginning, I can’t thank you enough for keeping the franchise alive, the characters alive, but most importantly, the love alive between all of us that shines out to all of you,” he added.

Stamos also pointed out the importance of family television “like Fuller House” in the current TV landscape.

Fans were pleased with Stamos’ inclusion of Loughlin, who played his on-screen wife since the show’s inception in 1987.

Loughlin’s legal troubles made headlines this year and forced Netflix to drop her from appearing on the show’s final season.

In an interview with PEOPLE Now, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) said Loughlin’s presence was missed.

“It just felt like there was a hole in the whole season but also in that final episode. She should’ve been there, and I’m sorry that she wasn’t,” she said.

Loughlin pleaded not guilty to paying a consultant to get her daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli, whom she shares with husband, Mossimo Giannulli, into college.

The daughters were accepted as crew recruits despite never having rowed before.

Several co-stars echoed Stamos’ heartfelt post with Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) simply adding, “Well said brother.”

Jodie Sweetin, who brought Stephanie Tanner to life, shared similar sentiments writing, “I know this will never happen again… this special magic that is Full and Fuller House. The family we created will last the rest of our lives. So, while I may not see them every day like I have been, I know this family is never far from my heart.”

Meanwhile, Candace Cameron Bure (DJ Tanner) and her “She-Wolf” pack (Sweetin and Barber’s characters) performed some ’90s karaoke during the official sitcom wrap party on Saturday.

Barber shared a video of the three singing New Kids On The Block’s “(You Got It) The Right Stuff.”

Bure also took to Instagram to write “Is there any other way to wrap up the series?!” alongside a clip of them performing the iconic “Fuller House” theme song.

The final season is expected to drop on Netflix later this year.

The 18-episode season will be split into two parts, with the second half coming in 2020.

As they completed the final taping of their Netflix series, John Stamos took to Instagram to honor his Fuller House co-stars, including Lori Loughlin.

“The end of an era .. .again,” Stamos wrote. “Last night was final taping of @FullerHouse. When every single network and streamer said no to a Full House re-boot, (and I mean ALL of them) @netflix said yes! And they were kind enough to let us play for five seasons!”

Stamos went on to add that a five-season run is particularly long on Netflix, though it’s “not nearly enough for us.”

“Regardless, we are grateful. I am especially grateful to the cast and crew for keeping the legacy alive and adding so much love to it,” Stamos wrote. “Whether you are new to the Full/Fuller House universe or you’ve been with us since the beginning, I can’t thank you enough for keeping the franchise alive, the characters alive, but most importantly, the love alive between all of us that shines out to all of you.”

The statement came along with a series of photos of the Fuller House cast, doing everything from mugging for the camera backstage to enjoying a family meal together.

He closed out his post by thanking God for “family television like Fuller House.”

“Decency is at an all-time low, and discord at an all-time high,” he wrote. “I am grateful to the fans FOREVER! Love and mercy, John.”

Several of Stamos’s co-stars chimed in, commenting on the Instagram post.

“Well said brother,” co-star Bob Saget chimed in. His statement was followed by Andrea Barber, who starred as Kimmy Gibbler on the series, who wrote “all the love,” followed by a heart emoji.

Several of the photos included longtime co-star Lori Loughlin, who is currently embroiled in the Operation Varsity Blues scandal. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying a college admissions consultant named Rick Singer $500,000 in order to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli, into USC by having them designated as crew recruits, even though neither girl ever participated in the sport.

Though Loughlin has pleaded not guilty to the charges against her, she is reportedly feeling “discouraged” and “concerned” as she sees other parents in the case receive jail time, People reported.

Despite her troubles, several fans were thrilled to see Loughlin included in the photos.

“Glad to see Aunt Becky in these pics! End of a great era!!!” one commenter wrote.

“THANK YOU FOR POSTING PICS W/LORI!” another fan posted. “ need to learn to be more loving and forgiving!”

“You are so sweet for posting all these photos with Lori! You are an amazing friend!” another commenter wrote.

The fifth and final season is expected to drop on Netflix later this year. Composed of 18 episodes, it will reportedly debut in two parts, the second of which will arrive in 2020.

Stamos has some exciting plans set for the future. Just last month, it was announced he’s been tapped to headline a 10-episode Disney+ dramedy from David E. Kelley titled Big Shot. He’ll star as a temperamental college basketball coach who gets fired from his job and must take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school, reported.

John Stamos shared a sweet throwback photo to Instagram in honor of his Full House co-star Jodie Sweetin‘s birthday, and he asked fans for a special favor in the caption of the image. He also admitted to posting his sentiments to his former castmate one day late.

John posted a photo from one of the earlier seasons of the show, which was a staple of ABC’s TGIF (Thank God It’s Funny) lineup of shows in the 1990s, which also included the popular family entertainment series Family Matters, Perfect Strangers, and Just the Ten of Us.

In the image, John is seen alongside Jodie, who played his niece Stephanie Tanner, the daughter of brother-in-law Danny Tanner. He is wearing a dark-colored suit jacket and a light tailored shirt in the photo, where he is seen covering Jodie’s mouth with his hand. It is likely that in the scene, the character of Jesse was attempting to stop Stephanie, known as a blabbermouth, from telling one of his secrets.

John’s famous coif is blown-dry to perfection, high atop his head and away from his face.

Jodie is seen wearing a pink sweatshirt in the throwback image, with her long blond hair pulled back in a half-ponytail.

In the comments section of the pic, the actress thanked John for the birthday wishes, commenting that she loved him, too, and calling him “Uncle J” as a term of endearment.

In the caption, John asked fans to come up with their own guesses as to what was happening in the photo, with hilarious results.

“She’s saying ‘how rude’ because you’re a day late,” joked one fan of the show, referencing the catchphrase used by the character of Stephanie Tanner.

“When you’re about to rat out your handsome uncle,” said a second fan of what could potentially be happening in the image, per John’s instructions.

“Mr. Bear wouldn’t forget such an important day!” said a third fan, speaking as the character of Stephanie, who told her beloved stuffed animal her secrets throughout the earlier seasons of the series.

Full House continues to be beloved by fans, many of whom also wanted to share their own wishes for the happiest of birthdays towards Jodie. The show continues to run in syndication and is available to stream on Netflix.

Many of the series’ co-stars — which included original cast members Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Lori Loughlin, Mary Kate Olsen, and Ashley Olsen — continue to maintain friendships, almost 33 years since the show first premiered on ABC.
