The 90’s are getting a 21st century reboot.

To the excitement of fans everywhere the show “Full House” is getting a spin off that will air on Netflix. It's being called “Fuller House” and will feature oldest daughter DJ trying to raise her children with the help of her best friend and younger sister. So far most of the original cast has signed up for the show and they are posting pictures of the progress on Instagram.

The 13 episode show will premiere next year and is predicted to continue the recent success of Netflix. In recent years the company has switched its focus to original content and it seems to be paying off. Last year Netflix earned 31 Emmy nominations, more than double the amount of the previous year. This year it received 34.

And Netflix isn't the only streaming service being recognized. Amazon received twelve Emmy nominations including one for outstanding comedy series and best actor in a lead role. It looks like streaming sites are giving network television a run for its money; and more people are watching.
