It's been more than 20 years since the cast of Full House were together in the Tanner family kitchen set. And it's as if they never left.
"We never stopped loving each other," John Stamos tells PEOPLE on the set of the upcoming Netflix spinoff Fuller House. "That magic you saw? It's still there because it never stopped from the day that we ended the show."

The original Full House aired from 1987–95, but has remained on the air in syndication ever since. The new spin-off follows D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) raising her three sons with the help of her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber). But in the first episode (and sprinkled throughout the season), Danny (Bob Saget), Joey (Dave Coulier), Uncle Jesse (Stamos) and Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin) all come back to play.

"It's like moving out of your house when you're a kid and then you move back in. It shouldn't be this much fun."
