All new! Candace Cameron Bure sounded off on Netflix's upcoming Full House reboot, Fuller House, on the Today show on Tuesday, May 5, distancing the streaming series from the original family show that inspired it.

The former child star, now 39, appeared on the talk show in promotion of her new Hallmark Channel TV movie Just the Way You Are, but took a moment to discuss the Tanner family. It was announced last month that the actress, who starred as the eldest sister on the '90s sitcom, will star in Fuller House alongside John Stamos, Andrea Barber, and potentially even more stars from the beloved series.

"We're definitely doing Fuller House… It revolves around my character, D.J., who now has three kids but is widowed," Bure explained to Today's Tamron Hall. "She asks her best friend and [her sister] Stephanie to come help her raise her kids."

"It's definitely a fresh take," she continued. "We're not doing the old show, it's not a reunion. It's a spin-off show."

"It's a new show," Bure added. "We're gonna start taping it this summer. So my kids, I hope they'll be at the set every day until they start school."

The Dancing With the Stars alum has three children with hockey player husband Valeri Bure. The couple first welcomed daughter daughter Natasha, now 16, in 1998, going on to introduce sons Lev, now 15, and Maksim, now 13. The teens will get the chance to see their mom in the role that made her famous when Fuller House comes to Netflix in 2016.
