Grandfathered, John Stamos


Forget DILFs, we're all about GILFs this fall. And the reason why? John Stamos. Who else?!

Yes, really, we now live in a world where John Stamos is playing a grandfather on TV...and we love living in said world.

Stamos, who turns 52 on Aug. 19, is set to take on the role of a bachelor-turned-new grandfather on his new Fox sitcom Grandfathered, which premieres Sept. 29, and E! News has your exclusive first look at the hot, hot, HOT new poster for the series. 

But get your mind out of the gutter, people: GILF totally stands for Grandfather We'd Like to Friend. 

When we chatted with Stamos, who is also set to reprise the role of Uncle Jesse for Netflix's Full House revival in 2016, and his new onscreen son Josh Peck at the 2015 Television Critics Association summer press tour, they joked about their chemistry off-screen. "We've spent more time together. We text each other," Stamos said. "I don't text him back, but he texts me a lot." Peck quickly added, "It's like many women in my life. I deal with it." 

But in all seriousness, the duo get along ridiculously well, with Stamos gushing, "He's my new favorite guy in the world. He's got such a beautiful heart. He's been so supportive." 


The new series also stars Christina MilianPaget Brewster, Kelly Jenrette and Ravi Patel.

Grandfathered premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 29 on Fox.
