Montauk is coming to Netflix: The streaming service on Thursday ordered an eight-hour series to premiere next year, titled "Montauk."

Per Netflix's announcement, the series -- set in 1980 -- is about a boy who "vanishes into thin air. As friends, family, and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one very strange little girl."

The series, which will consist of eight hourlong episodes, will be produced by Matt and Ross Duffer, brothers and young filmmakers who got a feature film deal with Warner Bros. after graduating from college in 2011. The result: "Hidden," starring Alexander Skarsgård, about a family in a fallout shelter, which arrives this year.

Separately, trade publications reported Thursday that the former ABC sitcom "Full House" might return on Netflix. Neither the producers, Warner Bros. Television, nor Netflix would confirm the report.

The Hollywood Reporter said original executive producer Robert L. Boyett and series creator Jeff Franklin want to bring back the comedy's former stars Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) to star. Bob Saget (Danny), John Stamos (Jesse) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are being considered for guest spots.
