TV Friends Who Became Real-Life Besties

We learned this morning that the Full House reboot is officially happening. Fuller House, which will air on Netflix, will star D.J. Tanner, a widow, along with sister Stephanie and bestie Kimmy Gibbler. The plot feels remarkably similar to the original, but we don't even care. This show means the triumphant return of television's greatest best friends, D.J. and Kimmy. 

Upon further inspection, though, that friendship never really ended. Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber have remained close over the years. And, lucky for us, they love nothing more than documenting it on Instagram. That got us thinking: Some of our favorite television pairs have ended up the same way, as real-life BFFs. Ahead, 10 of TV's greatest duos who took their friendship off-screen and into real life.
