Remember the good old days of ABC’s TGIF lineup? It was a time before people watched their shows on their mobile devices. Well, word is out that one of its beloved family shows may be making a comeback. Rumor has it that Full House may make its return as a spinoff series. Series creator Jeff Franklin let the cat out of the bag that he’s planning on a series around the two oldest Tanner girls.
It isn’t a complete surprise that Franklin would want to cash in on Full House‘s 90s success. Before the show was cancelled in 1995 it was a hit for its huge demographic. Of course now the series won’t have the draw of the Olsen twins, who have all but left the business to be fashionistas, but it could still be an interesting show.
Franklin revealed to the Newport Gazette about the idea for the Full House sequel series:
“Last month I was asked by ABC and [Warner Bros.] to write a new show for the Full House characters. Everyone I’ve spoken with were very open to the idea [of returning].”
The sequel series of Full House is said to be featured around D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and their life as adults. We’re sure by now the two sisters have a bunch of kids, and a full house of their own if they’re keeping the format of an extended family living under the same roof.
Although it’s highly unlikely that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will be reprising their role as Michelle, the youngest Tanner daughter, the Full House sequel series may still come with its own fan favorites. According to Franklin, Uncle Jesse, Danny, Joey, and Rebecca are likely to return in some shape, or form.
It would make sense that the cast would be game for a Full House reunion. Last year another TGIF sitcom, Boy Meets World, drummed up a massive fan reaction from their spinoff series Girl Meets World, which will be coming to Disney, to the excitement of many of their fans. The fact that people are still nostalgic and are hungry for family sitcoms says a thing or two about Full House‘s chances of being greenlit.
