Full House may be headed back to television.
The popular 1990s sitcom is reportedly getting a television revival that will include most of the original cast. There had been rumors for months of a Full House reunion show, and while the majority of them were hoaxes is appears this one is legitimate.
The report noted:
Warner Bros. TV is mulling a new take on Full House, with some of the original cast intact…Leading the charge is John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) — who has an ownership stake in the show, which gives him good reason to champion the new series. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin (who’s writing the new version) are actively involved. Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are on board, while Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are also involved in some way. (Via)
There is no word on whether the Olsen twins would be part of the Full House revival, or if Uncle Jesse’s wife Beck (Lori Loughlin) is on board.
The biggest push for the Full House reunion is reportedly coming from John Stamos, who has already been involved in a couple of mini-reunions this year. Back in January he joined Bob Saget and Dave Coulier for an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and later they appeared together in a Super Bowl ad.
Just a few weeks ago most of the original Full House gang reunited again for Coulier’s wedding.
The reunion show comes after many fans got their hopes up for a show that never happened. Late last year rumors circulated that there would be a new version of Full House featuring the adult Tanner girls, but it was later identified as a hoax.
There is still no indication what form the Full House revival could take or how the plot would be crafted.
