The hit sitcom, Full House, might be making a comeback to television sets in the near future, reports TV Guide.
This news comes just weeks after the Boy Meets World spinoff, Girl Meets World, made its debut on the Disney Channel.
The Warner Brothers TV-owned sitcom aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995 and reruns currently can be seen on Nick at Nite.
John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) on board and helping in leading the charge in updating the series. He’s on board as are Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are signed on. Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are signed on but it’s not yet known to what extent that they will be involved. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are also on board with the update and Franklin is writing a script for the series.
The big question mark will be Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. One has retired from acting and the other hasn’t appeared on a series in a few years. Would one of them be open to joining a series revival? It’s hard to say right now.
Over the years, the cast have said that they would like the show to return. Earlier this year, Stamos, Coulier and Saget appeared in a Super Bowl commercial. Stamos performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon as Jesse and the Rippers. Later, he appeared in a bit with Saget and Coulier as their characters.
“We’re sort of working on a twist on a sequel,” Stamos told host Andy Cohen on on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live this past winter. “But we don’t know if it’s going to happen yet or not.”
The Nick at Nite reruns draw decent ratings for a series that is coming up on 20 years since it’s last original episode aired. ABC canceled the series in 1995 as it was getting too expensive to produce.
A revival was pitched last year that would have required a pickup of 90 episodes if the first ten episodes had hit a certain rating. Nothing happened but many Full House fans would love to see what the Tanner family is doing twenty years later.
