Full House Revival Is Possibly In The Works
The sitcom, which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995, is still pulling in some major ratings with reruns via Nick at Nite, Warner Bros is interested a new take on Full House, with some of the original cast intact.
Spearheading the idea if Uncle Jesse himself (aka John Stamos) — 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.
Absent from the list of cast members attached to the revival are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who took turns playing Michelle. Also is Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky), who recently told E! News that she didn't think a Full House reboot or movie reunion would be a good idea. "I don't think that there are any plans for a movie," Loughlin told Marc Malkin. "If it were a really good script and a great project, but sometimes I think that it's better off to leave those TV shows as they were and not do reunion shows."
