Netflix Close to Ordering 13-Episode Revival of 90s Favorite Sitcom ‘Full House’

By April 2, 2015

Whatever happened to predictability? The milkman, the paperboy, evening TV? You miss your old familiar friends, waiting just around the bend. Well, now some of them will be coming back, just as we heard last summer.

TV Line reports Netflix is on the cusp of ordering a 13-episode multi-camera sitcom continuance of the 90s hit “Full House.” However, rather than bringing everyone from the original series back, this follow-up, titled “Fuller House,” would follow D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).

While the rest of the original “Full House” cast won’t be series regulars, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos would make guest appearances as Danny, Uncle Joey and Uncle Jesse, with the latter also acting as a producer. Don’t forget that they all reunited on “The Tonight Show” over a year ago.

In addition, the original show’s creator Jeff Franklin will executive produce the series along with Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett, both executive producers of the 90s favorite as well.

The original series ran for eight seasons on ABC before coming to an end in 1995, and it’s been a favorite of children of the 90s for a long time. Considering all the nostalgia that’s been going around lately, it’s not surprising to hear that this is happening. In fact, I even proposed that this might be next after “Coach” was slated to come back to television last week.

Let’s not forget that “The X-Files” is coming back and “Twin Peaks” will also return as a limited series as well. “Fuller House” is just another in a line of revivals coming together lately. Could we see even more programs from ABC’s classic TGIF line-up make a comeback? Surely the casts of “Step by Step” and “Family Matters” aren’t up to much anymore. And we already have “Girl Meets World” on The Disney Channel. Who knows what will get revived next?
