Everywhere you look, it seems people are reminiscing about the ’80s and ’90s sitcom “Full House.” (OK, maybe not everywhere you look, but I wanted to link to the theme song, so sue me.) Stars Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier reunited on one of the last episodes of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” before he took over “The Tonight Show” earlier this year, and Tom Hanks even did a slam poem about the sitcom a while back. And Will Arnett’s new Netflix animated TV series “Bojack Horseman” constantly references a show that’s very much like “Full House,” that even has a cute little girl with a catch phrase similar to the Olsen twins’ “You got it, dude.”
But fans may not have to wax nostalgic about the series for much longer, because TV Guide reports that Warner Bros. TV is developing a revival of “Full House,” and much of the original cast is ready to return. John Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the show, is the main proponent for bringing it back (you don’t say?), while original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are “actively involved,” with Franklin writing the new take. Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) are on board, while Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) and Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey) are also “involved in some way.”
Interestingly, the report says that the studio pitched an updated version of “Full House” last year with the same kind of deal used for the FX series “Anger Management,” which meant that any network that picked it up would have to pick up a full 90 episodes if the initial 10 hit a certain ratings level. We never heard about that development because no one bit on it, but apparently reruns of “Full House” are doing very well in the ratings, and with the success of “Girl Meets World” – Disney Channel’s modern revival of “Boy Meets World” – there’s now an immediate precedent that Stamos and the rest of the cast can point to in order to justify a new version of this series.
