“Full House” Television Series Being Revived?

john-stamosFull House was an American sitcom created by Jeff Franklin and aired on ABC from September 1987 to May 1995. The show revolved around Danny Tanner, who after his wife died, asked for help in raising his three daughters from friend Joey Gladstone and brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis.

During its initial running, which covered eight seasons and included 192 episodes, adults and children alike fell in love with the show and related to many situations portrayed. Since going off the air, Full House has been available via rerun but just this past August, an announcement was made regarding possible plans to reunite the majority of the original cast for a show reboot.

According to people close to the situation, development is already in early states. Of course, nothing has been confirmed as yet but apparently, serious discussions have been taking place with Warner Bros. Apparently, talks are underway about bringing this all-time television show back to life, which would pick up 20 years where it left off.

John Stamos, who played the character, Joey Gladstone, along with the original creator of the show, Jeff Franklin and executive producer, Bob Boyett, are reportedly behind the efforts in getting Full House back on air.

In looking at reports generated by “Nick at Nite”, Full House remains an extremely popular show, with an average rerun viewing audience of 1.5 million. Even people too young to remember the original show are among those watching faithfully. If Full House does make a comeback, it would join a long list of other early sitcoms to include, ”Boy Meets World” and another project being discussed, a remake of “The Odd Couple”.

While guest appearing on a segment of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live”, Stamos provided viewers with a hint by saying, “We’re sort of working on a twist on a squeal”. Again, no one is sure what that really means, but millions of fans are hoping it means a revival of Full House. Other stars that may or may not return to the show include Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin, Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, Andrea Barber, Lori Loughlin, and Scott Weinger.
