Warner Bros. Television is planning a new take on the classic sitcom Full House, with several of the original cast members set to come back.
The series ran for eight seasons between 1987 to 1995, following a single father (Bob Saget) who raises his daughters (Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen) with the help his late wife's brother Jesse (John Stamos) and best friend Danny (Dave Coulier) who all live under the same roof.
John Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the show, is "leading the charge" for this revival, according to TV Guide. Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, who played family friend Kimmy, are reportedly on board, with Bob Saget and Dave Coulier said to be involved in some way. Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were not mentioned in this report, so it seems they may not be involved at this time.
Full House series creator Jeff Franklin is writing the script, with original executive producer Robert L. Boyett also returning. The cast has remained close over the years, with Bob Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier recently appearing in a Dannon yogurt commercial earlier this year, along with an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where they all dressed as their Full House characters.
Last winter, John Stamos appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, where he revealed that he was working on a sequel to the series.
"We're sort of working on a twist on a sequel. But we don't know if it's going to happen yet or not."
Full House still puts up solid numbers in syndication on Nick at Nite. The show pulls in an average of 1.5 million viewers per episode, up 7% from last year. Another show that aired alongside Full House in ABC's "TGIF" lineup, Boy Meets World, was revived with the spin-off Girl Meets World, following the adult lives of Corey (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel).
We'll keep you posted as soon as more details about a Full House revival are revealed.
