Is a “Full House” Revival in the Works?
Can you believe that it's been 20 years since "Full House" went off the air? I know, when I read that it made me feel old too. But there's awesome news if you were a big fan of the show. "TV Guide" is reporting that a revival is in the works.
Not only is a revival supposedly in the works, but TV guide reports that a bunch of the original cast members are on board. John Stamos who played Uncle Jesse is reportedly "leading the charge," which makes sense because he has an ownership stake in the show.
Supposedly, Candace Cameron Bure who played D.J., Jodie Sweetin who played Stephanie and Andrea Barber who played Kimmy are also on board. Rumor has it that Bob Saget who played Danny and Dave Coulier who played Uncle Joey are, quote, "involved in some way" whatever that means.
That's virtually everyone with the obvious exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who took turns playing Michelle, and of course, the oh-so-beautiful Lori Loughlin who played Rebecca.
Reports say that the show's original creator is writing the new version, and a former executive producer is also back and involved with the show. So exciting right? But we don't know how far along this revival is. It sounds like the plan is to pull the show together to pitch it to networks, but so far there's no word on who might be interested. I'd watch, would you? I think it could be a success and here's why-because repeats of the original episodes have been drawing around 1.5 million viewers on Nick at Nite. That's really good and what's more is that those numbers have actually grown from last year.
Nobody from "Full House" is commenting, but John Stamos has dropped hints about a potential revival several times over the past five years.
