Rumors are going wild that Full House might be returning to TV! John Stamos is apparently the one at the head of the possible revival.
This wouldn’t be the only show that has been revived. ABC/Disney revived “Boy meets World” with a spin off, “Girl Meets World”.
Here’s the report from Variety.
While nothing is set in stone, there’s been talks at Warner Bros. Television about bringing back the sitcom, and some of its original cast, for a revival nearly 20 years after the long-running ABC show had its finale. Cast member John Stamos is reportedly at the head of the idea, along with original series creator Jeff Franklin and executive producer Bob Boyett.
It’s little wonder why Warner Bros. would want to bring back “Full House.” Nick at Nite reports that its primetime repeats of the show average 1.5 million viewers, pulling in fans that are too young to even remember (or weren’t even born during) the show’s original run from 1987 to 1995.
“Full House” was a frontrunner on ABC’s TGIF lineup, and it would only be the most recent show from the Friday night ’90s staple to make a comeback. “Boy Meets World,” which built up a cult following that lasted well past the sitcom’s end in 2000, was recently revived for a spinoff. Original cast members Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel came back for the Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World”. It brought in strong ratings for the channel, which may have spurred conversations for “Full House.”
It wouldn’t be the first time the cast has reunited for TV. Male leads Stamos, Dave Coulier and Bob Saget came together for a yogurt commercial that aired during the Super Bowl, and Stamos and Saget appeared together for a Funny or Die skit.
