Full House reboot is in development with many original cast members

Full House Reboot

First a Boy Meets World revival and now Full House reboot? It’s shaping up to be a great year for TGIF fans!

According to TV Guide, John Stamos is leading a campaign to bring the popular sitcom back with new episodes. The project is reportedly supported by original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Frankin, who is writing the new show. Better yet, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are “on board” while Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are “involved in some way.” Warner Bros. TV is reportedly interested.

From the perspective of TV executives, a Full House revival is about as sure of a bet as they can get: Primetime reruns of the show average 1.5 million viewers, which is better than many new episodes of current shows. TV Guide also notes the reruns have a solid fan base among teenagers — who weren’t even alive when Full House‘s run ended in 1995 because it became “too expensive.”

John Stamos has been a particularly big proponent of a reboot throughout the years. Most recently, he told Watch What Happens Live‘s Andy Cohen they were “working on a twist on a sequel.” However, his TV wife Lori Laughlin doesn’t seem to share that opinion.

“I don’t think that there are any plans for a movie,” she told E! News in 2013. “If it were a really good script and a great project, but sometimes I think that it’s better off to leave those TV shows as they were and not do reunion shows.”

Even though they may not all agree on the reboot idea, the cast of Full House has remained close: The three leading men starred in a popular Super Bowl commercial last winter before hosting a bigger reunion at Dave Coulier’s July wedding.
