Warner Bros. TV is considering rebooting popular 80s/90s sitcom Full House with members of the original cast, TV Guide reports.
According to reports, Full House star John Stamos (Uncle Jessie) is the series’ strongest supporter, which makes perfect since since he has an ownership stake in the show and would see to earn the most from a reboot. In addition to Stamos, series creator Jeff Franklin and original executive producer Bob Boyett are both actively involved in the series attempted reprisal, with Franklin set to write the newest version of the series.
Original cast members Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibler), Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner) and Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) are all on board to reprise their roles in the reboot. Dave Coulier (Joey) and Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) are also attached to the project.
Full House enjoyed nearly a decade on air, running for eight seasons from 1987 to 1995 as part of ABC’s family skewed “TFIG” lineup, which includes the recently rebooted Boy Meets World. Full House remains a steady performer in syndication on Nickelodeon’s Nick at Nite line-up, with nightly episodes averaging 1.5 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating among adults ages 18-49.
ABC pulled the plug on Full House back in 1995, as the sitcom’s production cost became too expensive. Despite the cast’s best efforts (members of the cast and crew all offered to take pay cuts to keep the show on air), ABC was set on canceling the series.
Full House continues to build upon its fan base, with new generations becoming familiar with the popular series.
