I think every child of the 80’s watched the TV Sitcom Full House at one time or another. Some every single episode. Now it looks like there may be a Full House Revival in the works. Yes you read that right, not a reunion special an actual revival of the show. Check out the latest on this below and share your thoughts after the JUMP!
You can just go home now, pack it all in and call it a day, because this is going to be the absolute best news you hear all day. No, it will be the best news you’ll hear all week.
A Full House revival is reportedly in the works! And this won’t be just any reboot, since much of the original cast might return in some capacity. Told you this was just the absolute best news!
Why the return trip to one of the greatest families in TV history? According to TV Guide, the sitcom, which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995, is still pulling in some major ratings through repeats on Nick at Nite, Warner Bros. TV is interested revisiting the series in a new light.
NEWS: Is a Full House reunion actually happening?
So who from the cast is attached to the potential revival?
Uncle Jesse is spearheading the idea, since John Stamos has an ownership stake in the show. The original Full House executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are both “actively involved,” with Franklin set to pen the new version. Other castmembers on board: Candace Cameron Bure, she played oldest daughter D.J. Tanner; Jodie Sweetin aka Stephanie Tanner; and naturally where D.J. goes so does best friend Kimmy, Andrea Barber.
Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) and Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) are also involved…but what about baby Michelle? Conspicously absent from the list of castmembers attached to the revival are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who took turns playing the youngest Tanner sibling on the sitcom. Where is Michelle?!

Also absent from the list of returning names is Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky), who recently told E! News that she didn’t think a Full House reboot or movie reunion would be a good idea. “I don’t think that there are any plans for a movie,” Loughlin told Marc Malkin. “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.”
Fellow TGIF series Boy Meets World got a reboot of its own with Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World and it’s doing well.
Would you watch a Full House revival if the original cast returned?
