'Full House' is reportedly set to return to our screens nearly two decades after its season eight finale aired.
Full House, the hit ABC sitcom which ran from 1987 to 1995, may return to our screens. A revival has long been discussed but it may just be around the corner with one entertainment website claiming Warner Bros. TV is considering re-envisaging Full House. Many members of the original cast are also rumoured to be reprising their roles.
John Stamos starred in Full House.
The series, which starred such actors as John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier, centred on a widower raising his three children in San Francisco with help from his family and friends. A number of the original cast and crew are reportedly involved, according to TV Guide, including creator Jeff Franklin who is writing the new series.
Stamos has a stake in the show and is reportedly leading the way with Saget and Coulier also keen to reprise their roles. Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are also rumoured to be on board for a new series. The cast have remained close and most recently reunited at Coulier's wedding, uploading a series of photographs on to Instagram. They've obviously remained close despite it being nearly twenty years since the show wrapped.
Full House was cancelled in 1995 after eight seasons because the network decided the production was becoming too expensive. However, similar recent revivals, such as the re-envisioned Girl Meets World, have proved to be hugely successful. The popularity of Full House also remains high as repeats on Nick at Nite have attracted large audiences.
