Full House - Full House Reboot An Internet Hoax

Producers of U.S. sitcom Full House will not be shooting a sequel, despite reports suggesting its stars Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin are returning for a reboot of the popular series.

On Monday (04Nov13), multiple media outlets reported that the executive producer of the family-friendly show, Jeff Franklin, had been in talks with Warner Brothers executives about bringing back the beloved 1990s sitcom, which skyrocketed stars including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and John Stamos to fame.

According to the article, the new series would focus on the three grown-up Tanner girls, the characters played Bure, Sweetin, and the Olsens.

However, the alleged quotes from Franklin were taken from Rhode Island newspaper the Newport Gazette, a publication that has been out of commission since 1799.

The original article was published on entertainment site Screenrant.com as part of its April Fool's Day joke earlier this year (13), and a representative for the site even took to Twitter.com to clear the rumour and wrote, "Someone picked that up as legit (legitimate) news? Last year, a few broadcast sites even picked up the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles April Fools post."

While a Full House reboot may not be in the making, another popular '90s sitcom, Boy Meets World, will be making a return to Tv in a new series called Girl Meets World, in which Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel reprise their roles as childhood sweethearts, now with a young daughter of their own.
