John Stamos is doing everything he can to get 'Full House' back on the big-screen.
That's right, it looks as though family comedy 'Full House' is heading back to TV with a revived version being developed by original star John Stamos, executive producer Bob Boyett and series creator Jeff Franklin. The trio are leading the charge for a new show though it is thought Bob Saget, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are also on-board.
The cast had been stepping up their efforts for a sequel recently. Appearing on Watch What Happens Live, Stamos said he was working "on a twist on a sequel". The three leading men reunited on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in January, and Stamos also got the Full House band, Uncle Jesse & the Rippers, back together for a medley of hits.
Series revivals are becoming somewhat fashionable nowadays. Boy Meets World was re-launched this year with Girl Meets Girl with some of the original cast returning in some capacity. Warner Bros are likely to be more open to a revival of Full House given the series - which ran from 1987 to 1995 - remains a big ratings hit on Nick at Nite, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Set in San Francisco, Full House chronicles widowed father Danny Tanner who, after the death of his wife, enlists his best buddy Joey and brother in law Jesse to help raise his three daughters D.J, Stephanie and Michelle. It was a regular Top 25 show during its original run but ABC cancelled it in 1995 after it became too expensive and audience tastes changed. Staffers reportedly offered to cut their pay in order to keep the show going, but to no avail.
