‘Full House’ Reboot Moving Forward with Original Cast, Because You Definitely Asked for This
Well, we’ve really done it now. We let ‘Girl Meets World‘ set up shop on the Disney Channel, shared faint chuckles at the sight of John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier schilling yogurt, and continually focused on a solitary Olsen sibling. Nevermind you which, as ABC TV classic ‘Full House’ may be moving forward with a rebooted series, original cast intact, and all because we couldn’t just CUT-IT-OUT.
Reports of a revived ‘Full House’ emerged today from TVGuide, who claim that franchise part-owner Stamos has been leading the charge with original series executive producer Bob Boyett, creator Jeff Franklin, and Warner Bros. TV. That’s not all however, as Candace Cameron-Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) are reportedly already on board, while Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) and Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) are also “involved in some way.”
Notably, TVGuide’s report also draws attention to a surge in ‘Full House’ popularity with Nick at Nite reruns, which average 1.5 million viewers this year, and continually rise overall. The original series was canceled in 1995 for increased expense and declining ratings, and because the Olsen twins had amnesia, or something.
Look, we’ve seen the prospect of a ‘Full House’ revival kicked around for a few years now, and even with the series’ former TGIF partner ‘Boy Meets World’ now spinning in its Disney Channel grave, we’re going to take this one with a grain of salt for the moment, no matter how rude. If nothing else, we shall plead to the TV gods to “have mercy,” and they shall whisper unto us, “you got it, dude.”
What do you think? Would you be interested in a ‘Full House’ reboot of sorts?
