The 90s hit sitcom "Full House" is coming back to your television sets if the new reports are to be believed. The fans of the show will once again be transported to the era of naughty antics of the kids and their uncle Jesse. The family sitcom, which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995, is reportedly garenering good ratings with its repeat telecast on various channels.
Now Warner Bros. TV is considering reviving the show keeping some of its original cast too. The mission to revive "Full House" is spearheaded by actor John Stamos, who also played the character of Uncle Jesse on the show, TV Guide reports. Stamos also has an ownership stake in the show, reveals the website.
The new version of the show is reportedly written by Jeff Franklin who is working in tandem with show's original producer Bob Boyett. Original cast that is expected to be seen on the new version of sitcom includes actors Candace Cameron Bure, who played D.J.; Jodie Sweetin who was Stephanie and Andrea Barber who had played the part of Kimmy. Other actors who are also involved in the new show are Bob Saget and Dave Coulier who played the characters of Dave and Joey respectively in "Full House."
Many websites are speculating that the twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen might also be involved in the new series as they have chosen acting as their careers. The original cast of the show has remained in touch even after the show ended in 1995. Stamos, Saget and Coulier also reunited for a 2014 Super Bowl commercial.
The news about the revival of the show has been doing rounds since quite a long time. "We're sort of working on a twist on a sequel. But we don't know if it's going to happen yet or not," revealed Stamos on Andy Cohen's talk show "Watch What Happens Live."
"Full House" was one of the most popular shows in the 90s in its original run and stayed among the Top 25 shows on ABC. The channel reportedly cancelled its revival owing to high costs and change in taste of the viewers.
