Stake owner John Stamos reportedly is championing the new TV series which is developed at Warner Bros. TV.
A "Full House" reunion is happening after all. A new report emerges that Warner Bros. TV is mulling plans to revive the hit ABC sitcom with some of the original cast scheduled to return.
Per TV Guide, John Stamos will be spearheading the project, having an ownership stake in the show. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are all on board, with the latter in charge of writing the new version. The main cast Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber are all attached while Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are involved in some way.
Over the years, Stamos has been hinting at reunion during his public appearances. "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," he said during an appearance at "Watch What Happens Live" last winter. Some of the cast members later briefly reunited on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and at Coulier's wedding.
"Full House" repeats are still streaming on Nick at Nite and rakes in high ratings for the network. The series, which originally ran from 1987 to 1995, continued to be a Top 25 show during its run.
