Cut It Out! The Cast of Full House Is Seriously Considering a Reboot Series
Yes, this according to TV Guide, the cast of TGIF’s Full House are ready to make another run with it. Now, before you complain about reboots, go read Rebecca Pahle’s defense of them, and then consider this:
Now Warner Bros. TV is mulling a new take on Full House, with some of the original cast intact.
Leading the charge is John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) — who has an ownership stake in the show, which gives him good reason to champion the new series. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin (who’s writing the new version) are actively involved. Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are on board, while Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are also involved in some way.
TV Guide also notes the cast has stayed pretty close throughout the years, even reuniting for a Super Bowl commercial recently (not to mention Jesse and the Rippers performing on Fallon). TV Guide also writes:
Appearing on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live this past winter, Stamos hinted that a Full House revisit was being pondered: “We’re sort of working on a twist on a sequel,” he told host Andy Cohen. “But we don’t know if it’s going to happen yet or not.”
I haven’t been watching Girl Meets World, the sequel series to another ABC staple Boy Meets World, but it feels like the same basic idea. What do you think? Should the extended family live in a giant mansion together or will this have to be some Wisteria Lane situation?
