Have Mercy! Is ‘Full House’ Coming Back To Television?
TV Guide is reporting that a revival of ’80s and ’90s family sitcom ‘Full House’ is in the works, and its being led by non-other than original series co-star John Stamos. Reportedly original executive producer Bob Boyett and series creator Jeff Franklin are on-board with the project and are developing the show’s storyline and scripts.
Led by Stamos, other original cast members reportedly interested in reprising their original roles include Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler). Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) and Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) are also reportedly interested in the project..
Though it does seem unlikely that Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, who launched their careers by doing split duty portraying the youngest Tanner family member Michelle, will return for the revival. The Olsens have long since retired from acting and are focusing on their careers in business and fashion.
Stamos, who has partial ownership of the show’s rights, first hinted last winter that a revival was a possibility. “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.”
‘Full House’ aired from 1987 to 1995 and told the story of Danny Tanner, who struggles to raise three young girls by himself after his wife is killed in a car accident. He enlists the help of his brother-in-law, Jesse (Stamos) and his best friend Joey (Coulier), to raise a family that is anything but traditional.
All I can say, is please....have mercy!
