Full House Reboot or Sequel Coming to Television in 2015?

Full House

John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) and the rest of the Full House cast are coming back to TV, at least if Warner Brothers Television is successful at reviving the sitcom. Already, several former Full House cast members have expressed an interest in appearing in the reboot, or, as Stamos calls it, a “twist” on the idea of doing a sequel. He first mentioned the idea on Bravo earlier this year, when he, along with former cast members Dave Coulier and Bob Saget, were on the show Watch What Happens Live.

Stamos has partial ownership of Full House, which still gets fairly decent ratings on Nick at Nite with reruns of the family-oriented comedy series. This year, it has averaged 1.5 million viewers per episode, which is a seven percent increase from 2013. He and executive producer Bob Boyett and Full House creator, Jeff Franklin, have a sequel to the popular series planned out and ready to start production. Full House aired on ABC from 1987-1995.

The sequel to the resurgent ABC sitcom Full House will be written by Jeff Franklin. Cast members Andrea Barber (Kimmy), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.)have all agreed to appear in the sequel, as well as Dave Coulier (Joey) and Bob Saget (Danny). The has been no word yet on if the Olsen twins, Mary Kate and Ashley, will also become cast regulars.

These same former cast members of Full House came together recently to attend the wedding of Dave Coulier. They had discussed the possibility of doing a movie or sequel in the past, but nothing had come from it. Possibly, a commercial on the Super Bowl is what led the former cast members to a renewed interest in doing a Full House sequel.

During a Super Bowl commercial for Dannon’s Oikos Greek yogurt, Coulier, Saget and Stamos reunited to promote the delicious food product. Then, Jimmy Fallon invited them to guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in January 2014. Stamos even brought back together all of the members of his fictional band, which he called Uncle Jesse and the Rippers.

If Warner Brothers has its way, a Full House sequel or reboot might be in production relatively soon and premiere as early as 2015. That would be the 20th anniversary of when Full House was cancelled, back in 1995. Among other series that are making comebacks of sort are Veronica Mars and Boy Meets World. The Disney Channel has a hit spinoff of it airing now, Girl Meets World.

If the efforts of John Stamos and Warner Brothers Television are successful, either a Full House sequel or reboot may very well hit the airwaves in 2015. Any revival of the Full House or a sequel to it would already have a built-in audience. The original series has developed a following over the years it has been on television and it is fairly popular still, even among teens who were not yet born when the original series was on ABC. A Full House sequel or reboot would also appeal to older fans of the original series, who have nostalgic memories of watching it with their families.
