Full House returning!

Full House returning!
Caffeinated Clint

If Mr Feeney were still commanding the classroom, he’d look over in Corey’s direction and denounce ‘This is all your fault, Mr. Matthews.’

Seems the success of Disney’s belated “Boy Meets World” sequel – the unimaginatively-titled but rather fun “Girl Meet’s World” – has paved the way for other coaxial-cable offerings from the ‘80s and ‘90s to make a comeback.

Next vintage series to get a polished reprise?

“Full House”.

You can blame John Stamos.

Seems the former-king-of-the-mullets has been championing the idea of a reboot for months (which he won’t necessarily star in, but he will produce) with Warner Bros showing equal excitement at the prospect of a Tanner-family return and snapping up the show today.

TV Line says :

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.
The cast has remained tight-knit and some of the actors have let it slip in the past that they’d like to see Full House return. Stamos, Coulier and Saget appeared in a yogurt commercial earlier this year, and also showed up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon dressed as their Full House characters. 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.” In 2009, Stamos also told the press that a Full House movie had been developed.

Interesting that there’s no mention of Michelle (played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) there? Surely Stamos has a couple of million laying around to pay them with to make a 5-minute appearance in the pilot?

“Full House”, cancelled in 1995, has been winning over new generations via repeats on Nick at Nite. Apparently it was pitched last year – but the terms gave nets cold feet (they wanted it picked up for a guaranteed 100 episodes if the first 10 hit a certain number; it’s what they call the “Anger Management” scenario); Warner’s deal will assumingly be patterned as a more traditional deal.
