A 13-episode Full House spinoff titled Fuller House is reportedly in the works at Netflix with Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber in the lead roles. Now, series alum Bob Saget has suggested the rumors are accurate.
Update (April 15, 2015): Bob Saget appeared on ABC’s The View this morning and essentially confirmed the news is true. “Business people are talking to each other,” he said when asked about the Full House reunion rumors. “I don’t know if it’s about that …There’s a chance, I guess.”
Then he made a comment that aligned with the report below. “It’d be nice for the older kids on [Full House] that are women now to do [a show] if they wanted to do it,” Saget said. “And if it works out that I did something, and it didn’t …We have a legacy to protect!”
Original story (April 2): According to TV Line, Netflix is “thisclose” (their emphasis and phrasing) to green lighting the Full House “continuation” with 13 episodes. Full House characters D.J. and Kimmy, played by Bure and Barber, will star.
The report indicates Full House stars John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier are expected to make guest appearances. Stamos is producing the project alongside the original Full House creators Jeff Franklin, Thomas L. Miller, and Robert L. Boyett.
The Olsen twins are not mentioned in TV Line’s report, indicating the two actresses are uninterested in returning.
Full House has been off the air since 1995 after eight seasons and 192 episodes, but the show has remained in the hearts of viewers ever since.
Here’s what Bure and Barber look like today. We suspect they’re smiling because they’re about to make a ton of money!
TV revivals are a hot trend right now. Fox recently announced six more episodes of The X-Files, and Disney Channel is now airing the Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World.
Netflix has clearly aimed for projects that would create big buzz, like the recently announced Series of Unfortunate Events television series and the Magic School Bus reboot. They are also rumored to be in talks with Nintendo for a Legend of Zelda series.
Like the aforementioned projects, a Full House revival will only help the streaming service sign up new customers.
