Per our sister site Deadline, Stamos will play the hedge-fund billionaire husband of Natalie Zea’s Mickey, whose marriage has bought him membership at the club. (Editor’s note: That is one seriously good-looking couple.)
John Stamos is joining a country club. The Full House actor will star in ABC’s midseason drama Members Only, EW confirmed. The show, formerly titled The Club, has been described as an “upstairs/downstairs” look at a tony Connecticut country club. Stamos will play Randy, a “fast-talking” hedge fund billionaire who only receives membership to the club thanks to his wife Mickey, played by Natalie Zea. Deadline first reported the news.

Stephen J. Cannell’s “The Greatest American Hero” is suiting up for a revival at Fox, a network that didn’t exist during the show’s initial run on ABC in 1981-83. The quirky action-comedy is one of a spate of classic-tv remakes percolating at the major networks.
Rodney Rothman (“22 Jump Street”) is penning the script for the new “Hero” and will exec produce with Phil Lord and Chris Miller for 20th Century Fox TV. Tawnia McKiernan, a busy TV director who is the daughter of Cannell, will exec produce along with Seth Cohen, head of TV for Lord and Miller’s 20th TV-based banner.
“Hero” had a bumpy run starting as a midseason entry for ABC in March 1981. But the show remains well-loved among TV buffs for its offbeat mix of comedy and fantasy. The original starred William Katt as a goofy high school teacher who has an alien »

90s nostalgia is running rampant, with The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story airing on Labor Day, Girl Meets World pulling in huge ratings for Disney, and a Full House reboot on the way. Now comes the Friends reunion we've all been waiting for, which happened last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
Just like everyone else on the planet Jimmy Kimmel was a big fan of the show Friends. In fact he loved it so much that he wrote some Friends fan fiction and he managed to get Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to act it out with him. Check it out.
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow have reunited over the years on their various tv series and projects, but this is the first time the trio has appeared on the Friends set since the final episode aired in May of 2004.
But where is Matt LeBlanc, »
This sight is so bittersweet. While seeing Jennifer Anison, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow together again makes our hearts do a happy dance because we love it so much, it also reminds us that as much as a Friends reunion needs to happen, it won't (however, look at Full House...we're not going to lose hope!). But anyway, this will do for now. The three ladies we all remember as Monica Geller, Rachel Green and Pheobe Buffay reunited on Jimmy Kimmel Live at "Monica's apartment" for what may be the greatest thing on late-night TV tonight. "We had a ball," Aniston tells E! News at the Life of Crime premiere in Los Angeles, and reiterated that this isn't a hint of anything to come, »
We're still reeling from the news that we could be getting more Full House. Yesterday we were gifted with the announcement that a Full House revival is reportedly in the works with much of the original cast on board, and it's pretty much the greatest idea ever. Everyone—John Stamos, original Full House executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier—is involved except for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Lori Loughlin, and while nothing is official yet, we are so down with this idea, dude. But then we started thinking...out of all the Tgif shows from that golden era of TV, is Full House the one we want revived, »
There's no shortage of Full House fans eager to see the rumored sitcom revival make it to television. The entirety of the cast, however, may be another story. "Not everybody would want to do it. Maybe two-thirds of the cast would want to," Bob Saget, who played Danny Tanner on the 1987-1995 series, told People in April while promoting his memoir, Dirty Daddy. "John [Stamos] is such a good guy, and I think he would want it to happen in some way if it could. There's some stuff going on, I don't get involved in it, where people were trying to »

Everywhere you look, it seems reunion rumors are floating around for one old show or another. Now, TV execs apparently have their eyes on the Tanner family. TV Guide had the news first, reporting that executives at Warner Bros. TV are hoping to get at least some of the original Full House cast back together for a new take on the show. John Stamos, aka Uncle Jesse, is reportedly all on board for the effort, though no cast members have commented. Newsy reports: »

Perhaps it's the success of the Girl Meets World sequel to Boy Meets World, but there is now a Full House reboot in the works involving a lot of the original cast. If Full House does return to the airwaves, continuing the stories of the Tanner family, here are a five other beloved shows from the 90s that we hope producers, creators and stars are brainstorming new ideas for right now. »
At the heels of Girl Meets World success, we may see another classic 90s show return. Full House is reportedly to be the next show with a new revival in modern days on the cast lives. The show’s cast members minus the Olsen twins have expressed desire to do a new series. The show has been much talked about as a possible one with most of the cast jumping for mini reunions. If the reports do turn out to be true, fans can expect most of the original team coming back behind the scenes.
We love this concept. The show has always been a classic and since most of the cast is willing to join it, we do not see a reason for them not to. Especially if networks are showing interesting in investing in more classic series revivals. It would certainly bring back family TV shows and nobody can complain about that. »

Warner Bros Television is in early stages to bring the entire original cast for a sequel to the "Full House" sitcom. Series creator Jeff Franklin and original executive producer Bob Boyett are currently putting the project together. TV Guide magazine says that John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), Candace Cameron (DJ), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are already on board. Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are also said to be involved in some capacity. No word if Mary-Kate and/or Ashley Olsen (Michelle) will want to return. It's still unclear what the producers are planning, but Stamos recently hinted that the new version will have a twist. The original show aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995. It's re-runs remain a hit on Nick at Nite. »
Original castmember John Stamos has an ownership stake in the series and is leading the way. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin (who's writing the new version) are also actively involved.
According to the report, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber are all on board, while Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are involved in some way. There's been no mention of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen taking part yet.
Castmember Lori Loughlin recently told E! she's skeptical of reunions. She said, »
Despite all the suggestions that we’re in a new golden age of television, there’s still plenty of hand-wringing and pearl clutching over the phenomenon of binge watching. Some argue simply that it undermines the experience. It’s also been suggested that binge watching can kill.
That a lot of us are binging, particularly on streaming content, is clear. The health scare aspect seems to ignore that concerns over how much is too much go back to at least the 1980s. The argument that we’re somehow depriving ourselves by not seeing a series as originally intended (complete with months-long, between-seasons hiatuses) ignores the very basic human tendency to want more of what we like. Binge watching is perhaps the highest compliment that can be paid to an ongoing series.
Which brings us to Netflix’s latest original series, Bojack Horseman. It’s so elegantly conceived and wonderfully written that, »

Everywhere you look...there's another defunct Tgif series rising from the grave. Ok, well at least two. Hot on the heels of the Disney Channel's top-rated "Boy Meets World" sequel series "Girl Meets World," Warner Bros. Television is now eyeing a followup to the hit '80s and '90s sitcom "Full House" with original cast members John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), Andrea Barber (Kimmy), Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) attached in some capacity. "Full House" creator Jeff Franklin is writing the new series, which would continue the saga of the the beloved Tanner family. Saget, Stamos and Coulier have been hinting at a "Full House" reunion as of late; the trio appeared on "Jimmy Fallon" dressed as their characters from the show back in January and also starred together in a Super Bowl ad for Dannon Oikos yogurt.

If you’ve already exhausted your syndicated TV options — heavy on the Friends, light on the Family Matters, some Seinfeld thrown in for good measure – we’ve got the throwback news you’re apparently pretty hungry for. New Full House. No, really. And, no, it’s not suddenly 1997, so stop shaking your calendar (and making that joke). TV Guide reports that “Warner Bros. TV is mulling a new take on Full House, with some of the original cast intact.” What. Well, it turns out that Full House continues to perform exceptionally well on the syndicated market (it does seem to be on all the time) and that measurable audience interest, combined with the actual cast’s apparent desire to come back from some more family-friendly hijinks, means that little dollar signs are positively dancing in the heads of the Warner Bros. brass. Honestly, who could possibly blame them? The outlet also shares that John Stamos (Uncle Jesse »

While we here at Screenrant have long suspected this, it can now be officially confirmed: our own Anthony Ocasio possesses psychic powers. Back in 2013, Anthony penned a quite amusing April Fools joke concerning a Full House revival/sequel series that would focus on the adult Tanner daughters and their families. Well, we promise you that today’s update is not another gag. According to TV Guide, Warner Bros. TV and Full House’s original producers and stars are considering a resurrection of the popular ’90s sitcom.
