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 »

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. »

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.

If a yogurt commercial couldn't sate your appetite for “Full House,” good news: There's very early talk of getting the old gang back together. Nothing is a go, and what a reunion or revival might entail is up in the air. But TheWrap has confirmed a report by TV Guide that a return could maybe, possibly be in the offing.

ABC's classic family sitcom "Full House," which ran from 1987 to 1995, could be getting a revival.
The show is still a ratings powerhouse thanks to repeats on Nick at Nite. Now Warner Bros. TV is considering a new take on the property, but one that would include some of the original cast.
John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, has an ownership stake in the show and so has good reason to champion the new series. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are actively involved with Franklin writing the new version.
On screen wise Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are on board. Fellow dads Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are also said to be involved in some way.
Several of the cast has been hinting at the prospect all year in late night interviews, but at the time things were »

Okay, this nostalgia train has got to stop. When it was announced that "Boy Meets World" was returning, but this time spun as "Girl Meets World," it was sort of amusing and cute and fine. No harm done. But is the world really hankering for the further adventures of Danny (Bob Saget), Joey (Dave Coulier), Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) in "Full House"? Warner Bros. thinks there might be interest. TV Guide reports that the studio is "mulling" bringing "Full House" back to the small screen, and not as a reboot, but with the original cast. Stamos and all the (now grown up) kids are said to be down with doing this, but will Saget and Coulier will be "involved"? No word yet on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but considering they've spent the better part of their post-show »

Is the world ready for a reboot of the hit late-80s/early-90s TV show Full House? Wait, don’t answer that yet. First consider that the show continues to have a long shelf-life on Nick at Nite, averaging 1.5 million viewers last year. It is also still one of the most successful sitcoms to come out of the 80s, with whole generations growing up on the trials and tribulations of the Tanner family. It’s hardly surprising then that Warner Brothers television is considering a whole-sale reboot of Full House.
TV Guide (via /Film) reports that John Stamos is involved in pushing for the reboot. Stamos, if you recall, played Uncle Jesse on the show and also happens to have an ownership stake in it (and he hasn’t exactly been in high demand recently). Bob Saget and David Coulier have also both expressed interest, as well as pretty »

Any chance the Olsen twins will make an appearance?!
It's the news all Full House fans have been waiting for.
According to TV Guide Magazine and The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Television is in the early stages of reviving the beloved "Tgif" comedy starring Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis) and Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone).
Stamos is reportedly spearheading the movement, with original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin also on board. Candace Cameron Bure (DJ), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are also said to be involved.

The Full House cast has remained friends since the ABC comedy left the air in 1995, with Saget, Stamos, Bure and Barber attending Coulier's wedding in July, and Stamos reuniting with Coulier and Saget for a memorable Super Bowl ad for Dannon yogurt.

The series ran for eight seasons between 1987 to 1995, following a single father (Bob Saget) who raises his daughters (Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen) with the help his late wife's brother Jesse (John Stamos) and best friend Danny (Dave Coulier) who all live under the same roof.
John Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the show, is "leading the charge" for this revival, according to TV Guide. Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, who played family friend Kimmy, are reportedly on board, with Bob Saget and Dave Coulier said to be involved in some way. Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were not mentioned in this report, so it seems they may not be involved at this time.
Full House fans, this could be the news you've been waiting for: the oft-rumored onscreen reunion might just be happening after all. The beloved '90s sitcom, now a mainstay on Nick at Nite, may be returning to television with some of the original cast, TVGuide.com reports. John Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the show, according to the site, is championing the cause. Other stars - including Candace Cameron Bure (who has said she'd be up for a TV reunion), Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber are on board, and Bob Saget and Dave Coulier may also be »
