It's been 20 years since "Full House" went off the air, but "TV Guide" is reporting that a REVIVAL is in the works. And not only that, but a lot of the original cast members are involved.
Uncle Jesse . . . the legendary JOHN STAMOS . . . is reportedly "leading the charge," which makes sense because he has an ownership stake in the show.
Supposedly, Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are also on board. Plus,Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are, quote, "involved in some way."
That's virtually EVERYONE . . . with the obvious exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who teamed up to play Michelle, and Lori Loughlin. She played Rebecca, the super hot chick that induced puberty in boys everywhere.
The show's original creator is writing the new version, and a former executive producer is also back in the fold.
As exciting as all this sounds, it's unclear how far along it is. It sounds like the plan is to pull the show together to pitch it to networks . . . but so far there's no indication who might be interested.
It seems like it could be a success though. Repeats of the original episodes have been drawing around 1.5 million viewers on Nick at Nite. Not only is that good, but the numbers have actually INCREASED from last year.
No one from "Full House" has commented on the report, but Stamos has dropped hints about a potential revival several times over the past five years.
