A ‘Full House’ revival? It could happen.
August 26, 2014
First “Boy Meets World,” now “Full House.”
Yes, it looks as though another staple of ABC’s TGIF lineup could be coming back to television.
Warner Bros. TV, which produced “House,” is working with series star John Stamos, executive producer Bob Boyett and series creator Jeff Franklin to revive the program in some format, as first reported by TV Guide.
The details are hazy, but Stamos has said before that he’d love to bring back the show, about three girls being raised by their widowed dad, his best friend and their uncle, with some sort of plot twist.
So far no network has committed to an order, but other original cast members, including Bob Saget and Dave Coulier, are said to be involved.
Saget, Coulier and Stamos famously appeared in an Oikos yogurt commercial during this year’s Super Bowl.
Meanwhile, in other programming, Netflix didn’t need long to make up its mind about “BoJack Horseman,” an animated spoof voiced by Will Arnett.
The series debuted on the streaming service on Friday. On Tuesday, Netflix gave the program a 12-episode second-season order.
