Hey guys, Jana here,
Quality family programming that kids and parents can enjoy is a tough nut to crack. ABC did it in the late 80’s with ‘Full House‘. If re-run viewings are any indicator, the show is still a fan favorite. This is good news for the crew that is interested in doing a follow-up to the sitcom about a truly original kind of family.
Almost 20 years after the last season, there is a plan in place to bring about a sequel. Series star John Stamos stated “We’re sort of working on a twist on a sequel, but we don’t know if it’s going to happen yet or not.” Even if the show does move forward, it appears highly unlikely that Stamos will star again as the Elvis-obsessed Uncle Jessie. Instead he will hold a producing position. The series creator, Jeff Franklin is working on a new script for the project and it’s in very early stages of development and isn’t attached to a current network.
The only original cast members we’re fairly certain that will appear in a re-vamp are Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. Since ‘Full House’ wrapped, Bure has been working fairly steady in the movie world with family-friendly films that uphold her Christian faith that she speaks of often. Sweetin has had fewer acting opportunities, she battled a drug addiction and appears to have won. Barber has disappeared from the entertainment world entirely. She married, graduated college, had 2 children and moved with her husband to England so they could both study at the University of York. No word yet on if Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are interested in reprising their roles for a new experience.
One thing I know for sure is that the last thing I want to hear more than once if Coulier does return as Joey Gladstone, is his cut-it-out routine. I know impressions were a big thing of his and can tolerate some of them. The last thing I want is to see that same bit for another few years every time he’s on screen.
