The spinoff revival to “Full House” has been rumored for quite a while now and reports are saying that this plan is closer to coming true. Netflix is apparently working out a deal to make this happen.
Potentially entitled “Fuller House” the spinoff series will feature Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ in the 1980s series. She will be joined by Andrea Barber, who will play her best friend Kimmy. Netflix is planning a 13-episode order for this new series, which will be shot as a multi-camera.
Reports from TV Line also indicate that the show’s original lead stars, John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier will be appearing in the spinoff as guests. Stamos, by the way, is behind the potential revival. In an interview with “Watch What Happens Live” last year, he talked about working on a sequel with a twist.
The cast of “Full House” remains very much in touch with each other even after the show has ended two decades ago. In fact, the three male leads appeared together on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show and the cast also had a mini-reunion recently during a birthday party.
Curiously though, the reports does not indicate anything about the Olsen twins, Mary Kate and Ashley, who actually got their big start in series as childhood actors.
Jodie Sweetin, who plays the other sister, isn’t also clear about returning to the spinoff, however, the actress did say that she would be excited about appearing in a new “Full House” project, should it happen.
“Full House” isn’t the only series from the 80s and 90s which are getting revived. FOX is doing “The X-Files” limited event, while NBC is bringing back the comedy “Coach.” Showtime is also set to produce the “Twin Peaks” revival for next year.
