As of today, it seems like revivals and the ‘90s are a common trend as revivals of beloved and iconic ‘90s television shows such as “The X-Files” and “Coach” are currently in the works. However, these shows aren’t the only ones getting a much needed revival, as The Hollywood Reporter has just recently announced that the iconic show “Full House” has officially been green lit for a revival. Read on to learn more about the details of the revival of “Full House”.
According to Movie News Guide, rumors of the show getting revived again began last year as it was reported that “Full House” star John Stamos, show creator Jeff Franklin and the show’s executive producer, Bob Boyett, were already talking to Warner Brothers Television regarding this. It was also reported that the revival would be a sequel to the original series, with a twist. Now, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, fans of the hit television show finally now just when the revival will hit the small screen, and what the twist is.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the revival was officially announced and confirmed by actor John Stamos, who announced it during his interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, and by Netflix, who will be reviving the show. According to Netflix, the revival was picked up for a total of thirteen episodes.
The sequel’s twist, as announced by Stamos, is evident in the title of the revival itself- “Fuller House”. The series will follow the hijinks and antics of the Fuller-Tanner household, in San Francisco, after musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), Stephanie’s best friend, and Kimmy’s daughter, Ramona, move into veterinarian and recently widowed and currently pregnant D.J. Tanner-Fuller’s (Candace Cameron-Bure) house in order to help her take care of her two sons- a twelve year old named J.D. and seven year old Max.
According to the article, and to TV Line, the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who became a household name due to their portrayal of Michelle Tanner, Stephanie’s and D.J.’s youngest sister, are currently in talks to appear in the series. However, it was reported that the twins were surprised at this development, as they had not been approached during the early days of the show’s development.
Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin were also not involved or approached during the initial talks of the revival, but just like the twins, things are being negotiated so that they also might appear in the series.
John Stamos, who will be reprising his role as Uncle Jesse, will also executive produce the show.
The show is set to premiere in 2016.
