Whatever happened to predictability? Looks like you can find it pretty much anywhere in Hollywood. As anyone with a childhood knows, Hollywood loves to repackage and rebrand old material to try to cash in on your nostalgia. Most times, this is rather unsuccessful, both in execution and reception, but with the exploding TV-revival trend that includes Coach (coming to NBC as early as this fall), The X-Files (returning to Fox next season), Twin Peaks (bowing hopefully on Showtime in 2016) and FH‘s TGIF successor Boy Meets World (currently airing on Disney Channel via Girl Meets World), fans are getting more of the properties they once held dear. Well, another sitcom is about to get rebooted and all we can do is hope that it will be as wonderful as we all want it to be.
TV Line reports that the cast is reuniting for a 13-episode reunion series called (and I’m not making this up) Fuller House, and Netflix is “thisclose” to ordering it.
Candace Cameron Bure will return as D.J. and Andrea Barber will be back as her spazzy best friend Kimmy, John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are being eyed to make guest appearances, with Stamos having a producer role, as well. The project is being shepherded by the original show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, who will exec-produce alongside Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett (both of whom also EP’d the original).
The picture of Michelle says it all.
Reps for Netflix and Warner Bros. declined to comment for this story. Though over the years, the cast has remained friends and almost all of the original actors have expressed an interest in returning to the series for quite some time. So it seems, maybe, the planets are finally in line for this to actually happen.
Hopefully, everything will pan out with the Full House revival and we may soon see exactly what the Tanner tribe has been up to for the past 20 years.
In the meanwhile, let’s all hope the new theme song is every bit the earworm the original was.
