“Have mercy!” Is “Full House” really coming back to TV? According to sources, a revival of the ’90s ratings darling is in the early stages of development, according to Variety.com.
While nothing is set in stone, there’s been talks at Warner Bros. Television about bringing back the sitcom, and some of its original cast, for a revival nearly 20 years after the long-running ABC show had its finale. Cast member John Stamos is reportedly at the head of the idea, along with original series creator Jeff Franklin and executive producer Bob Boyett.
It’s little wonder why Warner Bros. would want to bring back “Full House.” Nick at Nite reports that its primetime repeats of the show average 1.5 million viewers, pulling in fans that are too young to remember (or weren’t even born during) the show’s original run from 1987 to 1995.
