Classic Sitcom "Full House" To Be Revived?

ABC's classic family sitcom "Full House," which ran from 1987 to 1995, could be getting a revival.

The show is still a ratings powerhouse thanks to repeats on Nick at Nite. Now Warner Bros. TV is considering a new take on the property, but one that would include some of the original cast.

John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, has an ownership stake in the show and so has good reason to champion the new series. Original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are actively involved with Franklin writing the new version.

On screen wise Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) are on board. Fellow dads Bob Saget (Danny) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are also said to be involved in some way.

Several of the cast has been hinting at the prospect all year in late night interviews, but at the time things were too early in the development process. The recent success of Disney Channel's "Girl Meets World," a revival/continuation of "Boy Meets World," certainly shows there's audiences out there for the return of old sitcoms.
