full house sequel ‘Full House’ Sequel Series in Development   Will You Watch? [UPDATED]


UPDATE: #twistending! A Full House reboot could REALLY BE HAPPENING Now!!!!


One of the most beloved sitcoms from the ’90s, Full House, may soon be returning to TV in a sequel series centered on D.J. and Stephanie Tanner. Don’t worry: Danny, Joey, Jesse and Rebecca are likely returning, as well.

News of the Tanner family’s return was originally revealed in the Newport Gazette, where series creator Jeff Franklin let slip that he had begun work on a sequel to the hit ABC series. Additionally, Franklin also hinted that the majority of the cast has already shown interest in reprising their roles.

Here’s what Franklin had to say:

Last month I was asked by ABC and [Warner Bros.] to write a new show for the Full House characters.

Everyone I’ve spoken with were very open to the idea [of returning].

Though two brief quotes isn’t much to go on, news of a Full House revival can’t be too much of surprise to anyone now that Boy Meets World will be returning this year in a sequel series of its own titled Girl Meets World. Still, with a 20-year gap between its cancellation and a return, there’s a chance that fans might not champion a Tanner sequel in the same way they did with Corey and Topanga – but that’s not to say Full House hasn’t earned a second chance, by any means.

Update: Casting list for the Full House Sequel Revealed!

When Full House was canceled in 1994, it was still pulling in 11 million viewers an episode. In Dave Coulier’s episode of The Kevin Pollak Chat Show, the former Full House star revealed that Ted Harbert – then president of ABC Entertainment (now Chairman of NBC Broadcasting) – wanted to move their more mature 9pm line-up, Roseanne and Home Improvement, to 8pm. In order to do that, Full House had to be canceled.

After cancellation, Full House went on to gain even more popularity in syndication, where it was said to be so popular that there would always be an episode of Full House airing somewhere in the world. Today, Full House still airs in 11 countries, including America. Perhaps it’s not such a bad idea to give this juggernaut show another go?

Of course, with a sequel series comes new faces, new settings – essentially new everything, except the familiar characters. As with the Boy Meets World sequel, the Full House sequel will continue by telling a modern tale of the Tanner family, with D.J. and Stephanie (and most likely their family) taking a majority of the lead. That being said, if the way in which D.J. and Stephanie grew up plays a part in how they’ll raise their own families, don’t be surprised if some familiar faces move in to help make each their homes as “full” as they can be.

If all goes well, expect to see a Full House sequel make its way to television in 2014

  1. I wonder if Mary Kate and Ashley would come back and play Michelle all grown up, if Full house indeed does come back? I would absolutely love seeing those two back in the show.

    • I don’t think they will…believe me I love MK & Ash the were my childhood idols and I still am pretty obsessed, I’ll admit! :) But they’ve changed so much over the years I can’t possibly see how they could take up this role again, they were so young when they were in Full House!

    • I hope that Michelle still stays.

  2. I want to see them all come back

    • I hope it happens

  3. I hope they do a sequel, though it may not be the same as it was before. It would be really cool having the show back.

  4. I hope they don’t come back. I LOVE full house, but I think they should just leave the magic of that show in the 90s. They’ll ruin it.

  5. Will it be in the same house will it be the same people I really want to see it



  8. I’m just now double digits and full house is my life. I have full house fever because I’m so obsessed. If you have full house fever to, say I

    • I

  9. I hope Full House “2″ will be out in 2014… I really love Full House. I still watch it every day even I know every episode by heart.

  10. whoah this weblog is excellent i really like reading your posts.
    Stay up the good work! You know, a lot of people are searching
    round for this info, you can help them greatly.

    • Thanks for bein positive

  11. I wannah know what it will be called… THANK GODITS COMING BACK…

  12. May bet if it was Danny jessy and Joey and jessy was divorced getting girls and the step and DJ were makin apparence… Think outta the box c’mon

    • Maybe*

  13. They should make it like its in the 90s because our society is messed up. Like seriously, not much cussing cus then I won’t be allowed to watch it. Try to make it similar please! Make sure Comet (the dog) is in it. But it probably won’t be the same dog. But we need a lab. Lol

  14. I can see Mary Kate coming on to play Michelle, she still does acting. Ashley stopped acting to focus on designing fashion last I heard.

  15. I am obsest with full house I really want them to make the show agian I am obsest with it please make it again I think I have a problem

  16. I want to see them come back I will watch the heck out of the show. I love the cast and the show those people do such a good job for the show.

  17. I’m still watching full house repeatedly and it never gets old. I’d definitely want a sequel to it and hope all the main casts would be back. Not too sure if the Olsen twins are comin back but i hope that wouldn’t be a factor in stopping the show.. probably juz change the script if they have to but since majority of them want in, we shouldn’t let juz one role bring the whole team down right? =D *fingers crossed*

  18. i would welcome back a return especially if dj and steph are really the lead characters. to me they were the most interesting and developed tanner girls. i can do without michelle unless they make her a lot less annoying and irritating.

  19. Have Kimmy Gibbler’s Uncle Yohan On Full House, With Gerardo Mejia (Rico Suave) Doing The Role As Him

    • And Bud Bundy (David Faustino) To Be DJ’s Husband

  20. The entire cast needs to come back, even if they didn’t I can’t wait to watch!!!

  21. OMG! As a 44 year-old woman who used to watch Full House in it’s earlier seasons… I have grown to love it even more now since my two boys love it and watch it at night before bed. We need more shows like this among a sea of exhaustingly predictable reality shows. I think it is wonderful and hope to hear more about it soon.

  22. Our family will definitely watch. My son loves the old episodes that are on the air now!
