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. April fools? o_O

    • Yup.

    • 100% April Fools.

  2. Honestly, only thing I would say is an april’s fool joke for sure is if they said a squirrel girl movie was announced

    • Hey now… thatd be great!

  3. Are the Olson twins too busy to sign up? Id give the show a chance but i doubt it’ll be more enjoyable than the original show was.

  4. Skeptical, im along the lines with Average though, this seems like it might be an April Fools prank. But if it is real, i’ll definitely give it a try. I loved (and still do) the series and am a bit curious to see how this would work,

  5. evey april fools joke screen rant does they lose cred. so lets hoop this and the dave chapelle one are the last ones……………seriously

    • How would they lose cred? This is April 1 – it’s to be expected. I would say that you lose cred for not clicking on the source link which made it obvious that it was a joke.

  6. HaHaHah! How Hilarious ?

  7. If it’s a joke, they got me. I was ready to declare the end of Western Civilization until I started reading the comments. I pray it’s a joke.

  8. I fell for the Chappelle show one. It won’t happen twice Screenrant.

    • For real… but the scary part is, I would not have been surprised if it turned out to be true. I am kinda bummed out after the Chappelle Show prank. Eff you Screenrant!

  9. Does this have to be an April Fools Joke?

  10. If people would click on the “sources” that they use then they would find out the answer very quickly to if it is legitimate or not…

  11. It’s a joke. Click on the Newport Gazette.

  12. I hate you -_-*

  13. April fools joke. But I could see something like this getting enough people interested, that it could catch the attention of ABC or another network to see if it is possible.

  14. I can see what’s going on here, First Boys Meet World & now Full House.
    I know the 90′s where wonderfull but is going to be hard to bring them back.
    I love the 90′s myself,but times are not the same.

  15. 2 april fools jokes, really guys?

    and they were both pretty much the same thing. I knew this was fake as soon as i read that the adult cast would be back too. I dont think Stamos or Saget would want to be back as full time cast. It would do the same thing as Girl Meets World and follow the child character all grown up, like how Michelle is dating the former French Prime Minister

  16. Screenrant is hilarious!!

  17. This one is funny. The Chappelle one not so much. What Dave did was pretty heroic… to turn away from the evil’s of “the machine,” thumbing his nose at the idea of wealth and vanity. To discredit that, even as a joke… not a classy move.

  18. Wow, and here I thought you were a professional site? This is not funny. I come here for NEWS not JOKES!

    • Well… we like to have fun on April Fool’s Day around here. And we get to do what we want around here. That’s why we’re an independent site. BUT


      • I personally love when sites take time to come up with inventive and fun stuff for days like this. I was a bit disappointed that I saw through this and the Chappelle one instantly though. Last year’s TMNT one was gold.

      • Yeah you’re an independent site all right. Is your intention to upset, and lose trust in your loyal visitors?

        • You must be a really fun person to be around.

          • Sorry if acting like an adult isn’t your thing.

  19. Wow, looking through the comments it shows not many have a sense of humor anymore.

  20. if this is true i may watch i love full house but if michelles not there then no michelle and jesses relationship was always my faviorit part

  21. What about Michelle?

  22. Please don’t EVER get my hopes up ever again if you are just going to tease me. I know it was intended to be an April Fool’s joke but some people were actually very excited about this!

  23. Never funny. It felt like Uncle Jessie was a pedophile.

  24. This is bs I was excited for a min but I know the the Olsen twins and Jon stamps think they are to good for it …stamos is the reason we didn’t even get a series finale..

  25. This is sucks I was excited for a min but I know the the Olsen twins and Jon stamps think they are to good for it …stamos is the reason we didn’t even get a series finale..

  26. I would love to meet the cast

  27. i really hope that full house does come back! i grew up with the show, and today me and my 3 kids watch together still!…

  28. Can you tell me the audition details?
