In the words of Uncle Jesse, “Have mercy!”
TV Guide magazine first reported — and The Hollywood Reporter confirmed — that John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) will be teaming up with the show’s original executive producer Bob Boyett and series creator Jeff Franklin for a Full House reboot.
Franklin will pen the series with original cast members Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), and Andrea Barker (Kimmy Gibbler) set to reprise their roles.
Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) and Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey) will play indefinite roles in the modernized Full House, according to The Hollywood Reporter, while Mary-Kate and/or Ashley Olsen are unconfirmed to make their return as Michelle Tanner.
The series ran for eight seasons from 1987 to 1995, and the cast has remained close friends over the years long after the final scene was shot. John celebrated his 50th birthday last August with Ashley, Bob, Candace, and Lori Laughlin in attendance. Bob, Dave, and John also reunited on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in January and recreated a scene from Full House to help ease the host’s transition to The Tonight Show.
