New ‘Full House’ Series Revolving Around D.J. & Stephanie Coming to TV


New ‘Full House’ Series Revolving Around Stephanie & D.J. Coming to TV


UPDATE: Unfortunately, for those hoping this was true, the new 'Full House' series turned out to be an Internet hoax. My apologies for getting people excited. Also, those that didn't want this to happen, they can now breathe a sigh of relief (that is until someone else tries to reboot 'Full House' and/or develop a sequel).

Have Mercy! Reportedly, a new ‘Full House’ series is making its way to the small screen on the ABC network, the hit family show’s original network.

Creator of the iconic TV series Jeff Franklin spoke with the Newport Gazette about the so-called reboot, "Last month I was asked by ABC and [Warner Bros.] to write a new show for the ‘Full House’ characters."

So, which characters are supposedly being resurrected? It’s none other than sisters D.J. and Stephanie Tanner, originally played by Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin, respectively. The new series would showcase the lives of D.J. and Stephanie at their current ages of 37 and 31.

One important question remains: will Cameron Bure and Sweetin return to their ‘Full House’ roots? So far, nothing is set in stone, but according to Franklin, "Everyone I've spoken with were very open to the idea [of returning]."

All kinds of classic teen hits are getting a second chance, like ‘Boy Meets World’ with its spin-off ‘Girl Meets World,’ which is coming to the Disney Channel and will revolve around Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) daughter.

What do you think? Does a new series revolving around Stephanie and D.J. sound like a hit or a miss? Would you want to see the characters played by Cameron Bure and Sweetin, or new actresses? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments.

Current TV leaves almost no room for a sweet (and sometimes sickly sweet) show such as "Full House". The age of "clean" TV is gone and has been mostly replaced by so-called reality shows (who watches this garbage anyway?). Sometimes I couldn't stand to watch "Full House" because all the harmony was too much, and I wouldn't watch it if they would keep up this stuff.

I think that would be great. Altho, only with the original cast and a clean family show.

Guess they need the $$$ by now. They better step it up if they want to compete with the crap we all watch now.

I (and I'm sure a lot of other people who grew up watching Full House) would probably tune into the first few episodes, just for the novelty of seeing D.J. and Stephanie all grown up. That said, I can't imagine this concept having much long-term potential. And my interest immediately drops to 0 if Candace and Jodie don't return.
