A report in TV Guide this week that a revival of “Full House,” a popular family friendly sitcom that aired from 1987 to 1995, is potentially in the works has piqued fans’ curiosity — but how likely is it that the series will actually return to the small screen?
Right now, it’s unclear, but one former cast member told TheBlaze Wednesday that a reboot could come to fruition if fans truly want it.
”Full House’ fans are the best and from so many generations,” actress Candace Cameron Bure said. “If they really want a revival show, they’ll probably get it!”
Bure, who played D.J. Tanner in the series, didn’t divulge much more than that, though she did express just how willing she’d be to take part in a revamped “Full House” project.
“I’ve always said — I love my ['Full House'] family and would be up for it if it was the right concept, right script and the right timing,” she said.
According to a TV Guide report Tuesday, Warner Bros. TV is considering bringing the show back with a fresh take and with some of the original cast resuming their roles.
Actor John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, is said to be leading the push for the show’s return.
The report said that Bure, Jodie Sweetin, who played Stephanie Tanner, and Andrea Barber, who played Kimmy, are on board, though Bure didn’t confirm or deny these details in comments to TheBlaze.
Other original cast members, including Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are also said to be involved, with Bob Boyett, the original executive producer, and Jeff Franklin, the show’s creator, reportedly penning the new script.
This isn’t the first time that speculation about the show’s return has run rampant, with Stamos claiming in the past that a “Full House” movie had been developed and with unnamed sources telling the outlet that a reboot was unsuccessfully pitched last year.
Revivals of other popular 90s shows like “90210″ and “Boy Meets World” have already been attempted, with the “90210″ reboot ending in 2013 after five seasons and with “Girl Meets World,” which is currently airing on Disney, recently being green-lighted for a second season.
Bure, a Christian, has spoken extensively in the past with TheBlaze about her faith and her career in Hollywood.
