Could we be one step closer to seeing a childhood favorite revived? Possibly.
Netflix may be close to ordering a new season of “Full House,” the ABC sitcom that ran from 1987-95 starring John Stamos and Bob Saget, according to TVLine.com.
“Full House,” also starred Dave Coulier, Jodie Sweetin and twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
The series was a big hit in Saudi Arabia during the late 1980s, where it ran on Saudi channel 2 after Iftar (breaking of fast) during the holy month of Ramadan.
According to the news site, the new series would be called “Fuller House” and would be centered on Candace Cameron Bure’s character of eldest daughter D.J. and her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
In a statement published by Variety.com, a Netflix representative said the report is “just a rumor” while sitcom producer Warner Bros. declined to comment.
The original show created by Jeff Franklin maintained an average of 1.2 million viewers Monday through Wednesday of this week while airing on Nickelodeon channels, Variety.com reported. Also, the show has a strong social media fanbase, with 4.3 million likes on Facebook.
