Have mercy: Could the Tanner family be making a small-screen comeback soon? Yes, according to a new report.
TVLine writes that Netflix is on the cusp of greenlighting a "Full House" reunion series, dubbed "Fuller House," that would follow members of the ABC sitcom family as adults. According to the site, the 13-episode series would focus on D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), and feature guest appearances from "Full House" regulars Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier.
Rumors of a proposed "Full House" reboot swirled last summer, though that report stated that Jodie Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner, would also be involved. TVLine's report makes no mention of Sweetin's potential involvement; we're guessing that the Olsen twins are also not planning on appearing.
According to TVLine, original creator Jeff Franklin and original producers Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett are all slated to work on "Fuller House," too. Stamos will also produce the new series.
Netflix and studio Warner Bros. are staying quiet about the report so far, but considering how close the cast has remained over the years, we wouldn't be surprised to see them reunite for more Tanner adventures. Maybe the cast can sing the theme song themselves this time around?
