When the ABC Network launched its sitcom block for TGIF, “Full House” became a flagship for the category.
The sitcom, which centered on a widower trying to raise his daughters along with his best friend and brother-in-law, launched the careers of several members of its cast and made a rating giant for Fridays. It was eventually moved to Tuesday nights and stopped airing after eight seasons.

In 2016, the sitcom was rebooted as a Netflix original, “Fuller House.” This ran for five seasons before ending in 2020. Many well-known celebrities have lead roles or were briefly featured between the original and its spin-off.
A cast member from the “Full House” and “Fuller House” sitcom recently revealed that she’d be interested in re-enacting her role in a potential “Full House” follow-up series.
Read on for more details.
‘I Love Working With Them’
In an interview with E! News, Jodie Sweetin disclosed her intentions to reprise her role in a potential “Full House” sitcom.
“Absolutely. I love working with them,” she explained to hosts Justin Sylvester and Loni Love. “It’s like, ‘Do you wanna go back and have fun and work with the people that you love, that you’ve known your whole life?’ Of course!”
Since the spin-off ended in 2020, there’s been no plans from Netflix for a revival. Nonetheless, Sweetin and co-stars Andrea Barber and Candace Cameron Bure have an idea for a show in mind.
“We always joke about our Golden Girls sort of future show,” Sweetin shared, “the three of us, living somewhere in Miami.”
This is not the first time she’d expressed her intentions for a reprise. While speaking on Australia’s “The Morning Show” in October, she talked about being interested in another spin-off.
“If you would have asked me twenty years ago if I would be coming back someday to play Stephanie Tanner as an adult, I would have been like, I don’t think that is going to happen. Who knows, in another 10, 15, 20 years we will do Fullest House, and I get to finally portray my Bea Arthur wannabe as one of The Golden Girls.”
Other Cast Members Are Also Interested In Another Spin-off
Other cast members share the same sentiments as Sweetin.
While speaking with Today in March, the franchise star Dave Coulier noted that most cast members would return for another reprise if given the opportunity. He even jocularly added that the third series should be called “Fullest House.”
“Like, okay, we’ll do Fullest House. I think we would in a heartbeat,” Coulier noted.
Fellow cast members Barber and Candace agreed, adding that although Bob Saget wasn’t around anymore, he’d want them to do the follow-up series without him.
“It would be hard, but I think Bob would want that,” Barber admitted.
Before Saget’s Death, the icon had also spoken about the possibilities of a follow-up series. Back in 2016, he jokingly told EW of a series that would be played by “children of the new kids of the show.” “You know how aliens sleep for a thousand years? They’ll just open something, and I’ll still be there. I’ll be able to do it. I can do it from a nursing home. I don’t care. I will never let the legacy be tarnished.”
He also pitched another idea to Variety in 2017, adding that he’d do it for as long as it goes.” One day the show will be called Fullest House, and it will be me in an urn by the window.”
Sweetin Shared That Bob Would Have Been Thrilled At The Publicity His Death Was Getting
While on the interview with E!, Sweetin opened up about the death of Bob Saget, who passed away last January, and how he’d have loved the press around his death.
She mentioned that all she could think of when everyone was paying their tributes was how her TV dad would have been excited that everyone was talking about him.
“He’d be, like, ‘Oh, my god, did you see this? Not to be dramatic, but look at me, look at me!’ He would have been thrilled that he was the No. 1 topic of conversation, and not in a narcissistic way.”
Jodie Sweetin Would Be Tying The Nuptial Knot Soon
The actress also opened up about her wedding to Mescal Wasilewski, whom she got engaged to a few months after Saget’s death.
Although she’s in the thick of planning and other wedding preparations, she has already assigned roles to her 14-year-old Zoie and 11-year-old Beatrix.
Sweetin shared that while Zoie gets to be her “maid of honor,” Beatrix gets to be her “mini maid of honor.” She also claimed that her daughters love her fiancé so much that they “really get along” with him.
