According to TVLine.com, which broke the news, the new show would be called “Fuller House” and would focus on Candace Cameron Bure’s character of eldest daughter D.J. and her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
A Netflix rep said the report is “just a rumor,” without elaborating. Warner Bros., which produced the sitcom, declined to comment.
Episodes of the original show have aired on Nickelodeon channels like The N and Teen Nick before landing at Nick at Nite. It maintains solid ratings there and has averaged about 1.2 million viewers Monday through Wednesday of this week.
Members of the “Full” cast reunited for a yogurt commercial that aired during the 2014 Super Bowl, while Stamos and Saget also appeared together in a 2011 College Humor skit. The show has a sizable Internet fanbase, with 4.3 million likes on Facebook.
“Full House,” created by Jeff Franklin, also starred Dave Coulier, Jodie Sweetin, twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Lori Loughlin and Scott Weinger.
