Netflix is one step closer 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, 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.

    Bob Saget should NEVER appear on the new show coming up. For years all he has done is bash the old show and how sickeningly sweet he thought it was. He Hated appearing on it. He doesn’t deserve to have any part in it, even behind the scenes. It used to make me so mad when I would come across something he had written. That show never needed him and doesn’ t need him now either!
