Oh, Mylanta! Are Uncle Jesse, Joey, DJ, Stephanie, Michelle and the crew finally going to reunite under the same roof? You got it, dude. Nearly 20 years after the series finale aired, Warner Bros. are opening up the floor for discussions about reviving the sitcom – along with some original cast members – for its return to TV. It is apparently the brain child of John Stamos, with original series creator Jeff Franklin and executive producer Bob Boyett on board.

After Girl Meets World became a successful reboot of ABC's TGIF staple Boy Meets World for the Disney Channel, Warner is hoping to cash in on the nostalgia with Full House. John Stamos was hinting at the possibility of its comeback as early as last year. “We’re sort of working on a twist on a sequel," Stamos quipped on an episode of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. "But we don't know if it's going to happen yet or not."

If the ratings of Full House reruns on Nick at Nite are any indication (1.5 million per episode average, up 7% from just last year), the house could fill up quite quickly if they were to open the door one more time. Expect the return of Candace Cameron-Bure (DJ Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) with some involvement from Bob Saget (Danny) and David Alan Coulier (Joey Gladstone). The real question is: are Mary-Kate and Ashley in favour?
