'Full House'

Full House may have found a new home.

The ABC sitcom, eyed for a revival by producers Warner Bros. Television since 2014, is nearing a deal to return on Netflix — though neither the streamer nor the studio would confirm.

Original exec producer Robert L. Boyett and series creator Jeff Franklin have been leading the charge to bring back the comedy's former stars Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) on board to star. Lead trio Bob Saget (Danny), John Stamos (Jesse) and Dave Coulier (Joey) are being eyed to appear in some guest capacity.

The Full House cast, still chummy 20 years after the series ended, often have been vocal about wanting to return to the comedy in some capacity. Stamos last year told Watch What Happens Live that he was "working on a twist on a sequel," but noted that it was unclear at the time if it would come to pass. The three leading men reunited last on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and, in 2013, Stamos reunited with his fictional Full House band, Jesse & the Rippers, to play a medley of its hits with Saget in the audience.

A future for Full House would be just the latest in a long string of revivals popping up across the TV landscape. Fox recently ordered a six-episode event series for The X Files, and just last week, NBC announced a straight-to-series order for a Coach revival starring Craig T. Nelson.

TVLine first reported the news.
