Jodie Sweetin Not Sold on Another ‘Full House’ Reboot After Bob Saget’s Death

Bob Saget’s death sent shockwaves around the world in 2022. Jodie Sweetin, best remembered for playing Stephanie Tanner in the beloved sitcom Full House, isn’t sure she’s ready to revive her iconic role in another reboot after Saget’s death.

“I would always leave that door open [to do another Full House spinoff]. But I will say that I think now without Bob … that’s been on all of our minds. Would it ever be the same without Danny Tanner?” Sweeting told Hollywood Life.

“I will never say that I would never play Stephanie again. The door is always open. As we say, to playing Stephanie,” she continued. “She’s a character that I know so well. Sometimes — I don’t know if she was influenced by me or me by her — I’m not sure. We’ll see. But I will never say that I wouldn’t play Stephanie [again].”

‘Full House’ Was an Early 90s Television Staple

Full House was a super popular sitcom that originally aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995. The show was created by Jeff Franklin and centered around a widowed father — Danny Tanner — who enlists his brother-in-law and best friend to help raise his three daughters.

The series starred actors such as Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen.

Full House gained a large and dedicated fanbase during its original run and achieved considerable success in terms of viewership. It became one of the most popular family-oriented sitcoms of its time. The show’s success continued even in syndication — allowing it to reach new audiences and maintain its popularity for years after its original broadcast.

The combination of humor, family values, and memorable characters contributed to Full House’s appeal. A spinoff titled Fuller House aired from 2016 to 2020 on the streaming service Netflix.
