“Full House” star John Stamos is reportedly spearheading a reboot of the popular family sitcom, and has already recruited most of the cast to return.

Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the program, has been working with executives at Warner Bros. TV to bring back the beloved show, which ran from 1987 to 1995.

According to TVGuide.com, original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin are actively involved in developing a revival, with Franklin tapped to write the new version.

Reports suggest actresses Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are all on board to return, while Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are also involved in the project.

No word on whether Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who doubled up as Michelle Tanner on the show, will be a part of the reboot.

The cast has remained tight-knit since the show ended, and the program itself still earns solid ratings with nightly repeats on the Nickelodeon network.
