If you never quite figured out whatever happened to predictability, the milkman, the paperboy or evening TV, you probably never will, because the reports claiming that Full House was returning to TV were actually all based on an April Fool's joke that lived on seven months later!
DisneyTreasures.comstarted the rumor after quoting an article that clearly had "April Fool's" in the headline. The false report had a faux interview with the sitcom's creator Jeff Franklin, who said he was "asked by ABC and [Warner Bros.] to write a new show for the Full House characters." The story even went as so far to say the show would revolve around D.J. and Stephanie Tanner, who would be played by actresses Candace Cameron-Bure and Jodie Sweetin who are now 37 and 31, respectively. It also added that all the stars were interested in the return of the series.
