THE internet is abuzz with rumours that a new series of Full House is in the works.

The show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, allegedly told a reporter from the Newport Gazette, “Last month I was asked by ABC and [Warner Bros.] to write a new show for the Full House characters. Everyone I’ve spoken with were very open to the idea [of returning].”

There’s speculation that the show will focus on the adult lives of Stephanie and DJ Tanner, with both of the original actors (Jodie Sweetin, 31 and Candice Barker, 37) set to appear.

But don’t get too excited just yet because it appears this is actually a well-orchestrated internet hoax.

None of the cast members have spoken about the rumours and it turns out that the Newport Gazette was a newspaper that ceased publication in 1799.

Full House ran from 1987 to 1995 with the hour-long finale attracting over 24 million viewers in the US.

So it looks like there won’t be a revival any time soon. Oh well, the Olsen twins will be so disappointed.
