Aunt Becky Is In Talks To Return For Netflix’s ‘Full House’ Revival

At this point, it’s pretty safe to assume that anyone who was on the original ABC series Full House will be “interested” in returning for John Stamos’ Netflix revival. Well, except for Comet the dog, obviously (R.I.P.). Assumptions will not stop people from asking all of the actors any time they have a chance, though, so next up on the checklist is my all-time favorite Full House cast member, Lori Loughlin, who played the wonderful, charming and enchanting Aunt Becky, who somehow fell for Uncle Jesse’s BS and married him.

Promoting the second season of her Hallmark series When Calls the Heart at a very opportune time, Loughlin stopped by the Today Show and was immediately asked if she’s in on Shameless Cash Grab, I mean Fuller House, and of course she is.

“I hope so… we are in talks… (mindless babbling by the show’s hosts about a Kickstarter for a series that is already happening)… the fans all want us back, so we’re talking. We’re optimistic that it will all work out and I think it would be awesome to have all of us together, and I think that’s what the fans would like to see.”

Loughlin added that the cast felt like family during the show’s original run, and she claimed that her stomach would hurt from laughing so hard, but I’m calling shenanigans on that one. Regardless, Loughlin says she is in because it’s what the fans want, so I’d like to once again pitch an idea for what I’d like to see, in order to make this series even remotely interesting.

Years later, Becky and Jesse are divorced and the twins are living with their mom, because Jesse have mercy’d his way through endless groupies every time Jesse and the Rippers reunited to play ironic 80s parties on college pub crawls. Now broke and suffering from depression and desperation, Jesse would do anything to put his family back together, so he crawls on his hands and knees to beg Becky to take him back. Unfortunately for that loser, she’s in a serious relationship with a super cool blogger from Florida, and she only allows Jesse to move into the guest bedroom and earn low wages for house work so he can hear her passionate screams each night.

Again, just spitballing, but I’m available to expand if Netflix comes calling.
