Studios not done with old ideas


It seems like television networks are beginning to recycle the old shows we loved.

Good or bad idea?

The “Full House” series will get a Netflix reboot called “Fuller House” next year, according to an announcement from John Stamos on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

The plot will be about D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) who is recently widowed with children. Tanner needs help, so she calls in sister Stephanie Tanner and best friend Kimmy Gibbler to move in with her.

The original show “Full House” first aired Sept. 22, 1987 and lasted eight years until its finale May 23, 1995.

The show still airs re-runs on Nickelodeon.

As a fan of “Full House” I am excited to see the buzz building on social media for “Fuller House.”

“I’m excited and nervous at the same time because I don’t want them to ruin Full House,” said Joanna Ortiz, a Delta College student.

“Boy Meets World” had its reboot “Girl Meets World.” It premiered out in June 2014 and currently airs on the Disney Channel.

Other shows have been announced to have reboots like “The Powerpuff Girls,” “Ducktales” and “Lemony Snickets’ A Series of Unfortunate Events.”

Why are networks recycling ideas?

Are they running out of ideas or do they really want to bring back once-loved shows?

It might be a little of both. Viewers want the next chapter of these television character’s lives. The last episode of “Full House” showed the Michelle Tanner character getting bucked off a horse. Tanner lost her memory from the event. The cliffhanger left a lot of unanswered questions from the series.

Whether those questions will be answered or not is yet to be seen. But viewers want to know what happened next.

And people seem to love this idea, so what’s the harm?

Whether we like or don’t like the idea of reboots, these shows will continue coming.
