John Stamos Wants Another ‘Full House’ Spin-off (& He Already Knows What It Would Look Like)

Now that Fuller House is headed for its fifth (and final) season, John Stamos is already brainstorming ideas for another potential spin-off.

In a recent interview with E! News, the 55-year-old actor discussed the popular franchise and revealed that he’s interested in doing a Full House prequel. “I don’t think it’s done either,” he said. “I think there’s a play that we go backward. Like what happened before?”

Stamos went on to say that the answer lies in the very first episode of Full House, adding, “If you remember in the pilot of the show, my sister Pam dies, and that’s why it’s the three men raising the three girls.”

Although Pam’s death was never really addressed on the show, Stamos’s mindset is better late than never. “So, I’d like to explore that—the brother/sister, maybe go back,” he continued. “We’ll see.”

Of course, it’s important to note that it’s all a fabricated dream (at least for now). To top it off, there’s a good chance that Stamos wouldn’t play his now-famous role of Uncle Jesse, since his 20s are long behind him. Nevertheless, we’ve always wondered how the character’s iconic catchphrase—“Have mercy!”—came to be.

Full House originally premiered in 1987 on ABC and ran for eight successful seasons. In addition to Stamos, it starred Bob Saget (Danny), Dave Coulier (Joey), Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (Michelle). The spin-off show, Fuller House, debuted on Netflix in 2016.

Your move, Netflix.
