Fuller House was nearly left empty. Creator Jeff Franklin has opened up on the sitcom’s revival journey, revealing that multiple networks rejected the show before Netflix stepped in, per CinemaBlend:
We had actually originally pitched the show to more traditional outlets. We went to ABC, we went to Nick at Nite, to the home of Full House both originally and now and figured that was probably a great fit for the show because it had such success for both ABC and Nick at Nite. We also went to TBS where it was airing and we went to some other places. We actually hadn’t thought about the streaming services. All of those places passed on the show and then one of the executives from Nickelodeon–his name is Brian Wright–moved over to Netflix and they actually called us and said, ‘We’d like to hear the pitch.’ It was really Netflix that took the lead, not me.
Fuller House is eyeing an expected third season renewal from Netflix.
