John Stamos is hoping to play Uncle Jesse for many years to come, as he’s pitching an idea for a “Full House” prequel, according to E!.
The 55-year-old rose to fame starring as Jesse Katsopolis for eight seasons on the ABC series, before reprising the role on the Netflix reboot “Fuller House” in 2016.
But with “Fuller House” set to end its run with the upcoming fifth and final season, Stamos is hoping to keep the franchise going.
“I don’t think it’s done,” he told the news outlet. “I think there’s a play that we go backward, like what happened before?”
Stamos wants to show viewers what Jesse was like before he came to live with his brother-in-law Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) – and Danny’s best friend Joey (David Coulier) – to help raise his three nieces D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen).
“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, so I’d like to explore that,” Stamos added. “The brother/sister, maybe go back. We’ll see.”
