    It's been too long. If a report from TV Guide is true, "Full House," the iconic family sitcom set in San Francisco, might be coming back – and what's more: It might even star some of the original cast.

    The show – which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995 – is still a huge ratings boon, thanks to reruns, and Warner Brothers wants to make the most of it, TV Guide reports. Actor John Stamos, "Uncle Jesse," is one of the main forces behind the revival, along with original executive producer Bob Boyett and creator Jeff Franklin, according to TV Guide.

    Other names "actively involved" include Candace Cameron Bure ("D.J."), Jodie Sweetin ("Stephanie") and Andrea Barber ("Kimmy"), while Bob Saget ("Danny") and Dave Coulier ("Joey") are involved, albeit to a lesser extent, the report said.

    The show's stars have hinted in the past they would like to see it return, and have appeared on other TV shows and commercials, often together.

    In 2009, there was talk about a "Full House" movie. Right now, repeats are bringing in a primetime average of 1.5 million viewers, and some of its most loyal fans are teenagers, the TV Guide report said. Although it regularly made the Top 25 list when it originally aired, ABC canceled the show in 1995 because it became too expensive. Although, the cast reportedly offered to take a paycut, things didn't work out.

    Full House fans took to Twitter immediately to weigh in on the latest rumors. Some called it "the best news ever" while others offered ideas.

    "The full house reboot is gonna be me and @mmongkoll and @PierreMenard in a house in SF with a weight set in the living room and some dogs," one viewer commented.

    Dave Coulier took to Twitter as well: "Full House is trending? #cutitout," the actor tweeted.
