Remember a simpler time when Danny Tanner, Uncle Jesse, Joey, D.J., Stephanie, and of course the adorable Michelle Tanner, graced our television sets from 1987 to 1995 ruled your television on the hit show, "Full House?" They're Baaacckk! Welcome to "Fuller House," announced by none other than Uncle Jesse himself, John Stamos, as an update of the original series, that will stream exclusively on Netflix. The series will star Candace Cameron-Bure, as her character DJ Tanner, all grown up, and going thru a divorce. Her sister Stephanie, played by Jodie Sweetin, and best friend Kimmy Gibler, played by Andrea Barber, will move in to support and get her back on her feet. Stamos, is calling around and seeing how many of the original cast he can get to come on as semi-regulars or cameos.
I'm not sure if John Stamos has reached out yet, but it's time to get Blake McIver, who portrayed one of lil' Michelle's best friend, Derek. A performer from the beginning, from "Junior Star Search," to "Full House," to the movie version of "The Little Rascals," and now a Bravo tv star with his friends Emerson Collins and Scott Nevins, on "The Peoples Couch." Yes friends, I am petitioning to BRING BACK DEREK! A success story in going from child-actor to adult, much like his co-stars Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, Blake is still performing, with original songs, his own album, and standing up for the LGBT Community. The show is going to need a good-looking, capable actor on the new show, and Blake covers all of that, PLUS brings a common history and place in the original show. It could also add a lot of diversity and bring a diverse audience to the show, by letting Blake play his authentic self as a proud part of the LGBT Community.
I hope you will help me BRING BACK DEREK to this new Netflix production, and sign this petition that we can bring to John Stamos and the producers of this reboot.
To John Stamos and Producers of "Fuller House":
Thank you for your time and please take into consideration of casting one of the original "Full House" cast members, Blake McIver, who played Derek, into your new show, "Fuller House." His good looks, great acting ability, and experience, would be a great addition to the currently released details of the current female cast. It would also be great to feature diversity in the new show, by letting Blake be part of his real-life identification as part of the LGBT community.
