Producers of U.S. sitcom Full House will not be shooting a sequel, despite reports suggesting its stars Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin are returning for a reboot of the popular series.

On Monday (04Nov13), multiple media outlets reported that the executive producer of the family-friendly show, Jeff Franklin, had been in talks with Warner Brothers executives about bringing back the beloved 1990s sitcom, which skyrocketed stars including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and John Stamos to fame.

According to the article, the new series would focus on the three grown-up Tanner girls, the characters played Bure, Sweetin, and the Olsens.

However, the alleged quotes from Franklin were taken from Rhode Island newspaper the Newport Gazette, a publication that has been out of commission since 1799.

The original article was published on entertainment site as part of its April Fool's Day joke earlier this year (13), and a representative for the site even took to to clear the rumour and wrote, "Someone picked that up as legit (legitimate) news? Last year, a few broadcast sites even picked up the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles April Fools post."

While a Full House reboot may not be in the making, another popular '90s sitcom, Boy Meets World, will be making a return to Tv in a new series called Girl Meets World, in which Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel reprise their roles as childhood sweethearts, now with a young daughter of their own.
