It's been 18 years since Full House was on the air, but with a wave of '90s nostalgia reboots and fan-funded Kickstarter projects, the lovable family sitcom could be the next to make a comeback. Earlier this year, fans flew into a frenzy when posted that a series sequel was in development this spring, but it later turned out to be an April Fools joke. How rude!

"That wonderful rumor went everywhere," she said. "It's been thought about for a long time. A lot of things would have to work out for that to happen. I keep saying, never say never.  It did create great buzz so who knows?"

Bure, now 37 and a mother of three, says she'd "totally" be up for a reunion if it was put on the table, and thinks it could be of value to an entirely new audience. 

"I was 10 when I started the show," she said. "I was on it from 10 to 18 and now I have three kids, so that whole generation that grew up with me has kids. And then there is the generation that was Stephanie’s [Sweetin] age and Michelle’s [Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen] age and a lot of us are moms now so I think there is a need for that type of show and clearly a desire so who knows?"

As for D.J.'s future, Bure like to keep her character's options open. 

"Did I marry Steve, Viper, Nelson, who knows? Who did I marry? Maybe D.J. met a new guy in college," she mused of D.J.'s most memorable exes. 

The former child actress recently finished her book, Balancing It All: My Stories of Juggling Priorities and Purpose, which is available for pre-order on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble.
