John Stamos to Play Grandfather (?!) in Upcoming Fox Comedy Pilot

John Stamos on Fox Comedy

John Stamos‘ next role will find him grappling with an unexpectedly full house.

Fox has given a put pilot order (meaning, “almost guaranteed to air”) to an untitled comedy starring Stamos as a longtime bachelor whose life is turned upside down when he discovers he’s a father — and a grandfather. (Have mercy!)

Stamos will executive-produce the series alongside The Neighbors EP Dan Fogelman, with The Office scribe Danny Chun penning the script.

Also on the docket for Stamos? A leading role on ABC’s midseason drama Members Only, a guest star appearance on the network’s musical comedy Galavant and a potential Full House reboot in the works.

TVLine’s sister site Deadline was among the first to report the news.
