Actor Dave Coulier set off a frenzy among fans when he would do another Full House revival “in a heartbeat.”

“Yeah, Fullest House, right?” he said during an appearance on the Tamaron Hall Show. “We talk all the time [about] how much we would love to do a show again. We just love working and we love our fans so much and we love the whole process.”

Another Full House revival

The series, which aired from 1987 to 1995 on ABC, has already had one revival. In 2016, Netflix debuted Fuller House, which ran for four seasons.

Both shows were recently picked up by GAC Family, a new network started by former Hallmark CEO Bill Abbott.

Candace Cameron Bure, who made headlines when she announced she would be starring in and producing material for GAC Family, has already begun promoting the shows on her Instagram.

“Oh. My. Lanta- your weeks just got FULLER!!” she wrote. “Full House AND Fuller House are now playing on @gactv.”

Missing Bob Saget

Coulier said the cast continues to grieve the loss of castmate Bob Saget, who passed away on January 9. In an interview with People magazine, he said he and the other members of the cast supported each other in the aftermath of his death.

“We pull together as a family during moments like this,” he said. “We’ve pretty much experienced everything that a real family can experience. Getting picked up, getting canceled, marriages, divorces, births, deaths. I mean, it’s pretty much what every family goes through. And we’ve stuck together through all of it.”

Full House and Fuller House

Full House premiered on September 22, 1987. It followed a widowed father (played by the late Bob Saget) of three little girls who invites his brother-in-law (John Stamos) and best friend (Dave Coulier) to move in and help him raise his daughters.

The show ran for eight seasons and launched the careers of both the adults on the series, and the children, who were played by Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.

In 2016, Netflix announced it was producing a revival of the series. Fuller House premiered on February 26, 2016. It featured Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber living in the family home and raising Bure’s three sons.

A second season premiered on December 9, 2016. Two more seasons followed, and the series finished up in 2020.


What happened on When Calls the Heart? Elizabeth celebrated her birthday with Jack and Lucas. Wyman Walden arrived back in Hope Valley. And Nathan and Mei said an emotional farewell to each other.

But the biggest surprise came at the very end of the episode. In a preview for Episode 10, Rosemary dropped a hint to Elizabeth that she might be pregnant!

What happened on When Calls the Heart

When the episode opens, Elizabeth receives red roses as a birthday gift from Lucas. When she calls him to say thank you, she mentions that Abigail called to wish her a happy birthday. (Side note: Hallmark was pretty adamant that Lori Loughlin would NOT be returning to the show, but the fact that her character is still being mentioned is interesting.)

Fiona arrives back in town from her trip to San Francisco with bad news. She tells Lucas that Henry confronted Jerome about re-opening the mine. Jerome changed the deal, saying he would only go through with it if Lucas agreed to stay on the board for one more year. This is a problem, as Lucas already told Elizabeth that he was getting out of the oil business.

Wyman Walden shows up at the saloon and tells Lucas that he is going to buy The Queen of Hearts.

Sting operation

Lucas tells Elizabeth that he attempted to catch Wyman swindling people out of their savings (as he did to Jesse and Clara) in a sting operation. It did not go well, and that is how Lucas ended up with a black eye. Elizabeth suggests he go see Bill.

Fiona is giving Lee a haircut when Rosemary asks if she can borrow the salon to give Elizabeth a day of beauty for her birthday. Lee mentions that a man named Arthur Gilchrist of the Hearst newspaper empire is coming to town to talk about The Valley Voice. Fiona says Gilchrist is part of the oil company deal.

Nathan stops by the pharmacy to see Mei, but he can’t find her. Dr. Carter arrives a few minutes later and finds Mei hiding in the back. She has to go back to Chicago, and she doesn’t know how to tell Nathan.

When Bill finds out that Wyman is back in town, he decides to let the sale of the Queen of Hearts go ahead in an attempt to keep the coal mine closed. He also wants to lure Wyman’s henchman to town as he knows the man is wanted for murder. He tells Wyman that he will help him with the deal if Wyman helps Bill become mayor.

Goodbye (for now)

Nathan finds Mei at the saloon getting ready to leave town. She tells him that Jeffrey is pursuing charges against her in Chicago. He offers to come with her.

“You have no idea what that means to me,” she tells him.

She says that she can’t ask him to leave Allie. She tells him that she regrets not letting him catch her that day she road into town. Nathan holds back tears as he says goodbye.

Molly and Florence are chatting. Molly says she thinks Faith has feelings for Nathan.

At the café, Joseph confronts Lee. He knows that Lee made a phone call so that Joseph could get his loan. He says he wishes Lee would have asked him first.

Nathan runs into Faith. They chat about Mei leaving town. He says it is probably similar to her situation with Carson. But then he changes his mind and says perhaps not, as Faith was ready to get married. Faith tells him that Carson was the one who wanted to get married, and she wasn’t ready. He is surprised. She invites him for ice cream, and he accepts.

Joseph and Cooper talk about Cooper’s decision not to go to church. Cooper explained that he “likes being his own boss.”

Closing the deal

People in town are upset with Bill because of the deal he made with Wyman. When Wyman arrives with Spurlock, Bill attempts to arrest him for murder. Spurlock shoots at Nathan and takes off in his car. Nathan goes after him on his horse and arrests him.

Bill then confronts Lucas about the deal he was trying to make with Wyman. Lucas said he was trying to catch him with a sting, but Bill cannot confirm the story. He says that Wyman stated that Lucas was working with gamblers in Louisiana and that he has the documents to prove it.


Two new Hallmark movies in production

Two new Hallmark movies are currently in the works. Crown Media announced it has started production on The Road Ahead and Two Tickets to Paradise. Both movies will air this summer.

Two new Hallmark movies: The Road Ahead

The Road Ahead stars Holly Robinson Peete as Madeline, a famous Hollywood actress, and Kaylee Bryant as Sarah, a wilderness expert. When circumstances force the women to make a cross-country trip together, they get off to a rocky start. But as they get to know each other, they discover some common ground and unexpectedly help each other face their past mistakes through support and unconditional love.

“We are very excited about this upcoming movie that celebrates the bond of female friendship.” Said Lisa Hamilton Daly, executive vice president of programming at Crown Media Family Networks. “This film showcases our breadth and depth as a brand and will bring viewers on an emotional journey. I love seeing women encourage, support and empower others, and this truly shines through in this new original.”

The Road Ahead also features actor Mark Humphrey. It will air on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries this summer.

Two Tickets to Paradise

What they don’t realize is that they have both booked trips to the same resort, and they keep running into each other in paradise. When a local woman (played by Mary-Margaret Humes) shares her wisdom with the couple, they begin to let go and enjoy their time together in Hawaii.

Ashley Williams shared a video to Instagram clip from the set of the movie that showed the cast and crew receiving a blessing from a local shaman.

“Ok secrets out. I’m shooting an epic romantic comedy in hawaii with the incomparable (and may I say easy on the eyes?) @ryanpaevey. Hawaiian tradition says that this creative venture begins with a blessing. Of us. Of the crew, the cast, the entire creative team,” she wrote. “…We rubbed 30 year old rain water on our hands and touched each other’s hands to show our respect and eagerness to connect and take care of each other on this project. How in the world did I get so lucky? Thank you to Oahu and island films for taking such beautiful care of us.”

Two Tickets to Paradise will air during Hallmark Channel’s Summer Nights movie event.


Fans have mixed reactions to news that Candace Cameron Bure leaving Hallmark Channel

By now, most fans have heard about Candace Cameron Bure leaving Hallmark Channel to work with GAC Family. The Full House actress made the announcement on Instagram last week.

“Excited to join the @gactv and @gacliving family!” she wrote in the caption.

The actress, who has starred in more than two dozen movies for Crown Media Family Networks, received support from other actors who have signed deals with GAC Family.

“Yayayay!!!! Welcome to the family, my friend!!” Danica McKellar wrote in the comments.

But among fans, the reactions were mixed.

Some fans thrilled that Candace Cameron Bure now working for GAC Family

“I’m so excited for you and for GAC family,” one wrote on Bure’s Facebook page. “Can’t wait to see what you and Mr. Abbot will create together. Crossing my fingers in hopes of seeing some mysteries on this channel too. Oh! And bring back the home and family show. God Bless and enjoy this new adventure.”

Another fan comments on Bure's Facebook page

Some fans upset that Candace Cameron Bure leaving Hallmark Channel

Most fans who have objected to Bure’s departure say the issue is straightforward: they don’t have access to GAC Family.

Though the new network is included in some basic cable packages — you can check yours here — in others, it can cost extra. It’s also available on several streaming platforms, but some fans they can’t afford to pay.

“I’m on disability and a fixed income and can’t afford to have a bunch of extra channels,” one wrote on social media. “I hate that so many have abandoned ship at Hallmark. Will miss seeing them.”

A fan comments on Candace Cameron Bure's move to GAC Family

Fans in Canada say they can’t even get GAC Family.

“This makes me a little sad because GAC Media isn’t currently available in Canada!” one wrote. “Neither is Hallmark but I could at least watch your movies on WNetwork through StackTV.”

What is GAC Family?

GAC Family is one of two networks launched by former Crown Media CEO Bill Abbott. Abbott left Crown Media — which produces content for Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama — in early 2020.

In June of 2021, he announced that his new company, GAC Media, had purchased two cable networks. Programming on GAC Family and GAC Living began in September. In addition to old episodes of family-friendly shows such as Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and Father Knows Best, GAC Family released 12 original movies for the holiday season in 2022.

Other Hallmark stars such as Jen Lilley, Jessica Lowndes, and Danica McKellar have also signed contracts to work with GAC Media. Holly Robinson Peete, Brennan Elliott, and Lacey Chabert have signed contracts to continue to work for Crown Media.


What happened on When Calls the Heart: Season 9, Episode 8

What happened on Hallmark Channel’s When Calls the Heart in Season 9, Episode 8 — Hope Valley Days Part Two:

When the episode opens, Nathan runs into Jeffrey on the street. Jeffrey says he wants to talk to Ned and Florence about running the pharmacy with Mei.

Elizabeth overhears the news that Jeffrey is Mei’s husband. She runs to the saloon to tell Lucas, but he already knows. She is disappointed that he didn’t share the news with her sooner.

When Nathan asks Mei about Jeffrey, she explains that she apprenticed with him while she was still at school. He started having feelings for her. When she made it clear she didn’t feel the same way, he told everyone they were engaged.

When Mei found out he had forged a marriage license, she left Chicago and rode to Hope Valley to take the job at the pharmacy. When Mei asks Nathan if he believes her, he says yes. However, he says, they need proof that Jeffrey lied.

What happened on When Calls the Heart: Wherefore art thou, Lee?

Lee — dressed as Romeo for Halloween — runs into Hickam and attempts to apologize for his editorial. Back at the Valley Voice, he confides in Rosemary — dressed as Juliet — that he didn’t realize the impact his opinion piece would have. Rosemary tells him that writing for a newspaper is a huge responsibility.

Jeffrey tells Nathan he wants Mei arrested.

Lucas runs into two schoolteachers at the town bulletin board who are looking for textbooks. He tells them that he knows someone who can help them. At the schoolhouse, he offers to teach Elizbaeth’s class so she can talk to the other teachers.

At the café, Minnie, Joseph, and Bill celebrate their new business partnership. Bill begins coughing hard and steps outside. When he sees blood on his handkerchief, he goes to see Dr. Carter.

The doctor tells him he needs to go to Union City to get tested for pneumonia. As Bill rests, she runs over to the pharmacy for supplies. While she is there, Nathan arrests Mei. Faith follows them to the jail, where she sits with Mei. Faith tells Mei she feels like all this is her fault.

A call from Chicago

Back at the infirmary, Molly discovers that Bill has a bruise on his side. He says it must be from his fight with Jeffrey. Dr. Carter gives him some cough medicine and tells him to rest.

Bill decides to rest in Nathan’s office. He drinks all of the cough medicine and starts telling Mei about how his wife followed him to Hope Valley. Nathan arrives just in time to answer a phone call from Chief Inspector Hargreaves. Mei is to be returned to Chicago for prosecution.

When Elizabeth arrives at the café to help prepare Thanksgiving dinner, she finds out that Minnie has agreed to let Emma stay on in her job and rent a room upstairs.

At the Valley Voice, Lee writes a positive opinion piece about Hickam.

Burden of proof

Jeffrey arrives at the jail, where Nathan is just releasing Mei. Jeffrey wants Mei to return to Chicago with him. Nathan tells Jeffrey that Mei won’t be prosecuted, as he has found out that Jeffrey is already married. When Jeffrey leaves, Mei gives Nathan a hug.

The town gathers for a church service to celebrate the end of Hope Valley Days. When the service is finished, everyone steps out and finds a Christmas tree in the middle of the town. No one can figure out where it came from.

It turns out Bill set it up while everyone else was in church as an April Fools’ prank.

At the saloon, everyone shares a Thanksgiving dinner. Lee and Rosemary take pictures of everyone. When Allie and Nathan pose for their photo, Allie pulls Mei in with them.



What is GAC Family?

Hallmark star Candace Cameron Bure made headlines when she announced she was leaving the network to work with GAC Family. The actress has signed a contract to produce and star in content for the network, which is run by former Crown Media CEO Bill Abbott.

While the move had lots of people talking, some had only one question: What is GAC Family, anyway?

GAC Family was launched in June 2021 by Abbott, who had previously led programming at Hallmark Channel’s parent company, Crown Media. In a deal Bloomberg valued at $90 million, Abbott worked with Dallas-based Hicks Equity Partners to buy two cable networks.

The networks, GAC Family and GAC Living, began airing content in September 2021. GAC Family premiered a slew of original movies in time for the holidays and is already working on more for the 2022 holiday season.

Who else is working with GAC Family?

Candace Cameron Bure joined Hallmark veterans Danica McKellar, Jessica Lowndes, and Jen Lilley in signing an exclusive contract with the network. Other Hallmark stars have also made movies for GAC Family, including Trevor Donovan, Brendan Fehr, Jennie Garth, Maggie Lawson, Sarah Lind, Daniel Lissing, M Chad Michael Murray, Sam Page, Merritt Patterson, Becca Tobin, Jill Wagner, and Dewshane Williams.

Too much of today's TV content is salacious, says Bill Abbott, former CEO of Crown Media

Who is Bill Abbott?

A native of Long Island, Abbott started his career in advertising after earning a bachelor’s degree in English literature from the College of the Holy Cross. He quickly became interested in television ratings and programming and moved on to work as a manager representing television stations around the country.

“I learned so much about what works, what doesn’t, what programming resonates,” he said in an appearance on the Up Next with John Contratti podcast.

He spent 20 years at Crown Media producing original content for Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama. He left the network in early 2020.

On Contratti’s podcast, Abbott said that a quantity over quality mentality had taken hold at too many networks. His plan with GAC Media is to provide family-friendly content for viewers.

“There’s so much need for family content in the market and in this space,” he said. “You know, it’s pretty scary, quite frankly, the amount of content that’s out there…the vast majority of content that’s salacious and just is not appropriate for any member of the family.”

What’s on GAC Family and GAC Living?

In addition to movies, GAC Family has been showing reruns of I Dream of Jeannie, Full House, Fuller House, Who’s the Boss, and Bewitched.

GAC Living has been airing episodes of Hazel, Father Knows Best, Aloha Builds, First Time Flippers, Going RV, Growing Up Gator, Seaside Snacks and Shacks, Kimberly’s Southern Kitchen, Southern Fried Everything, Mountain Mamas, and Tiny House, Big Living.

Candace Cameron Bure is moving to GAC Family

Candace Cameron Bure is moving to GAC Family. The Hallmark veteran will produce and star in content for the new network, which was started by former Crown Media CEO Bill Abbott in 2021.

“I’m very excited to develop heartwarming family and faith-filled programming and make the kind of stories my family and I love to watch,” Bure said in a statement through the network.

Bure joins other Hallmark favorites Danica McKellar and Jen Lilley, who have signed exclusive contracts to produce and star in content for the network, which began programing in September.

I am truly honored that she has chosen to be a part of and help curate her special brand of family entertainment here at Great American Channels.”

Hallmark vs. GAC

Hallmark has been signing deals left and right with its actors. Lacey Chabert, Brennan Elliott, and Holly Robinson Peete are among the stars who have agreed to work exclusively with Crown Media in the coming years.

But many of its actors have already started working with GAC Family. Trevor Donovan, Brendan Fehr, Jennie Garth, Maggie Lawson, Sarah Lind, Daniel Lissing, M Chad Michael Murray, Sam Page, Merritt Patterson, Becca Tobin, Jill Wagner, and Dewshane Williams have appeared in movies with the new network.

Aurora Teagarden

The former star of Full House has appeared in more than two dozen movies for Hallmark. Her latest, Aurora Teagarden: Haunted By Murder, premiered on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries in February.

In addition to starring new content for GAC Family, Bure’s Candy Rock Entertainment production company will oversee and curate programming from GAC and create year-round seasonal celebration content.

“I am constantly looking for ways that I can inspire people to live life with purpose,” Bure said. “GAC fits my brand perfectly; we share a vision of creating compelling wholesome content for an audience who wants to watch programming for and with the whole family. Great, quality entertainment with a positive message is what my partnership with GAC is all about!”


What happened on When Calls the Heart: A recap of Season 9, Episode 7

What happened on When Calls the Heart this week:

In Season 9, Episode 7, Hope Valley Days Part One, Mei Suo’s husband came to town; Lucas dropped major hints to Elizabeth that he’s ready to pop the question, and Hickam began to exercise his authority as mayor.

When the episode starts, the townspeople have gathered to hear an announcement from Mayor Hickam. In an effort to get the town back to its hopeful, joyous roots, he is initiating a new festival. During Hope Valley Days, the town would celebrate Thanksgiving with Elizabeth, Hannukah with Ned and Florence, Halloween with Lee and Rosemary, and Valentine’s Day with new town council member Mei Suo. He then jokes that Bill will be in charge of celebrating April Fool’s Day.

At the newspaper office, Lee and Rosemary are dressed as Antony and Cleopatra and have candy ready for the children when they come trick-or-treating. Rosemary is excited to see they have received a letter from someone who works for newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst.

Andrea stops by the pharmacy. Mei Suo has hung red decorations for Qixi, a Chinese celebration of love. Nathan rides by outside, and Mei looks at him wistfully.

Mei Suo’s husband

A man comes storming into Bill’s office, saying he wants his wife arrested. Bill tells him to come back when he can behave with more civility. The man refuses to leave. Bill knocks him out and takes him down to the jail in a wheelbarrow.

Nathan makes a phone call and finds out that the man is named Jeffrey. There are no warrants for his arrest, but there are three for Mei Suo. One is for larceny, one for forgery, and one for spousal abandonment.

Lucas stops by the schoolhouse to walk Elizabeth home. He tells her that when he was growing up, all he ever wanted was to live in a town where “my family could get to know everyone and everyone could get to know us.”

Joseph and Minnie

At the cafe, Minnie tells Elizabeth that she and Joseph are applying for a loan to buy out Abigail’s portion of the cafe.

At the pharmacy, Ned and Florence offer Mei her job on a permanent basis. Her joy is cut short when Bill and Nathan confront her over the warrants for her arrest.

Bill goes to the infirmary. Dr. Carter says she thinks he has pneumonia. She wants to send him to the city for an X-ray.

The driving lesson

Nathan asks Elizabeth for a driving lesson. They climb in the car, and she immediately begins explaining how the vehicle works, but Nathan is more interested in pushing all the buttons. Finally, he climbs out and says he will ask Lucas for a lesson instead.

“Maybe it was a good thing that you and I never got together,” he says, grinning. Um, ouch.

Joseph and Minnie pray together before leaving for Buxton to apply for their loan. Joseph tells Minnie they need to be careful about getting their hopes up. Her family may have been well respected in St. Louis, but in some places, there is still a lot of prejudice.

The Hannukah celebration during Hope Valley Days

Bill tells Mei he saw a marriage license with Mei’s signature. She insists it was forged. He says he has no choice but to release Jeffrey.

As soon as he is out of jail, Jeffrey chases after Mei and begs her to return with him to Chicago. She refuses.

Joseph stops by Lee’s office to drop off the keys to his car. He says he and Minnie did not get a loan. Lee is furious. He tells Rosemary he is going to back the loan himself. Rosemary suggests he talk to Joseph first, but Lee goes ahead and calls his bank.

Nathan and Lucas

Nathan asks Lucas for a driving lesson. He starts talking about Mei and says he doesn’t understand why she never brought up the situation with Jeffrey. Lucas tells him that she probably had a good reason.

Ned leads a Hannukah celebration at the saloon. Joseph tells Lee that the bank reversed its decision on the loan. Lee pretends to be surprised.

At a bonfire in the middle of town, Lucas asks Elizbaeth if she has ever considered a fall wedding. She asks if he has ever considered a spring wedding.

While we doubt there will be a wedding this season, there may very well be a proposal. The question is, will it top Jack’s epic, candlelit setup from Season 4?


The Hallmark Channel movie Love, Classified stars Melora Hardin from The Office

The Hallmark Channel movie Love, Classified will premiere as part of the network’s Spring Into Love event. Starring actress Melora Hardin, the film follows the lives of people who are connected by a dating app.

As Emilia tries to reconnect, Taylor and Zach explore new and past relationships through an app that boasts old-fashioned human connection by way of the classified ad. Zach is given a chance to heal old wounds while Taylor matches with Franki (Arienne Mandi), a woman that changes the way she’s always thought about love.”

Hardin teased the premiere in a post on Instagram.

“Can’t wait for everyone to see this! “ she wrote.

About the movie
