It would appear that the news for John Stamos isn’t all bad this month, as Fox on Wednesday announced a full season order for his new sitcom, “Grandfathered.”
This is the third of Fox’s fall offerings to get picked up for a full season, joining police procedural “Rosewood” and the Rob Lowe and Fred Savage comedy “The Grinder.” With Ryan Murphy’s “Scream Queens” already set with a 15-episode first season order, that leaves only “Minority Report” waiting for a back season order.
David Madden, Fox Entertainment president, said in a statement about the series: “‘Grandfathered’ had the Herculean task of self-starting on what is an incredibly competitive Tuesday night, and the series has proven itself up to the challenge.”
“Grandfathered” features Stamos playing a lifelong bachelor and restaurateur who finds out late in life that he has, not only a son (Josh Peck), but a granddaughter, and focuses on the growing pains involved in adapting to a newfound family. The series also stars Paget Brewster and Christina Milian. The full season pickup means that Season One will entail 22 episodes.
