John Stamos Members Only Canned

  • Boomtron
We can now see why John Stamos has decided to attach himself to so many shows. ABC has cancelled his series called Members Only. The drama was set to premier in January covering the lives of a country club members. He was set to be the star of the show that seemed to hold a lot of promise. Oscar nominated David O. Russell was attached until this past February, but that did not prevent the series from going further in their pre-production. No word on why they decided to drop the series now, but it has been confirmed that ABC shut the door on it.

We are sad for John, but we are glad that he did allow himself to join more than a few shows. Hopefully one of them will air so we can enjoy seeing him on the small screen again. It would also give him a chance

John Stamos Lands New Series

  • Boomtron
John Stamos is returning to the small screen on ABC. He was just announced as a new cast member in Members Only. The mid-season replacement will follow the lives of country club members in Connecticut. His character will be edge-fund billionaire husband who is married to Natalie Zea’s Mickey. The show will likely premier in 2015 and will have a total of 12 episodes planned so far. John will also be working on other shows and perhaps even a em>Full House reboot.

John is still considered as one of the more sexy actors and fans love out there. Thus this is great news to see that he can still land amazing roles. It will certainly be interesting to see how his character will be. However, I am wondering if they will make him play the less desired kind of guy than we are used to? The description for his character is certainly is odd.
