John Stamos’ ‘Grandfathered’ Gets Full-Season Order From Fox

Freshman half-hour sitcom also stars Josh Peck

Fox has ordered nine additional episodes of freshman sitcom “Grandfathered,” bringing it to a full 22-episode first season, the network announced Wednesday.

“Grandfathered” stars John Stamos and Josh Peck.

“‘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,” said Fox Entertainment Group president David Madden in a statement. “Since the very beginning we knew this show would be that rare commodity — a genuinely original family comedy. The remarkable John Stamos, Josh Peck, Paget Brewster, and the entire cast have sparkling chemistry, and the show’s creative team has delivered fantastic scripts that keep these great characters moving. We know fans are going to love the surprises in store for the rest of the season.”

The show is produced by ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Daniel Chun. It is executive-produced by Chun, Dan Fogelman and Stamos. Chris Koch serves as director and executive producer.

“Grandfathered” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
