Netflix’s Fuller House returned somewhat quietly over the weekend, especially as Season 3 marked the original Full House’s 30th anniversary. The series is known for celebrating its sitcom past, but if thirty years couldn’t attract either Olsen back to their humble beginnings, producers confirm they’ve given up Michelle’s ghost.
It’s increasingly difficult to remember any weeknight as a TV destination, let alone Friday. Nonetheless, Hulu will let you relive your TGIF nostalgia, adding full seasons of everything from Full House to Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper.
The recent rash of Netflix cancellations has produced one oddly-harmonious refrain in the comments: “Cancel Fuller House instead!” Well, apologies. Not only are the Tanners and Fullers officially returning for Season 3 in September, but they’re celebrating a major milestone in the process.
Nothing we’ve seen of Netflix’s Full House revival has allayed questions as to why we needed Fuller House in the first place, but Netflix isn’t about to give up on the Tanners after only one year. According to series star and executive producer John Stamos, the streaming service will renew Fuller House for “a lot” more than one season. Have mercy.
Let’s be honest: the promotional lead-in to Netflix’s Fuller House revival of Full house has not been good. There was the uber-creepy first teaser, horribly misguided dance-break, and all the ridiculous Olsen news you can handle. Now, the first official photos have arrived of the Tanner (ahem, Fuller) clan reunited, and they look … like humans occupying communal space, sure!
As if the world’s Full House fan(s) weren’t already scouring the internet for every item of gossip on who will or won’t return for Netflix’s Fuller House, Lifetime has officially withheld its mercy on us. Behold, the cast of the upcoming Unauthorized ‘Full House’ Story, and nary a felt woodchuck among them.
Netflix’s Fuller House may not not have Michelle or either Olsen twin (or our respect, anticipation, interest ... ), but two mainstays of the Tanner household will indeed drop by Kimmy and D.J.’s new digs. Not only will Aunt Becky join Uncle Jessie at the Fuller House, but so too will Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner.
