Netflix Renews ‘Fuller House’ for a Fifth and Final Season
Get ready to say goodbye to the Tanner family (again). Netflix announced on Thursday, January 31, that it had renewed Fuller House for a fifth and final season, to premiere later this year.
The streaming service broke the news to fans in a video covering the series’ four seasons so far. “Hola fannerinos!” the announcement begins. “It has been an amazing few years of family, laughter, love.”
The video then cuts to a montage of footage from past episodes, showing some of the funniest and most heartwarming moments between DJ (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), Kimmy (Andrea Barber), and their families. “The farewell season of Fuller House is coming,” a title card reads, as individual selfie clips from several cast members pop up on screen. “We love you! We saved the best for last.”
The video didn’t offer any further details as to how the series will wrap up, but we have to assume this final season will be a doozy.
The Full House reboot premiered in 2016, reuniting Bure, Sweetin, and Barber as grown-up versions of the characters they played when they were kids. The series also featured original Full House cast members Scott Weinger, Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier, and John Stamos, as well as newcomers Juan Pablo Di Pace, Adam Hagenbuch, John Brotherton, Michael Campion, Elias Harger, and Soni Bringas.
Bure opened up to E! News last November about playing her Fuller House character, telling the outlet, “Oh my goodness, I would play DJ Tanner for the rest of my life. If the audience wanted it and the networks wanted it, I would do it forever. I love her. I love our Fuller House family, and we really are family off screen. The more I get to be with them every day, whether it’s working or just in everyday life friendship, it’s just incredible, so keep watching!”
The actress also took to Twitter on Thursday to send a message to fans, writing, “We love our fans! Thank you so so much for your support over the years.”
You can watch the first four seasons of Fuller House on Netflix. The farewell season will debut sometime this fall.
