Fuller House season three will be returning to Netflix this fall, and while reaching a third season is reason enough for our fave nostalgia-sparking series to celebrate, it turns out that the next premiere date will mark a super special occasion for the show and its stars.

Fuller House season 3 premiere 30th anniversay of Full House

Friday, September 22 will not only see the first half of the third Fuller House season pop up on Netflix (with the second half coming sometime in December), but it also marks the 30th anniversary of the beloved original series, Full House.

That’s right — it’s been almost 30 years (!!!) since the family-focused sitcom premiered on ABC back on September 22, 1987.

Full House & Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure took to Instagram to let fans in on the big news, sharing an absolutely adorable pic of herself with the old-school cast along with the caption, “Mark your calendars for September 22nd. Not only will Full House turn 30 years old- but @fullerhouse Season 3 (part 1) will also premiere on @netflix!!!#ThrowBack #FirstNineEpisodes #Part1.”

We can’t wait to see how the show chooses to mark the special occasion when the premiere hits Netflix this fall. We’re already aware of the fact that the third season will feature plenty of summer fun, as well as somehow work Jodie Sweetin’s IRL leg injury into the script. “There’s no hiding that I can’t walk,” the actress’ told E!. “And I can only be a houseplant in so many episodes where I’m just stuck somewhere.” We’ll just have to wait to see what else unfolds as this full house keeps getting, well, fuller.

Can you believe it’s been almost 30 years since Full House first premiered? Let us know @BritandCo!
