Well, it will be a Merry Christmas for the Tanner clan. Netflix has announced that their Fuller House TV series, the sequel to the 1990s sitcom Full House, has been renewed for a third season. The news was released via Twitter earlier today.
On Fuller House, veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) has recently been widowed and is living in San Francisco in her familiar childhood home. Her younger sister, musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), and D.J.’s longtime best friend, Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), move in to help take care of D.J.’s three sons. They are 13-year-old Jackson (Michael Campion), seven-year-old Max (Elias Harger), and newborn Tommy Jr. (Dashiell & Fox Messitt). Jackson has a crush on Kimmy’s teenage daughter, Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas).
Other season two regulars include Juan Pablo Di Pace, Scott Weinger, John Brotherton, and Ashley Liao. Original series stars John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Bob Saget, and Lori Loughlin recur.
Season two was released by Netflix on December 9th and reportedly hasn’t been nearly as popular as the first season. According to Symphony Advanced Media, the first season was Netflix’s highest rated original series but viewership fell more than 60% in early viewing. Of course, ratings don’t mean much to Netflix as long as they’re keeping subscribers.
Here’s the season three renewal announcement:
There’s no word on when season three will be released but a 2017 date seems likely.
