Netflix had an early holiday surprise for ‘Fuller House’ fans this weekend, the video-streaming service confirmed that the series has been picked-up for a third-season. Both of the first two-seasons are available on Netflix, and have been popular with both new, and returning, viewers.
Netflix confirmed the season-three renewal on Twitter stating, “We’re all for opening gifts early. @fullerhouse Season 3 – arriving in 2017.”
The show has been a hit on Netflix, the series is a spin-off/continuation of the 1987 hit ‘Full House’. This time around the story follows veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) who is recently widowed and living in San Francisco.
Also in the story are D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single-mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). Kimmy also has a young teenage daughter named Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas). This ragtag group all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — 12-year-old Jackson (Michael Champion), 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr (Messitt Twins).
The show had several major guests drop by in the first two seasons, including John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis) and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale).
Fuller House is from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin are the executive producers of the series, which was created by Franklin. John Stamos is a producer.
Netflix stopped short of announcing a premiere date for the third-season, only teasing fans with a 2017 release date. More information on the third-season, including possible guest-stars and a premiere date, are expected to be announced over the next few months. Fans can watch the first two-seasons again until new episodes arrive, hopefully we will see the return of the Tanners in upcoming episodes.
