The first episode of the original “Full House” aired on Sep. 22, 1989, and thirty-years later, season 3 of “Fuller House” will premiere on the same day. Netflix confirmed the Season 3 premiere date earlier this week, while also confirming that season 3 of “Fuller House” on Netflix will be broken into two parts.

The first 9 episodes of “Fuller House” Season 3 will launch on Friday, Sep. 22, but the the next 9 episodes won’t be available until December. Netflix stopped short of announcing an exact date at this time, but at least you know the month, and you do get 18 episodes this season.

The spinoff series follows veterinarian (and recently widowed) D.J. Tanner-Fuller after she moves back to her childhood home with younger sister and aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner. The duo also live with former BFF, and now single-mother, Kimmy Gibbler. The Tanner childhood house is fuller than ever though with not only DJ’s three boys — the awkward 13-year-old Jackson, neurotic 7-year-old Max and baby Tommy Jr. — but also Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona and Kimmy’s not so estranged ex-husband Fernando all under the same roof.

Fuller House stars Candace Cameron Bure as D.J. Tanner-Fuller, Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner, Andrea Barber as Kimmy Gibbler, Juan Pablo Di Pace as Fernando, Soni Nicole Bringas as Romona, Michael Campion as Jackson, Elias Harger as Max, Dashiell and Fox Messitt Twins as Baby Tommy, Scott Weinger as Steve Hale, John Brotherton as Matt Harmon, and Ashley Liao as Lola.

Bob Boyett and Jeff Franklin serve as executive producers. Fuller House is produced by Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Fans can expect a trailer or two before the new season begins this fall, and a premiere date for the second-half of season 3 is expected to be announced over the next few months. You will have 9 new episodes of “Fuller House” to keep you busy while you wait though, which helps.
