One of the most popular television franchises owned by Netflix is receiving its final season this year. Fuller House Season 5 will be the last time that fans of the series can see their favourite family engage with each other in San Francisco. The show began in 2016 with Andrea Barber, Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweet reprising their roles. The adult versions of their characters from 20 years ago centred around DJ Tanner being a widowed mother to three children. Barber and Stephanie help DJ Tanner with raising their children, with the occasional visit from their ageing uncles.
The original stars of this show weren’t series regulars. This didn’t mean that John Stamos, Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin and Dave Coulier didn’t portray older versions of their characters on Fuller House. They all have made multiple appearances on the first four seasons of Netflix-Owned show. However, a recent scandal facing Lori Loughlin with the Varsity Blues College Admission Scandal caused her to be fired from the series. Subsequently, her character won’t reappear on the show for its final season. Bure has been vocal about the show’s decision, expressing her disbelief. For now, Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky are getting a divorce, and she will be moving far away.
There has been a considerable backlash towards Netflix for their decision to terminate Lori Loughlin, but this hasn’t stopped the streaming service from announcing that the first half of Fuller House will be released earlier than expected. Fans of the show can witness Uncle Jesse’s and his families adventures again on December 6th, 2019. The 5th season begins with some unanswered questions, such as the name of Stephanie’s surrogate baby. The show ended without releasing a fair amount of vital information, which inevitably gives fans something exciting to look forward to on the 6th.
Television news outlets have also reported that most of the original series cast members will be returning for the 5th and final season of Fuller House. This will include Bob Saget as Danny Tanner, John Stamos as Uncle Jesse and David Coulier as Joey Gladstone. The show finished filming their final episode on November 15th, which was said to be one of the most emotional moments in television history, both for fans and cast. It should be noted that these individuals have played these characters for three decades and that it will be highly unlikely another sequel series will be picked up. As such, this is indeed the end of Full House.
