Netflix’s Fuller House may never bring Michelle back to the fold, but another ‘90s TV icon could be waiting in the wings. A curious reference from the Season 3 finale brings Family Matters’ Steve Urkel back into play, and producers have actually discussed bringing the famed character to San Francisco for a visit.
Netflix’s Fuller House returned somewhat quietly over the weekend, especially as Season 3 marked the original Full House’s 30th anniversary. The series is known for celebrating its sitcom past, but if thirty years couldn’t attract either Olsen back to their humble beginnings, producers confirm they’ve given up Michelle’s ghost.
The recent rash of Netflix cancellations has produced one oddly-harmonious refrain in the comments: “Cancel Fuller House instead!” Well, apologies. Not only are the Tanners and Fullers officially returning for Season 3 in September, but they’re celebrating a major milestone in the process.
The first season of Netflix Full House revival Fuller House proved a major hit for the streaming service, and even if Season 2 couldn’t quite match its success, the Tanners will give it a third shot regardless. The series has officially been renewed for Season 3, arriving in 2017.
As if the world’s Full House fan(s) weren’t already scouring the internet for every item of gossip on who will or won’t return for Netflix’s Fuller House, Lifetime has officially withheld its mercy on us. Behold, the cast of the upcoming Unauthorized ‘Full House’ Story, and nary a felt woodchuck among them.
Netflix’s Fuller House may not not have Michelle or either Olsen twin (or our respect, anticipation, interest ... ), but two mainstays of the Tanner household will indeed drop by Kimmy and D.J.’s new digs. Not only will Aunt Becky join Uncle Jessie at the Fuller House, but so too will Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner.
On the heels of Netflix’s plan to revive classic sitcom Full House with, uh, Fuller House, comes news that Lifetime would also like to cash-in on your nostalgia with an unauthorized Full House movie. Similar to last year’s underwhelming The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, the new project will take you behind the scenes of the sitcom to tell you all those sordid stories about Comet the Dog that you’ve been dying to hear.
All the Tanners and Gibblers will look up and shout “Have mercy!” And Netflix will look down and whisper “You got it, dude.” That’s right, friends. The Full House has officially become a Fuller House, and Netflix will return San Francisco’s favorite sitcom family for 13 episodes with D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy Gibbler at the center.
24: Live Another Day certainly kicked down the door, while Coach was apparently already living inside, and now it seems we have a Full House. Oh yes, we’ve got it, dude, the long-awaited Netflix Full House reunion series we never knew we never wanted. Prepare for … Fuller House!
