'Fuller House' Ending With Season 5 on Netflix
The second chapter of the story of the extended Tanner-Fuller family is coming to a close.
Netflix has renewed the sitcom Fuller House for a fifth season — and also announced that will be the end of the line for the series.
The announcement came Thursday via a video with highlights from previous seasons and castmembers promising they have "saved the best for last."
Fuller House, a sequel to the 1987-95 ABC comedy Full House, premiered in February 2016. It follows the now grown-up lives of sisters D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) and Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and their longtime friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). After D.J.'s husband dies unexpectedly, Stephanie and Kimmy move in with her and help her raise her three sons.
Original Full House castmembers Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin all recurred on the series. Jeff Franklin created both series, though he was ousted as Fuller House's showrunner in 2018 over complaints about his behavior.
Netflix doesn't regularly release viewership figures, but third-party measurement company Symphony Advanced Media claimed the first season of Fuller House drew huge audiences. (The claims were disputed by Netflix, and Symphony discontinued its VideoPulse measurement tool in 2017.)
The final season of Fuller House is due in the fall. The video announcement is above.
