“Fuller House” fans will have to get ready to say goodbye (again). It was recently announced that the Netflix relaunch of the classic 1990s family sitcom “Full House” will end after its upcoming fifth season.
The show got its Netflix reboot in 2016 to much fan excitement. The upcoming (and final) season will air in fall 2019. In the trailer teasing the upcoming final season, several “Fuller House” cast members talk about saving the best for last.
In “Fuller House,” D.J. and Stephanie Tanner are now adults, and they end up living together again in their childhood home with the addition of their quirky pal Kimmy Gibbler.
The actors who played their dad, uncles and aunt all came back for the reboot, though Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen declined to participate in the new show as the youngest sister, Michelle Tanner. John Stamos, who plays Uncle Jesse, has also acted as executive producer for “Fuller House.”
Candace Cameron Bure, who plays D.J., recently shared an Instagram photo of cast members at a Netflix party, captioning it, “Ain’t no party like a Fuller House party.”
Cameron Bure shared the show’s cancellation news on Twitter and Instagram, saying, “Get ready Fannerinos! The farewell season of @fullerhouse is coming your way. We love our fans! Thank you so so much for your support over the years. We saved the best for last.”

Much of the fan response online has been that of disappointment and dismay. And some fans have launched a #HowRudeCampaign to keep “Fuller House” going beyond this upcoming fifth season. Of course, the campaign is named after one of Stephanie Tanner’s signature lines.
“I admit the news is bittersweet. We are SO happy to be coming back for a 5th season AND for 18 episodes! But so sad we have to say farewell,” Cameron Bure commented on her Instagram post about the cancellation. “We would love to do this show forever and ever but I guess it wasn’t in the cards. I am happy that we can give the fans a proper ending, however I wish we didn’t have to give one at all. We love you all and thank you for your support for over 30 years!! We love these characters as much as you do.”
The original “Full House” aired for eight years on ABC and was a hit for the network. “Fuller House” had a strong first season and lower ratings for the next three seasons.
Are you sad to see “Fuller House” come to an end?
