FULLER HOUSE has been renewed for a fourth season, Netflix announced Monday.
The Full House sequel series will return for new episodes in 2018, after Season 3 aired in two installments on the streaming platform in 2017.
Four seasons would make the sitcom one of the most successful reboot attempts in recent years, and Season 4 should continue to pound even harder on the nostalgia factor for fans as Season 3 left off with all the “adults” on the original series – Danny (Bob Saget), Joey (Dave Coulier), Jesse (John Stamos) and Rebecca (Lori Loughlin) – all moving back to San Francisco.
In previous seasons, the older generation popped in and out, but executive producer Jeff Franklin revealed a desire to see them more regularly going forward.
“It got to be really repetitive for me every time the dads or Becky would show up. We’ve had to bring them in with suitcases and reasons for them being there and it got to be the same thing over and over,” the EP told TVLine earlier. “I’m looking forward to them just being in town and whenever the storyline works, they can just be part of the gang again without making a big deal out of it. It’s going to feel much more normal to have them back in town. It depends on how many episodes their schedule allows and how much Netflix orders. But hopefully we’ll see more of them, not less.”
Franklin also upped the nostalgia factor by reuniting original series couples DJ and Steve, as well as Danny and Vicky, admitting Full House went in directions he did not agree with creatively after he left the show in Season 5 – and he sees the sequel series as a chance to right those wrongs.
“I left the show after Season 5 and really weird stuff started to happen after I was gone,” he said. “It wasn’t fun for me to watch the show after that, so that’s one of the nice things about having this show come back is being able to make a few things right.”
