Season 3 of the Netflix original series Fuller House will premiere on Full House's 30th anniversary. The American sitcom is a sequel to the 1987 to 1995 hit television series Full House that stars original returning cast members Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Scott Weinger, John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier, Bob Saget and new members Michael Campion, Elias Harger, Soni Nicole Bringas, Juan Pablo Di Pace, Ashley Liao and Adam Hagenbuch returning the central San Francisco home viewers fell in love with years ago.
The first season of the series has recieved mostly negative reviews with a low Rotten Tomatoes score of 32 percent, citing that the season strayed away from the original source material with little to offer with some parents complaining that the reboot was not as family friendly as the original series with the addition of more adult content and references to sex and drugs. Things were a bit brighter for the stronger second season of the series, which aired in December, with better reviews and a renewal for a third season which was expanded from 13 to 18 episodes in January.
Now, it's been announced that the third season of Fuller House will be paying homage to the original Full House series by premiering Friday, September 22, 2017 on Netflix, the 30th anniversary of the first Full House episode 'Our Very First Show' which aired on September 22, 1987. The episode took place three months after a car accident kills Danny Tanner's (Bob Saget) wife Pam causing Danny to recruit his brother-in-law Jessie Cochran (John Stamos) and his best-friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) to help raise is three daughters 10-year old D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), 5-year old Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and baby Michelle (Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, who have not returned to the reboot).
It has also been announced that the third season of Fuller House will be broken up into two parts with the first nine episodes launching on Friday, September 22 launching he second 9 episodes set to air sometime in December.
With Fuller House deemed as a success for Netflix, it's no surprise that the series has expanded to five more episodes after last season brought in more positive reviews than the first. It's also a smart derision for the streaming service to align the premiere of the third season with the 30th anniversary of it's popular and loved predecessor since the Tanner family will be on the minds of fans of both series that day.
