That's a wrap for the Tanners and the Fullers, as the final episodes of Fuller House are now streaming on Netflix. Running five seasons in total, the first half of the fifth and final season of Fuller House premiered on Netflix last year, leading to a wait for fans to see how the series would ultimately conclude. The remaining batch of episodes has now been released on the streaming service, so those who've been patiently waiting to see how things will come to an end for D.J. and the others won't have to wait another second.
Serving as a follow-up series to Full House, Fuller House was set in the same familiar San Francisco household where the Tanner family resided in the original show. This time, D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) moves in when she is left widowed, leading to her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) to join her to help raise her three boys. Sound familiar? The final season of Fuller House specifically focused on bringing some closure to the Tanners and the Fullers, bowing out with a triple wedding for the three lead characters with most of our other fan favorites returning.
Although there are no surprises here, the debut of the show's final episodes also confirms Bure's claims that the Olsen Twins would not be appearing in the last season for a special cameo as Michelle. That seemed to have been solidified pretty early on in the show's life, though some fans had been holding out hope for a Michelle appearance in season five. For better or for worse, Michelle does not appear in the new episodes of Fuller House, though the character is referenced. After Kimmy asks D.J. when Michelle was going to pick up her bike, D.J. quipped: "If she hasn't come for it by now, she's not coming."
All in all, a five season run on Netflix can be considered a very successful run, as the streaming service is known for giving popular shows the boot unexpectedly. Before its premiere, many may have thought the odds of a Full House sequel series succeeding would have been a long shot, underestimating the fond nostalgia many fans had for the classic sitcom. Younger audiences responded very well to the new characters as well, turning Fuller House into a big hit with children and teenage viewers. Maybe that unique kind of Full House-style wholesome programming was just something that was needed in the modern era.
In any case, there's not going to be any more Fuller House after today, but the series will always remain on Netflix to be watched for those yet to catch up on the Full House spin-off. If the show maintains a following in the years to come, as did its predecessor, then you never know - we just might see another sequel series happen someday, with D.J.'s adult children taking over that legendary Victorian home.
