Get Ready to Say Goodbye to the Tanners…Again

The Tanners are breaking our hearts for the second time.

Today, Netflix announced that Fuller House has been renewed for a fifth but final season, and in the words of Michelle Tanner, how rude!

The streaming platform dropped a video announcement today reliving some of the special moments the Tanner family has enjoyed over the last several seasons. Now, sadly, it’s all coming to an end.

In the video montage, which includes Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey), Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky), Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner-Fuller) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), the cast assures us they’re “saving the best for last” and sends lots of love.

The original incarnation of the hit family sitcom Full House ran for eight seasons on ABC from 1987 to 1995, and Netflix launched a reboot titled Fuller House in 2016, which included much of the original cast. (Sadly, not Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.)

But while saying farewell to the Tanners will be bittersweet, at least the final season isn’t too far away. As the video announcement revealed, the series will return to the ’Flix this fall. And although the clip didn’t share how many episodes we can expect before officially saying goodbye, Loughlin shared the video on Instagram and wrote there will be “18 new episodes.”

Previous seasons have included only 13 episodes, so it’s definitely a step up. Maybe they are really “saving the best for last.”

Either way, have mercy on us, Netflix.
