Well, folks, it's time we prepare our goodbyes for the Tanner family—Netflix just announced when the final episodes of Fuller House will drop. Yes, on June 2, 2020, we'll be able to stream the last nine episodes of season five, whether we're ready for them or not.
The first half of the season aired back in December 2019, and although we knew the fifth season would be the last, we're still sad to see DJ, Sephanie and the gang go. When we last saw the Tanner sisters, plus honorary Tanner sister, Kimmy Gibbler, each woman was embarking in an exciting new chapter of their lives. Surrogate Kimmy gave birth to Stephanie and Jimmy's beautiful baby Danielle Jo, aka Dani. Steve proposed to DJ and Kimmy proposed to Fernando and now there's a triple wedding in store for later this season (provided everything goes according to plan).
Almost the entire original cast will be returning for the series finale (save for the Olsen twins, who have yet to reprise their combined role as Michelle Tanner, and Lori Loughlin, aka Aunt Becky, who is still working out the legal repercussions of her college admissions scandal) as will our new favorites, Jackson, Max, Ramona and Tommy.
While Fuller House has primarily focused on brand new stories and plot lines for the younger Tanner family members, there have been some clear and purposeful nods to the original Full House series. As a reminder, the OG series ended with the family trying to help Michelle regain her memory after a horseback riding accident, complete with tons of flashbacks to beloved moments from earlier seasons, while Kimmy and DJ prepared for their senior prom and the surprise return of Steve. It's possible Fuller House will follow a similar path, with lots of time dedicated to reliving the greatest moments from the past five seasons, and maybe even the surprise return of some characters we've yet to see (it would be a hell of a time for you to make an appearance, Mary Kate and Ashley).
