Fuller House Season 3: Renewal Status and Release Date

· Updated:

The Fuller House girls returned to Netflix for their second season on the 9th December 2016 just in time for Christmas. The second season manages to build on the solid foundation that the first season started and with the season now released, many are asking as to whether the show is getting a third season. Let’s take a look at the prospects and when it’ll likely arrive if it does get renewed.

Official renewal status (updated 26/12/2016) : The series has officially been confirmed for a third season with only 2017 being announced for the launch window.


Just with regards to the story, there wasn’t really an open-ended finale this season like we had with the first which could lead some to believe that it could be the end of the show. On the flip side there’s still quite a few remaining questions to be answered and given the characters, there’s always more they can do.

Given how popular the show is, though, we strongly think that it’s almost definitely going to be renewed by Netflix. For some of its other revivals such as Longmire we saw multiple seasons but on the flipside of that, Arrested Development which is more in the same category as Fuller House, has only had one season so far. It could be the case, given how soon we’ve had the first two seasons, the show could go on a bit of a hiatus for a while.

When are we likely to get a renewal order? The second season was ordered from Netflix a week or so after the first season dropped. It’d be the case if we followed that timeline that we’ll know about the fate of the show by the third week of December or if they delay it, we’ll probably get a renewal status change in the first few weeks of 2017.

When will season 3 of Fuller House be on Netflix?

Predicting a release date for the show is going to be hard as it hasn’t followed a predictable yearly schedule up until now. The first season released in February 2016 and the second season was released less than a year late in December  2016. Given the show’s attachment to Christmas this season, we would be surprised if we get another season next December.

It may also be the case that they’re turning out new seasons every ten months in which case, we may get the next season in October 2017 which could put an emphasis on a Halloween centred third season.

What do you guys think, will Netflix bring the Fuller House girls back for a third season?
