Fuller House’s future is secure for one final season. Season 5 will be the end of Fuller House but when will it be on Netflix, how have people reacted to the cancellation? Here’s everything we know on season 5 on Fuller House.
The Netflix reboot has been on Netflix since 2016. We’ve had several seasons since but none have released on a particularly regular schedule. The reboot sees the three girls in Full House all grown up with their own children and family issues.
Fuller House Season 5 Renewal Status
Official Renewal Status: Renewed for the final season (Last updated: 01/31/2018)
The series has been given a final season at Netflix. After months of speculation about the series cancellation, we’ve finally got it. The series will be returning for a final fifth season thanks to an announcement by the show’s social accounts.
Here’s how the cast has reacted the announcement:
Candace Cameron Bure said “Get ready Fannerinos! The farewell season of @fullerhouse is coming your way. We love our fans! Thank you so so much for your support over the years. We saved the best for last”.
Andrea Barber tweeted alongside the caption: “The farewell season. We saved the best for last.”
In an interview with Access Online, Jodie Sweetin spoke about the final season is easier to deal with than the Full House final season saying: “I think it’s a little easier this time. The first time, it was like ‘am I going to see [these people] again?’ … Now, we’re here for each other through thick and thin. It makes it a little easier in that I know I won’t be saying goodbye to them. It’s just [missing] working with them every day.”
What will happen in season 5 of Fuller House?
Be careful – spoilers ahead so if you haven’t seen season 4 yet, go back and watch it all!
Season 4 concludes with the birth of Stephanie’s surrogate baby with most of the cast now assembled in the hospital. We conclude the episode and the season with a marriage proposal between Stephanie and Jimmy.
There are a few unfinished storylines but nothing that couldn’t be wrapped up in a special one-off episode. Ultimately, if the show was to be canceled, season 4 concluded relatively nicely.
It has been revealed that the ending to season 4 was very different at one person. The Fuller House Podcast speculated that it was changed because season 5 was unlikely. Writer Bryan Behar took to Twitter to clarify the situation.
All I can say is… there was a scene that was cut. But it has nothing to do with a season 5. We shot it, but everyone involved thought it didn’t feel like Fuller House. That’s the extent of the mystery. It wasn’t cut for any other reason.

The most recent taping occurred on August 3rd, 2019 with Andrea Barber posting on Instagram a massive group photo.
Accompanying the picture, Andrea shared her thoughts and condolences for those that queued to watch the taping but didn’t get in saying:
Forgot to post our group pic with these awesome fans on tape night! We know not everybody gets in to the show; we know you wait for many, many hours; we acknowledge just how much that sucks! But please know we see you, we love you, we appreciate you more than you even realize. Thanks for sticking with us. You’re a part of our Fuller family no matter what.
In mid-September, Candace shared a photo that many have speculated may indicate a wedding at some point in season 5.
In late October 2019, the filming for episode 16 took place.

When will season 5 of Fuller House release on Netflix?
As you know, Netflix reverted its release schedule back for season 4 of Fuller House.
For season 3, Netflix put the show on a schedule you’ll recognize from The Ranch whereby it splits a full season into two halves. Here’s a look at the previous year’s release schedule for Fuller House.
|Season 1||February 2016|
|Season 2||December 2016|
|Season 3 – Part 1||September 2017|
|Season 3 – Part 2||December 2017|
|Season 4||December 2018|
As of November 2019, the series still has yet to get a final release date. We have had some news recently that the final season will be split into two. Given Netflix is still listing the release for season 5 is still fall 2019, we’re predicting season 5 will be available in December 2019 with the first half and then early-to-mid 2020 for the final set of episodes.
