Fuller House’s future looks to be in doubt after season 4 of the show released in December 2018. Will we be getting season 5 in 2019 or is the show now wrapped up for the foreseeable future? Let’s take a look at the prospects of season 5 of 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: Not yet renewed (Last updated: 12/18/2018)
The series has yet to be officially renewed but don’t worry yet, that’s normal. It usually takes a couple of months for us to discover whether a new season is on the way. Expect an announcement of season 5’s status in early 2019.
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 a 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.

Is Netflix prepping to cancel Fuller House?
Some fans have pointed to the fact that finding season 4 of Fuller House has been exceptionally hard to do. The title card doesn’t currently feature on the Netflix Original carousel (at least on the various accounts we’ve tried) and we haven’t found it in the headline slot.
The week that Fuller House came out was exceptionally crowded when it came to Netflix Originals with the likes of Roma, Cuckoo, Travelers, Voltron, Wanted and Fit for Fashion all fighting for your attention.
Of course, rumors of the show’s cancelation first arose over recent months. TVline points to a big shakeup behind the scenes with Jeff Franklin fired as the showrunner. Accusations of misconduct arose last year regarding the now fired showrunner.
When would season 5 of Fuller House release on Netflix?
As you know, Netflix reverted its release schedule back for season 4 of Fuller House. 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|
Based on this, we think that should Fuller House get renewed for season 5, it’ll be here by the end of 2019. The most likely release date for it would be December 2019.
Don’t forget you can break into the New Year with the Tanner family too with a New Years countdown due out just before January 1st, 2019.
