There's no such thing as overindulging on Fuller House – but if you are anything like us over here at J-14, then you are most definitely devastated that you already finished all 9 episodes that just hit Netflix in September. But don't worry – Season 3 isn't over yet.
Although Season 3 of Fuller House is available now to stream on Netflix, the season is being split into two parts. The nine episodes that premiered on September 22 for the 30th Full House anniversary (ahem, Tanner-versary) only mark the beginning. Rather than releasing all episodes of the season at once, they decided to make us patiently wait for new episodes. How ~old school television~ of them, right? Cue Stephanie Tanner.
Okay, it's not that rude though. We see where they were going with this. You see, the first and second seasons of the hit spin-off drama consisted of 13 episodes each. The third time around though, they bumped it up to 18 episodes. So even though it is being divided into two separate parts, they are actually giving us more this time around. Hey, we're not complaining! Take all the time you need, Tanners – we will take all the new episodes we can get!
Alright, now let us start off by saying: SPOILER ALERT! If you are not yet caught up on the series and don't want to know about the cliffhanger ending, read no more! But for those of you who do want to freak out over the ending with us, let it be known that we are fully shook to the core over what happens.
As we know from the early episodes of Season 3, Steve and his fiancé C.J. are getting married in Japan. In the last episode, the fam is on their flight to Japan when Kimmy and Steve switch seats, leaving the high school lovers side by side. Blinded by her sleep mask, D.J. then goes on to tell Kimmy (who is actually Steve) that she's afraid to see Steve marry somebody else. Oh, and did we mention Matt is planning on proposing to D.J. on the trip? It truly leaves you on the edge of your seat.
As for the kids, they have their fair share of ups and downs as well. Ramona, for one, kicks her boyfriend Popko to the curb. She ultimately dumps him because he makes a ridiculous claim that he needs other girls to keep him company for THE WEEK she'll be in Japan. Like are you kidding, Popko? Boy, bye! Jackson and Rocki, on the other hand, seem to have something brewing between them. They spent a lot of time together because of summer school, and it seems like their friendship could turn into something more for sure. Jackson even brings out Rocki's softer side, which is something we thought we'd never see. Ah, young love at its finest.
Just like the past two season, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not be coming back for the reunion series. So unless they've been keeping the biggest secret the universe has ever seen, we won't be seeing them in the second round of new episodes. However, we're constantly hoping to see Michelle just casually walk through the door one day.
Despite our hopes and dreams though, series creator Jeff Franklin doesn't have a good feeling they'll ever return. In fact, he's given up on them completely.
"Personally, I've given up asking them." he told TVLive. "The door is open, but I’m not going to be calling them anymore to invite them. They just don’t seem interested in coming. It’s been three years of invitations, so they know the door is open. It’s up to them to decide if they want to come play or not."
Netflix has not yet announced a release date for the second batch of Season 3 episodes, but we do know that it will be in December of 2017 – phew! It is a true blessing we don't have to wait until next year. Until then, you can catch us streaming the entire series from the beginning – because just like Full House, you can never get sick of watching re-runs. Now, where's the popcorn?
