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 hit Netflix back in September. But don't worry – Season 3 isn't over yet. In fact, new episodes are out now.
Did Fuller House Season 3 come out?
Although Season 3 of Fuller House is all available now to stream on Netflix, the season was split into two parts. The nine episodes that premiered on September 22 for the 30th Full House anniversary (ahem, Tanner-versary) only marked 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 get 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 was 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, Tanneritos – we will take all the new episodes we can get! It's safe to say everyone really did enjoy the first half because the show was honored for being one of the top 10 shows on Netflix that brought families together. And now Season 3B is officially out. Check out the trailer for the latest batch of episodes below!
When does the rest of Fuller House Season 3 come out?
December 22, 2017, the next 9 episodes hit Netflix and honestly, it's a true blessing we didn't have to wait until 2018. Leading lady Candace Cameron Bure even took to Instagram to share the news and get us all out of those mid-season blues back in November.
Now, where's the popcorn so we can watch all 18 episodes in a row?
How does the first half of Fuller House end?
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.
What happened in the second half of Season 3?
Well, the love triangle was settled in that first new episode. The whole squad heads to Japan and right at the altar when it's time to say his vows, Steve realizes he can't marry C.J. because he still loved D.J. Plus, Matt and D.J. had gotten engaged the night before but once Steve called off his wedding, D.J. ended things with Matt. Once the whole crew is back in San Francisco, D.J. and Steve decide to wait a month before they start dating again to give them each time to get over their breakups. And as the creator of the show Jeff Franklin told TVLine, D.J. and Steve were always endgame in his eyes, since after he left Full Houe to work on another show, he was never happy with what happened with the couple on that series. So now, it was time for their redemption.
"I was always disappointed in what happened on Full House when I left the show [after Season 5]. I thought Steve and D.J. were a really great couple and the audience was very invested in them. The fact that the producers chose to break them up, and the storylines that followed, were not big crowd-pleasers. That always bothered me. So I looked at this show as an opportunity to let Steve and D.J. get back together someday and have a chance and see what happens," Jeff said. "It was always my intention to give that relationship another chance, but I wanted to throw lots of obstacles in their way. It wasn’t just something we were going to jump into from the beginning. That’s where the triangle came from."
HOW PRECIOUS IS THAT?! So they were always meant to be. And as for all the young couples on the show, well Jackson and Rocki might kiss each other every now and then and while Jackson wants her to be his GF, Rocki isn't into labels and wants the pair to stay just friends. Ramona, on the other hand, found love with a boy band singer in Japan, but after a few weeks, he told her the distance was too much. Now that they're in high school though, there is Chad Brad Bradley (hello Charlie from Girl Meets World!), the captain of the Bayview High dance team who already has an interesting dynamic with Ramona where they pretty much can't stand each other, yet would probably be a really cute couple.
Is Stephanie going to finally be a mom?
YES. Finally, after a long journey, Stephanie and Jimmy Gibbler are going to be parents and it's Kimmy who is helping them out. Stephanie can't have children but Kimmy is going to be her surrogate and carry Steph and Jimmy's baby for them, which stood out as the most emotional moment of the season for sure.
Are the Olsen Twins in Season 3 of Full House?
Just like the past two seasons, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not be coming back for the reunion series. And if you've already watched the second round of new episodes, then you'll know Michelle isn't even mentioned this time around. 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 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."
Bob Saget has spoken out about the girls' refusal to act on Fuller House as well – and he's completely okay with it, TBH. He chatted with Entertainment Tonight and said, "People should do what they want with their lives, and when they're 9 months old and they get a job, [they have a right to stop doing it]. I love them very very much, Ashley and Mary-Kate, and they love what they do and acting is not what they want to do. People should do what they want to do." Ugh, this such a Danny Tanner thing to say and we're all here for it.
Bob continued to show his love for the Olsen twins when Ashley made a rare appearance to support her former TV dad at the Scleroderma Research Foundation. He posted an Instagram with the caption, "We raised 1.2 million dollars last night that goes directly to Scleroderma Research!! So honored my dear friend Ashley Olsen came to support my SclerodermaResearch.org Foundation @SRFcure Event as she has all these years —And here we share a photo with my friend John Oliver, once again generously hilariously performing at #CoolComedyHotCuisine - Thank you for your support, John and Ashley!"
Will there be a Season 4 of Fuller House?
As of right now, Netflix hasn't made any formal decision on whether or not more episodes will be on the way. Jeff was asked if the character of Matt will still be featured on the show even though he and D.J. broke up and he's taken some time off from their animal hospital, and that's when Jeff admitted the status of the series is currently unknown.
"Because we haven’t been picked up yet, we haven’t had any discussions about creative direction or spoken with any of the actors. But he’s become part of our family and I would love to see him stick around somehow," Jeff said.
Time will tell but we can only hope some Tanner-Fuller magic is on the way. C'mon, we need to see what Kimmy is like pregnant with Stephanie's baby!
