There has been a lot of talk as of late regarding the projected premiere date for Fuller House season 5 and, at least to date, Netflix is keeping the cards close to the vest. We do know that the final episodes are coming soon, and much like we suspected, they are also coming us in batches. You will see one part of the story this year, and then the next part will be stored for a little bit later on down the road.
Speaking via TV Insider, it was none other than series star Bob Saget who first confirmed this news. Check out what he has to say about saying goodbye to the series — coupled with what seems to be the current plan to roll out a lot of these stories:
“In a couple of weeks I’m doing the last episode. It’s very bittersweet. We had a beautiful episode that we shot a few weeks back with John [Stamos], David [Collier] and myself reflecting on what we’ve accomplished together.
“Then the real accomplishment of this series, Netflix giving you five seasons, is not nothing. Stranger Things, I don’t know, do we want to watch kids when they are 25? I do. I’m a big fan. But five seasons is very respectable. Candace [Cameron-Bure], Jodie [Sweetin] and Andrea [Barber] and all the kids did a really great job. I was very happy to be part of that and send it off with a lot of love. The first nine will air at the end of the year, and the last nine will come in the winter-spring.”
Saget recognizes that he’s not the main driver of the Fuller House story, but he seems happy to be there whenever the production wants to use him. We know that there are a lot of viewers watching the show now with their kids who may have grown up on the original, so it is important there is a lot of nostalgia crammed in to the final batch of episodes. That’s only going to make them more special, and a payoff to not just this show, but also the original from so many years before.
