The third season of Fuller House has a premiere date, at least for the first half of its season and for fans of not only the reboot, but also the original series, Full House, the date has special meaning. In fact, the date that was chosen by Netflix and the series is especially important to the franchise and its long history.
According to E! News, Candace Cameron Bure, one of the stars of Fuller House took to Instagram in order to announce the news about when the first half of the season will begin streaming. The actress shared the news with a picture of the original cast as they were when they first started the original series.
In the actress’ Instagram post she tells her fans to mark their calendars for September 22. Not only will Fuller House be back with nine new episodes on that date, but it is also the 30th anniversary of when Full House actually premiered on ABC.
During the second season saw the Tanner-Fuller clan celebrating any number of holidays, however, the third season will apparently be taking advantage of the sunnier season of the year. While at the Kids Choice Awards, Candace Cameron Bure revealed that while she had only had the chance to read the scripts for the first two episodes of season three, she does know that this season of Fuller House will be all about “summer fun.”
Unfortunately for one character season three will not be all that fun, as Jodie Sweetin who plays Stephanie is dealing with a real life injury that ultimately had to be written into the script. Since the actress broke her ankle and tibia while trying to retrieve a toy that her child had tossed over a fence, her character will also be dealing with the injury because as Sweetin points out, there is simply no way to hide the fact that she really can not walk. As the actress said, “I can only be a houseplant in so many episodes where I’m just stuck somewhere.”
While season three of Fuller House has a premiere date for the first nine episodes, there is no word yet as to when the second set of nine episodes will begin streaming. For now though, fans of both the reboot and the original series can at least celebrate 30 years of the Tanners and now Fullers when the series returns on Full House‘s 30th anniversary on September 22.
