Netflix’s Fuller House returned somewhat quietly over the weekend, especially as Season 3 marked the original Full House’s 30th anniversary. The series is known for celebrating its sitcom past, but if thirty years couldn’t attract either Olsen back to their humble beginnings, producers confirm they’ve given up Michelle’s ghost.
Full House is now officially too old to live with its parents. Thankfully, Netflix successor series Fuller House doesn’t pay rent, so there’s nothing (too) creepy or sad about returning to that iconic house for Season 3, especially as the new trailer commemorates the show’s 30th anniversary.
The first season of Netflix Full House revival Fuller House proved a major hit for the streaming service, and even if Season 2 couldn’t quite match its success, the Tanners will give it a third shot regardless. The series has officially been renewed for Season 3, arriving in 2017.
The absence of Michelle seemed not to hamper Netflix’s Fuller House revival, which only made the omission more notable with bizarrely bitter meta-references to the Olsen twins. One surprising story saw John Stamos admitting he’d approached Elizabeth Olsen for the role, but according to Fuller House bosses, a recast Michelle was never in question.
Time and time again, we’ve seen TV exteriors of houses and apartments turning into tourist destinations, despite actual scenes shooting nowhere near there. Full House might be one of the most enduring examples, though creator Jeff Franklin has now actually bought the famed San Francisco townhouse, and may shoot Fuller House Season 3 with it.
