Netflix’s Fuller House may never bring Michelle back to the fold, but another ‘90s TV icon could be waiting in the wings. A curious reference from the Season 3 finale brings Family Matters’ Steve Urkel back into play, and producers have actually discussed bringing the famed character to San Francisco for a visit.
The ever-evolving Netflix model makes it difficult to discern viewer data, let alone interpret what tidbits the company confirms. That said, Netflix has been studying “binge racers” who finish seasons within twenty-four hours of their debut, and you might be surprised by the highs and lows.
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.
Want an even longer stay at the Fuller House in Season 3? You got it, dude. After confirming on Christmas Eve that the Tanners and Fullers would be back for an additional order in 2017, producers say Season 3 has an even bigger episode count than the first two years.
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.
