Netflix has ordered another season of a comedy series that bowed on the streaming service earlier this year. The company announced a third-season pickup for “Fuller House,” an update on the long-running ABC comedy “Full House” that aired in the late ’80s and ’90s.
Season three is due in 2017, Netflix said. Seasons one and two are currently running on the service.
Netflix said of the current series: “The adventures that began in 1987 on ‘Full House’ continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) recently widowed and living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson, neurotic 7-year-old Max and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr.”
Bob Boyett and Jeff Franklin are executive producers on the show, which is produced by Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix.
