While another season of Fuller House is on the horizon, a storm cloud appeared overhead earlier this week. That is when a report surfaced that Netflix was planning to cancel the revival. Well, one of the series' stars is shutting down the rumors. Candace Cameron Bure said:
I don't know why or how that rumor got started. I think it was a slow news day and someone wanted to make more of it than it is. I have no doubt that we're going to be back for Season 5.
There you have it! An enthusiastic reaction from Candace Cameron Bure, who also told E! another critical tidbit. The cast has never been informed of a renewal before a new season of Fuller House has premiered. So, Netflix not renewing the series ahead of its fourth season's premiere is not foretelling of its future.
That is not entirely surprising. The streaming giant usually waits a while before it gives the green light for more of any of its originals. Even the popular Ozark had to wait a while after its second season bowed to receive a renewal.
At the time of the report, Netflix issued a statement saying they had not reached a decision about the show's future. While it did not pour cold water on the rumors, it did confirm they had not decided either way. Candace Cameron Bure's upbeat outlook regarding Fuller House's future will definitely give many cause for relief.
If Season 4 were Fuller House's last, there is no indication the show would have creatively been prepared for it, as in plotted a proper wrap-up to the revival. For all we know, Season 4 ends on a cliffhanger of some sort. Or at least a dangling plot thread.
That would have given Full House fans a bad flashback to the highly unfortunate way the original ended. Spoiler: It was depressing. Hence, why the revival was so important. The opportunity to bring the characters back to life to rectify the way things ended.
Not to mention how short a run the revival would have received. If a cancellation were to take place, Fuller House would have lasted four seasons. While that is a respectable run, it only would have spanned roughly two years. Fuller House premiered on Netflix back in February 2016.
Had the show been cancelled, it would have been an abrupt end to a project many had been desiring for 20 years. That is a long time to wait for something that only lasted two years. Of course, it is way better than nothing and the show did accomplish what it set out to do. So, this fan will always be grateful.
