The Tanner family will be saying goodbye (again).

In a video announcement released today, Netflix has officially renewed “Fuller House” for a fifth season, which will also be its last. The final season will debut on the streaming platform sometime this fall, with all of the series’ main cast expected to return.

Coming from “Full House” creator, Jeff Franklin, “Fuller House” is a sequel series to the beloved original, picking back up with D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) as a mother of three young boys, trying to move on after the death of her husband. But in order to help out D.J. in the raising of her kids, D.J.’s sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and her best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) move in to help out in any way they can.

The Netflix series featured many of the other, original stars of “Full House” returning to reprise their roles, including Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, and more. While Netflix doesn’t release the official viewership numbers for their any of their original series either, “Fuller House” has been generally considered to be one of the streaming service’s most popular titles.

The first four seasons of “Fuller House” are available to stream on Netflix now.
