Coming just in time for Christmas, “Fuller House” has officially been renewed for a third season on Netflix, the cast and crew have revealed online.

Following a not-so-subtle tease from series creator Jeff Franklin too, Netflix quickly confirmed the news that the series would be returning for a third season sometime in 2017. This news also comes, of course, just a few weeks after the show’s second season dropped earlier this month, to similar success as the first season last year.

Acting as a revival of the popular, beloved 90s sitcom, “Fuller House” features the return of a number of the original stars from the series’ history, including Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy), following the lead girls as they return to the home that they were raised at in San Francisco, CA as fully grown adults.

Last year, the series drew in some huge numbers for Netflix when it premiered its first season, reportedly bringing in 14.4 million viewers in the 18-49 demo during its first 35 days of release, giving it the same kind of ratings attention as other popular hits like AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” and few others. Judging by the little hesitation that the streaming titan has shown in renewing the series in the past as well, it doesn’t seem like that success is going to be going away anytime soon either.

Now, whether or not the third season will finally feature the return appearance of Marie Kate and Ashley Olsen’s Michelle that the series has been openly calling for, will have to wait to be seen.
