'Fuller House' Season 3 Announces a Special Premiere Date

June 27, 2017

“Have Mercy!” The third season of Fuller House will premiere on Netflix on September 22.

The date has extra special meaning for the show. The show originally premiered on ABC on September 22, 1987. So this year’s premiere marks the show’s 30th anniversary.

The show’s creator Jeff Franklin acknowledged the anniversary on Instagram by sharing adorable cast photo from 1987:

September 22, 2017 -- the 30th anniversary of the debut episode of FULL HOUSE, and SEASON 3 of FULLER HOUSE drops on Netflix. I'm having a drink that night!!

So this will be an 18-episode season, but the release will actually be split into two parts. The first episodes will premiere on September 22, and the back half of the season will premiere in December.

E! reports that this season will be focused on “summer fun.”

Plus, Jodie Sweetin (who plays Stephanie Tanner) suffered a leg injury this year. Sweetin admitted that there was no way to hide that she couldn’t walk during filming, so we assume it will be written into the show's plot.

Mark your calendars for September 22nd! Not only will Full House turn 30 years old- but @fullerhouse Season 3 (part 1) will also premiere on @netflix!!! #ThrowBack #FirstNineEpisodes #Part1 ----
