The fifth and final season of Fuller House is about to begin. Netflix has confirmed that the series will premiere season 5 in December 2019.

It’s time to get in the holiday spirit. After all, the Fuller House gang will be here in time for Christmas. Netflix has given a December release date for Fuller House season 5.

TVLine shares that the fifth and final season will debut on Dec. 6, 2019. However, there is a catch. It’s only going to be the first half of the season. That means there’s still more content to come, which will happen sometime in 2020.

Splitting the season in half isn’t all that surprising. With it being the final season, Netflix is going to want to capitalize on that. Splitting the season in half could mean more subscribers to the service.

At the same time, it allows more time for filming and editing, keeping the gap between seasons to a minimum. Fans are used to seeing Fuller House air in December, but filming didn’t wrap until Nov. 15. Had Netflix not decided to split the season in half, it could have meant a few extra months for any episodes. At least now we get a few episodes now and we’ve got a short wait for the final episodes.

There will be a few familiar faces back for this final season. Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and John Stamos are all confirmed for the fifth and final season. Of course, there’s one who will be missing. There were no plans on bringing Lori Loughlin back after the college admissions scandal.

The fifth season has a lot to focus on when it comes to growing families. Stephanie and Jimmy got their baby thanks to Kimmy being their surrogate. The birth happened at the end of the fourth season, so fans have been excited to see what this means for the new parents moving forward. We’ll get to find out soon!
