What To Expect From Fuller House Season 5 Part 2

Fuller House season 5 part 1 is now available on Netflix, ending with a great setup for the rest of the season, so fans are naturally curious what’s next for the Tanner clan. The remainder of the show’s final season will be available for streaming in 2020; until then, fans are left to speculate how the Tanners’ story will come to an end.

Netflix’s sequel spin-off of the ’80s/early ’90s family-centric sitcom, Full House, debuted in 2016. Thus far, it has satisfied its old and new fanbase with the main story focused on the two older daughters of Danny Tanner (Bob Saget): DJ Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), alongside their long-time friend, Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).

Since its premiere, the cast has grown bigger as the she-wolf pack and their families got their own story arcs; these plots will all culminate in the remaining episodes of Fuller House season 5, so here’s everything to know about and expect from the show when it returns to Netflix.

When Fuller House Season 5 Part 2 Will Be Released

When Fuller House was renewed for its fifth and final season, Netflix also announced that the outing will be split into two parts. Consisting of 18 episodes, the first half debuted December 6, 2019, while the rest is expected to roll out sometime in 2020. This is only the second time the streaming platform has divided a Fuller House season into two parts: the first time was back in season 3.

The decision for this, however, boils down to the number of episodes per season. Netflix was able to release the complete season 1, 2 and 4 all at once because they only had 13 episodes, while both seasons 3 and 5 have 18 each. Despite the gap in the middle of the season, a little bit of wait time for the next batch of episodes is a decent trade-off for a longer season, especially since it’ll be the final one for Fuller House. It shouldn’t be too long though – the gap in season 3 was only three months – so we can expect it in early-2020.

Fuller House Season 5 Part 2 Story

Fuller House season 5 part 1 ended with the long-awaited engagement of Steve and DJ. Now that all three girls are engaged to be married (Kimmy to Fernando and Stephanie to Jimmy), the she-wolf pack made a promise to also go through the wedding preparation process together. While there’s no set date for the triple wedding, it is safe to speculate that the ceremony and everything leading to it will be a major plot point when the show returns for its final nine episodes.

At this point, that’s the only remaining long-running narrative going for Fuller House, which could mean that much of season 5 part 2 will focus on the wedding preparation, mixed with the extended family’s day-to-day shenanigans. Since the show’s final season also barely featured the older cast, especially Uncle Jesse and Joey, chances are that they’re going to be more involved in the remaining episodes, leading to a satisfying conclusion to the show.

Who’s In Fuller House Season 5 Part 2

The core cast of Fuller House is still expected to make an appearance in the back half of season 5. Aside from the Tanner-Fuller household dwellers, regular appearances from Matt, Gia, Rocky and perhaps even Ethan will continue. As previously mentioned, the older cast are expected to be more involved as the hit sequel spin-off builds up to its series finale.

Two characters who fans won’t see in season 5 are Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin) and Michelle Tanner (Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen). Jesse’s wife was already a no-show in Fuller House season 5 part 1 after she was fired by Netflix over the college admission scandal. And with the trial still ongoing, there’s no chance that she’ll make an appearance. As for Michelle – Tanner’s youngest sister, the Olsens who are now fashion moguls have long refused to reprise the character.
