It’s Baaaaaaaaaack! Fuller House Season 3 Trailer Drops

For nostalgic fans, the announcement that Netflix was rebooting the much beloved Full House series was roundly met with excitement. Though some of that excitement definitely waned once viewers finally watched the new product, Netflix has continued to support Fuller House, renewing it through at least a third season. Today, said third season’s trailer has officially dropped.

What can we expect from the third season? Well, pretty much more of the same. Whether you’re a discerning critic or not, it’s hard to argue that the safe formula has been successful for both the series and the platform. Relatively inexpensive to produce compared to shows like The Get Down or Sense 8, Fuller House doesn’t have to hit the highest of highs in return ratings. Moreover, it’s a safe show for the kidlets to watch, and still mostly tolerable for said kidlets adult guardians who happen to be in the same room.

Yes, some of the humor is still stilted, some of the jokes can fall on the side of problematic, and the show seems to still love falling heavily on the side of cheese. That said, it’s mostly harmless fluff. Considering the world nowadays, it’s safe fluff, and a reminder of sitcoms of yesteryear, where everything always worked out. In fact, other shows and networks with the same tone have been seeing record rating increases. Netflix has had similar success with the also revamped Norman Lear comedy, One Day at a Time (though this series was met with more critical acclaim, and a devoted fanbase, particularly among queer women).

Fuller House is not going to be a masterpiece, but it looks like goofy, escapist entertainment… which some of us could probably use a little of.

Fuller House stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber. The third season will premiere Friday, Sept. 22.
