Netflix’s Fuller House may never bring Michelle back to the fold, but another ‘90s TV icon could be waiting in the wings. A curious reference from the Season 3 finale brings Family Matters’ Steve Urkel back into play, and producers have actually discussed bringing the famed character to San Francisco for a visit.
The first season of Netflix Full House revival Fuller House proved a major hit for the streaming service, and even if Season 2 couldn’t quite match its success, the Tanners will give it a third shot regardless. The series has officially been renewed for Season 3, arriving in 2017.
It’s been just over a year since the first sight of an empty Tanner house gave us all the creeps, and darn it all is the notion of Fuller House isn’t any less strange. Inside of a year, the second season of the Tanner-Fuller sequel series is upon us, and apparently running through every holiday imaginable.
In spite of their monstrous and ever-increasing success, Netflix has yet to publicly reveal any real viewing data, something San Francisco-based Symphony sought to rectify with a strange cell phone app analyzing viewership data by audio. Netflix flatly denied the accuracy of said “ratings,” but may not want to, if word of Fuller House having upwards of 10 million viewers proves true.
Blow through Fuller House Season 1 in the span of a day, and need a new fix? You got it, dude. The short turnaround of sitcom production makes it relatively easier for shows like Fuller House to crank out new episodes, and according to John Stamos, Season 2 is coming “a lot sooner than we released last year’s.”
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.
