Fuller House to return

...but it will be for the last time for Netflix series

Netflix has announced a fifth and final series of its old-fashioned sitcom Fuller House.

The news comes a month after the fourth season of the family comedy, starring Bob Saget, Candace Cameron Bure, Dave Coulier, John Stamos and Lori Loughlin dropped.

A spin-off from the ABC series Full House - which ran from 1987 to 1995 – the revival has not been popular with critics, scoring just 35 out of 100 on aggregation site Metacritic.

But it has clearly been successful enough for Netflix to commission a fifth season, as revealed in a teaser trailer released today:

Last year show creator Jeff Franklin left the series after being accused of being verbally abusive to colleagues and making inappropriate, sexually charged comments in the writers’ room.
