Netflix Cancels Fuller House After Five Seasons
Streaming service Netflix announced that the next season of Fuller House would be its last. The show, which is a reboot of the hit 90s sitcom Full House, lasted 5 seasons. As one of the only Netflix shows to hit 5 seasons, it comes as no surprise that they cancelled the show. While its predecessor lasted 8 seasons, Fuller House had an almost 50% viewer dropoff between the first and second seasons.
In addition, while the dropoff wasn’t as big, 10% more viewers left the show between the third and fourth seasons. Netflix didn’t respond for comment. Fuller House starred returning cast members from the original series, and follows the same basic plotline. It also had the biggest single day viewers the day Netflix released it. Every season after that paled in comparison.
