If you love the classic American sitcom Full House, then there is sad news for you. Danny Tanner, Jesse Katsopolis, Joey Gladstone and the little munchkin Michelle with her two sisters will be leaving Netflix as the sitcom has been scheduled to leave the streaming service at the end of May 2020. The show is not on Netflix US, but it had a long run on Netflix UK and Netflix India.
Full House was a big hit, during its entire run from 1987 to 1995. The show is full of heart and teaches a great life lesson in each episode. The show has eight seasons, and all of them will be leaving Netflix on May 31st, 2020. Including the UK and India, there are other regions as well, where the sitcom will be leaving the streaming service.
The reason for Full House leaving Netflix is the expiration of licensing. In most of the regions, it has been available on Netflix since 2016.
Netflix’s original sitcom Fuller House is a spin-off series of Full House after 29 years the first season of the original show aired. DJ finds herself in the same situation as her father was in the original show. She is a widowed mother of three young boys. Her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy moves in to help her raise her kids.
It started in February 2016 when Full House was added to Netflix library. Now Fuller House is coming to an end, after the successful 5 season run and Full House is also leaving Netflix. The last episode of Fuller House will air on June 2nd, 2020.
Till now there is no news on whether it will return to Netflix in future. However, it makes sense for Netflix to renew the licence as the spin-off Fuller House is Netflix Original series.
It is also quite possible that it never returns to Netflix. The original network behind Full House was ABC which is a subsidiary of Disney. Since Disney+ has now its streaming service Disney+ (Disney+ Hotstar in India), it is possible that Full House could be added to Disney+ library. But we don’t know that yet. So, if you want to watch it once again or for the first time then you have one week left.
