Netflix announced Thursday that “Fuller House” would return this fall for a fifth and final season.
“Fuller House” was a hit when it first debuted in 2016, but viewership fell by 52% from season one to season two in their first month of release, according to Jumpshot. The drop was much smaller between seasons three and four, when viewership fell by just 10%. That suggests that the show held on to a loyal fan base after casual viewers jumped ship, and it could explain why Netflix kept it for five seasons. But it probably wasn’t enough to renew the show past its coming final outing.
