One of the most famous family sitcoms of the 1900s was 'Full House' that aired between 1987 and 1995. This family comedy gained a lot of popularity for its plot and cast which did a brilliant job for eight consecutive years. The maker, Jeff Franklin, came up with a sequel to this captivating family series with 'Fuller House' as an original Netflix series. The journey has been going on for four seasons with the confirmations of a renewed Season five on January 31, 2019. The fifth season will be the last season hence declared as the final season to this sequel.
The sequel centers around the lives of three sisters D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) who is a veterinarian and a widowed mother of three sons; Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin); and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). They all live together at the Tanner's home since childhood in San Francisco, California. The entire cast of 'Full House' is back and retaken their roles in 'Fuller House' except for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen who were the twins that alternated for the role of baby Michelle Tanner in 'Full House'.
The return of Season five has sparked a set of doubts too. Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin), uncle Jessy's (John Stamos ) wife and aunt to D.J. Tanner and Stephanie, would not be returning to the final season. There has been a scandal that Lori Loughlin has gotten into due to which she won't be representing the role of Aunt Becky in 'Fuller House' Season 5 anymore.
Lori Loughlin and her husband were among 50 individuals who were caught by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office on March 12, 2019 for a nationwide college entrance exam cheating scandal. The accusation against them was that they paid $500,000 in the form of a donation to the Key Worldwide Foundation so that their two daughters would be able to join the school's women's rowing team if they got admitted. The truth to this was that the two girls have never been trained or taken part in any sports-related activity and were not planning on doing so. The rowing team scam was just to cover up the mess that they were doing to get their daughters an admission.
The couple, on March 13, surrendered to the authorities in Los Angeles. Due to the involvement in a legal case, Hallmark Channel decided to sever ties with Loughlin a day after the surrender. She now has lost her role in the scenes from 'When Calls the Heart', as they decided to edit it out. The 'Fuller House' promotions which had her with her daughter in an advertisement decided to remove them from it completely.
