‘Fuller House’ Renewed for Season 3 at Netflix

Ball was the second overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft after playing basketball for one season at UCLA. While at UCLA, he earned consensus first-team All-American honors, as well as leading the nation in assists and breaking the UCLA record for most assists in a season.

“Fuller House,” a Netflix sequel series to ABC’s original “Full House,” which aired for eight seasons from the late 1980s to the mid 1990s on the network, saw its series premiere in February 2016. It centers around D.J. Tanner-Fuller, who has taken on the role of her father in the original series as a widowed mother of three sons, whose sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy — along with her teenage daughter — live together at the Tanners’ childhood home in San Francisco, California. Many of the original actors have returned to the sequel series. Netflix announced that the third season would be split into two parts, with the first part set to premiere Sept. 22, 2017, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the original series.

    I think this is a stupid idea, but tolerable as long as LaVar Ball isn’t on the show. I doubt that those who care about Lonzo Ball are interested in watching Fuller House and I also doubt those who care to watch Fuller House are interested in Lonzo Ball. I say that as someone who is part of the latter group.

    F Lonzo Ball. When talk about Nas! F Lonzo Ball!

    Yello Herman Munster looking at a$$! Never mention Nas the GOAT out of your mouth… F Lonzo Ball
