Fuller House just aired its season 5 finale, and fans are in an emotional wreck. There were also some questions like the whereabouts of Aunt Beck, and if the sitcom was over now.
Fuller House season 5, episode 11 was titled “Three Weddings and a Musical.” And as expected, it culminated in a triple wedding. It was three times everything–the matrimony, the planning, and the fun.
Fans turned to social media to express their sentiments after the ending since the fifth run is the last of the sitcom.
Is the show canceled?
According to Screen Rant, Netflix has already pulled the plug on Fuller House, which means it will no longer be continuing for another season.
Back in early 2019, it was announced that season 5 is going to be the last. There are no further details as to why Netflix decided to cancel the show.
But it may be linked to a significant decrease in ratings between the first and second season. The giant streaming platform does not release viewership numbers, though, so there is no way to tell now of the exact reason.
Also, it appears that having a relatively large fan base from the 1987 original show is not enough to sustain the sequel beyond five seasons.
So for now, it’s time to say goodbye to the Tanner-Gibbler bunch and the San Francisco home.
Where was Aunt Becky?
One notable character missing in the finale episode is Aunt Betty, who is played by Lori Loughlin. Some of the fans were wondering about her absence.
According to USA Today, the original cast member of the show has recently pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in the college admission scandals.
She and her husband fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli were both pleaded guilty during a hearing in Boston late last month. They were guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and mail fraud.
How did the show explain Aunt Becky’s absence?
To cover her missing-in-action status, the show decided to create a story of Aunt Becky being away from home in one new episode.
The episode showed Becky’s husband Jesse (John Stamos) trying to figure out who bit their adopted young daughter Pamela. He wanted to get Pamela her revenge by biting the perpetrator back.
But his niece D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure), suggested that he should get his wife’s advice on the matter.
Jesse replied, “Aunt Becky is in Nebraska, helping out her mother. I don’t want to bother her with such a tiny little thing like this.”
And with that sole explanation, Aunt Becky was missing in the backyard ceremony and reception where Jesse made a heartfelt toast.
Fuller House is available to stream on Netflix.
