Netflix’s Fuller House may never bring Michelle back to the fold, but another ‘90s TV icon could be waiting in the wings. A curious reference from the Season 3 finale brings Family Matters’ Steve Urkel back into play, and producers have actually discussed bringing the famed character to San Francisco for a visit.
The ever-evolving Netflix model makes it difficult to discern viewer data, let alone interpret what tidbits the company confirms. That said, Netflix has been studying “binge racers” who finish seasons within twenty-four hours of their debut, and you might be surprised by the highs and lows.
The recent rash of Netflix cancellations has produced one oddly-harmonious refrain in the comments: “Cancel Fuller House instead!” Well, apologies. Not only are the Tanners and Fullers officially returning for Season 3 in September, but they’re celebrating a major milestone in the process.
The absence of Michelle seemed not to hamper Netflix’s Fuller House revival, which only made the omission more notable with bizarrely bitter meta-references to the Olsen twins. One surprising story saw John Stamos admitting he’d approached Elizabeth Olsen for the role, but according to Fuller House bosses, a recast Michelle was never in question.
