John Stamos Posts Heartfelt 'Fuller House' Tribute Featuring Lori Loughlin After Series Wraps

November 19, 2019

Have mercy!

It’s time to say goodbye to the Tanner, Fuller, Gibbler, Gladstone, and Katsopolis families as "Fuller House" takes its final bow.

The Netflix reboot of the iconic 90s series, "Full House," wrapped up filming on its fifth and final season.

As the cast completed the final taping, they took to social media to pay tribute to their co-stars, thank the fans for their longtime devotion, and say goodbye… again.

John Stamos honored his TV family with a handful of pictures, many of which included the Aunt Becky to his Uncle Jesse, Lori Loughlin, who is currently embroiled in a messy college admissions scandal.

"The end of an era … again,” Stamos wrote. “Last night was final taping of @FullerHouse. When every single network and streamer said no to a Full House re-boot, (and I mean ALL of them) @netflix said yes! And they were kind enough to let us play for five seasons!"

And while he admits the cast would have loved to keep the show going, he kept it positive as he pointed out that five seasons is a lot by the streaming service's standards.

"Regardless, we are grateful. I am especially grateful to the cast and crew for keeping the legacy alive and adding so much love to it. Whether you are new to the Full/Fuller House universe or you’ve been with us since the beginning, I can’t thank you enough for keeping the franchise alive, the characters alive, but most importantly, the love alive between all of us that shines out to all of you," he added.

Stamos also pointed out the importance of family television "like Fuller House" in the current TV landscape.

"Decency is at an all-time low, and discord at an all-time high," he wrote adding, "I am grateful to the fans FOREVER! Love and mercy, John."

Fans were pleased with Stamos’ inclusion of Loughlin, who played his on-screen wife since the show’s inception in 1987.

Loughlin’s legal troubles made headlines this year and forced Netflix to drop her from appearing on the show’s final season.

In an interview with PEOPLE Now, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) said Loughlin's presence was missed.

“It just felt like there was a hole in the whole season but also in that final episode. She should’ve been there, and I’m sorry that she wasn’t,” she said.

Loughlin pleaded not guilty to paying a consultant to get her daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli, whom she shares with husband, Mossimo Giannulli, into college.

The daughters were accepted as crew recruits despite never having rowed before.

Several co-stars echoed Stamos' heartfelt post with Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) simply adding, "Well said brother."

Jodie Sweetin, who brought Stephanie Tanner to life, shared similar sentiments writing, "I know this will never happen again... this special magic that is Full and Fuller House. The family we created will last the rest of our lives. So, while I may not see them every day like I have been, I know this family is never far from my heart."

Meanwhile, Candace Cameron Bure (DJ Tanner) and her "She-Wolf" pack (Sweetin and Barber's characters) performed some '90s karaoke during the official sitcom wrap party on Saturday.

Barber shared a video of the three singing New Kids On The Block's "(You Got It) The Right Stuff."

Bure also took to Instagram to write "Is there any other way to wrap up the series?!" alongside a clip of them performing the iconic "Fuller House" theme song.

The final season is expected to drop on Netflix later this year.

The 18-episode season will be split into two parts, with the second half coming in 2020.
