Major life events take place on the third season of Fuller House. Steve and C.J. make plans to get married in Japan and the gang heads overseas for the big wedding, but before anyone has a chance to say “I do,” a big revelation has an impact on the nuptials. Plus, Stephanie makes plans to get in-vitro fertilization, D.J. tries to get Tommy into a prestigious preschool, and Fernando buys Kimmy’s childhood home and restores it to its former glory. Meanwhile, Jackson and Ramona start high school where Ramona tries out for her school’s dance team while Jackson becomes a joke at his school after slipping on a piece of bologna during lunch. Joey, Jesse and Danny come home to celebrate 30 years since they initially moved in together to raise the Tanner girls. It’s an unforgettable season filled with laughter and love for the Tanners and their friends on this beloved family comedy.
