As Lori Loughlin continues her tale of woes amid the college bribery case, the "Fuller House" cast is back to work, getting ready for season five.


Everything that has a beginning — including good things — must come to an end, and for "Fuller House," it is the beginning of the end.

The famous "Netflix" sitcom, has started table readings for its fifth and final season, and actress, Jodie Sweetin, is excited to get back to work. She shared the news with a post on Instagram, writing,

"We are back; season five table read today and back to rehearsals next week. Woohoo!”


This caption accompanied a photo of the actress who plays "Stephanie Tanner" holding up what appears to be her script, with the words "Fuller House" boldly printed on it.


Sweetin is not the only one excited about the cast going back to work; fans of the show left several comments asking questions ranging from the exact return date to the number of episodes the season would have.

Some followers wrote that they couldn't wait for it to return and binge watch it, while others wanted to know if "Aunty Becky" will star in the TV series or have her character killed off-screen.


"Aunty Becky" is portrayed by Lori Loughlin who is currently in the heat of an ongoing bribery case.

54-year-old Loughlin joined the cast of "Fuller House" during season two of its original run, and was there till it ended in the eight season. She reprised her role when Netflix picked it up for a reboot and has returned for each season.

In April, US Weekly reported that her castmates would love her to take a plea deal to avoid prison and return to the show, but the actress rejected the deal offered to her by prosecutors and is facing possible jail time.


The "Beverly Hills, 90210" star got arrested in March along with her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and fifty other people implicated in a nationwide bribery scandal.

The celebrity couple allegedly paid $500,000 to get their daughters — Olivia Jade and Bella — into the University of Southern California. They have since been charged with money laundering conspiracy, but have refused to comment on the charges to the press.

While Loughlin continues to fight her legal battles, "Fuller House" will shoot and air its final season; it is expected to return in late 2019 with eighteen episodes.
