We won't have the Olsen twins, but at least we'll have Aunt Becky!

Lori Loughlin confirmed that she's reprising the role that made her famous during an interview on Thursday's Good Morning America. "Officially, I am going to be part of the reboot Fuller House," she announced.

The 50-year-old actress also revealed what Fuller House star and producer John Stamos hinted at: The series premiere will be a legitimate Full House reunion. From there, the rest of the Netflix-series will focus on a now-widowed DJ Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) as she raises her sons with help from her sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodi Sweetin) and BFF Kimmy Gilber (Andrea Barber).

"I'm very excited. It's going to be really great to be back with the whole cast," Lori told GMA host Michael Strahan. "It's going to be a lot of fun, and we're going to help Candace, Jodi and Andrea spin off the new show... We'll come back and do the first episode and then maybe throughout we'll pop up here and there."

We need more than one appearance from Aunt Becky in our lives!

Much like her on-screen hubby Stamos, who tweeted that he was "heartbroken," Loughlin is also sad that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen aren't coming back for even the reunion episode. "We would’ve loved it, she admitted. "It would have been great, but I understand."

Loughlin warm our hearts though when she added that the Full House cast has had a blast since their original day one. "We truly, truly had a great time," she said. "We loved each other [and] had such a good time doing that show."
