Playing Jodie Sweetin Officially Joins 'Dancing With the Stars' as 'Fuller House' Gets Renewed

Get ready to see a whole lot more of Jodie Sweetin's impressive dancing skills.

The 34-year-old Fuller House star confirmed she'll be competing on season 22 of Dancing With the Stars on Good Morning America on Wednesday. Her pro dancing partner in the competition is Keo Motsepe, and the two have already started rehearsals.

"I would have loved to do it in the past," Sweetin said, citing scheduling conflicts with filming her Netflix series. "I've always loved to dance ... but I definitely don't call myself a professional."

The mother-of-two also Instagrammed the exciting news on Wednesday.

"FINALLY!!! I can share the fantastic news that I'll be joining @abcdancing this season!! Can't wait!!" Sweetin wrote. "I have the amazing @keo_motsepe as my partner on this wild ride!! #teamkeoandjodie #dwts #season22."

And the good news keeps coming for Sweetin. Netflix renewed Fuller House for a second season -- less than a week after the reboot debuted on the streaming service.

"Season 2. Coming soon to @Netflix. #FullerHouse," the show's official Twitter tweeted on Wednesday.

Last month, Sweetin was coy about rumors she would be appearing on DWTS, even after DWTS pros Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy appeared on an episode of Fuller House.

"Omg! So many rumors flying around!" Sweetin tweeted. "We had Maks and Val on an episode of #FullerHouse and now everyone is saying I'm on DWTS! :) I AM a fan!"

Sweetin, of course, isn't the first Fuller House cast member to compete on the hit ABC show. In 2014, Candace Cameron Bure made it to the finals of season 18, and she and her professional partner, Mark Ballas, ended the series in third place.

Aside from Sweetin, ET has already learned that America's Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Fields will also be competing on the latest season of DWTS. However, both Derek Hough and Julianne Hough -- who served as a judge last season -- will not be returning.

GMA will officially reveal the rest of the cast live on March 8. DWTS will return for its 22nd season on Monday, March 21, on ABC.

If we're judging by the amazing video of Sweetin doing the whip and nae nae alongside Bure and their fellow Fuller House actress, Andrea Barber, from December, we have no doubt she'll go far into the competition!
