Less than a day after Lori Loughlin announced she would be reprising her Full House character Aunt Becky on Netflix’s Fuller House,John Stamos revealed late Thursday that his friend and former co-star Bob Saget would be joining as well.
“Last but not least-best piece of casting yet,” Stamos wrote on Twitter. “The great @bobsaget will be joining our show on @netflix - this completes the perfect reunion!”
This means nearly the entire Full House crew will be back together – minus Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who won’t be reprising their shared role of Michelle Tanner.
Fuller House will center on the recently-widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure), now a veterinarian and who is expecting her third child. To help care for her two young sons, younger sister and aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and their former neighbor Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) move in to her San Francisco home to help. Along with Loughlin, Stamos – who is a producer – will reprise his role as Uncle Jesse and Dave Coulier will also return as Uncle Joey.
Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of Fuller House to premiere in 2016. The first episode will be a special one-hour reunion with the Tanner family.
Sweetin recently spoke with ETonline about the anticipated series, revealing that filming could begin as early as July.
“We’re going to breathe life into their characters and show people what they’re familiar with, but do it as adults and have fun with it,” she shared.
