Full HouseThe Olsen twins may not be coming back for "Fuller House," Netflix's "Full House" spinoff, but one key player is — Aunt Becky!

Lori Loughlin confirmed on "Good Morning America" that she is reprising the role on "Fuller House."

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

In the original series, Becky was Danny Tanner's (Bob Saget) co-host on "Wake Up, San Francisco." She met and fell in love with Jesse (John Stamos), and the two eventually got married and had twin boys. Throughout the show, Becky often served as a maternal figure to D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen).

"Fuller House" focuses on D.J., now a single mom of her own, who invites Stephanie and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) to move in to help raise her two sons — a set-up very similar to "Full House."

The Olsen twins will not be coming back for the spinoff, which executive producer Robert L. Boyett announced recently. Loughlin said of their decision, "We would've loved it. It would've been great. But I understand."

The 13-episode season of "Fuller House" will debut on Netflix in 2016.
