Aunt Becky just signed on for upcoming "Full House" spinoff "Fuller House," and now Danny Tanner has joined her.
Uncle Jesse himself -- a.k.a. John Stamos -- confirmed the news on Twitter late Thursday night, revealing that Bob Saget would indeed be a part of the continuing story of the extended Tanner clan. "This completes the perfect reun[i]on!" Stamos tweeted. Saget followed up with his own confirmation, tweeting out the sweet message "Love you Jesse!"

Saget joins Stamos, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodi Sweetin, and Andrea Barber for the reunion/spinoff series, which focuses on D.J. (Cameron Bure) and her children. Sadly, the Olsen twins, who shared the role of Michelle Tanner, will not make an appearance. (We're wondering what kind of sappy story producers will come up with for the youngest Tanner sibling's absence.)
Despite that glaring omission, all parties involved seem psyched for the new show. Stamos has been the biggest cheerleader for the project since it was first announced (and a bit outspoken on social media when it looked like some actors were holding out for more money), and now that the gang will be (mostly) all back together, expect lots more insider-y details from the actor-producer.
"Fuller House" debuts on Netflix sometime in 2016.
