When Netflix announced their Full House revival series Fuller House earlier this year, the streaming service revealed that they were in discussions with a number of the original series stars to return for guest-starring spots. Today actress Lori Loughlin confirmed that she is coming back as Aunt Becky in Fuller House. Here's what she had to say in a brief statement.
"Doing that show was one of the best jobs I've ever had. It was just so much fun. I think with Jeff Franklin at the helm - he's the creator of Full House - it's hard to go wrong because nobody's more protective of that show than he is. That's his baby."
Lori Loughlin joins previously-confirmed stars Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) and Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey). Talks are still under way to bring back Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), but we reported earlier this month that Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen will not be back as Michelle Tanner. John Stamos is also serving as a producer on the series.
The show will follow a recently-widowed D.J., as her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy move into their childhood home to help D.J. raise her children in San Francisco, as she expects another child. It isn't known how many episodes Lori Loughlin and the other returning guest stars will appear in. Production will begin later this year, with the series slated to premiere next year on Netflix. Lori Loughlin recently starred in The Hallmark Channel series When the Heart Calls, and she also starred on The CW series 90210.
