Squeaky clean patriarch Danny Tanner is back in the house! The final piece of the casting puzzle is in place, as star/producer John Stamos confirms Bob Saget will return for the Netflix reunion series Fuller House. This news comes on the heels of yesterday's confirmation that Aunt Becky, otherwise known as Lori Loughlin, will return as well.
Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin join 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). Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, who both shared the role of Michelle Tanner, are the only series regulars who will not be back. It is not yet known in what capacity Bob Saget will be used, if he will appear in all 13 new episodes, or if he is just making a cameo.
Fuller House follows 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. The news of Bob Saget's return was announced via a few playful tweets, which you can see here:
