“I’m very excited,” Lori Loughlin, the actress who played Aunt Becky, said today on “Good Morning America." “Officially I am going to be a part of the reboot, or spin off, 'Fuller House.'”
Loughlin had previously said she would appear on the planned show only if, “the powers that be are fair to all of us.”
Three of Loughlin's “Full House” co-stars – Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber – are already signed onto the show, scheduled to premiere in 2016.
Bure's character will reportedly be a widowed mother of three, who has her sister Stephanie (played by Sweetin) and friend Kimmy (played by Barber) move in to help.
“We’re going to help Candace and Jodi and Andrea like spin off the new show...,” Loughlin said. “We’ll come back and we’ll do the first episode and then maybe throughout the season we’ll pop up here and there.”
The show will feature guest appearances by Loughlin’s on-screen husband, John Stamos, but two of the show’s biggest stars, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, have declined to participate.
“We would have loved it, it would have been great but I understand,” Loughlin said of the now-fashion designer’s reluctance to reprise their role of Michelle, Aunt Becky’s niece.
Netflix announced the “Fuller House” spin-off in April. The original series was cancelled in 1995 but Loughlin says the cast had a serious bond.
“We truly, truly had a great time,” she said. “I think it’s one of the reasons it was so successful because I think you really could tell we enjoyed being with one another."
