Bob Saget was the missing piece of the Fuller House puzzle, but as of the wee hours of Friday morning, he's a done deal, too. Yes, Bob Saget will reprise his role as Danny Tanner in the Full House spinoff, to the delight of fans. No one is more excited about this, however, than John Stamos, who has worked diligently to get most of the original cast members--including Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Dave Coulier--to sign on to the new show.

Stamos is serving as both producer and actor for the reboot, which will air via Netflix starting in 2016. He is reprising his role as Uncle Jesse on a recurring basis. On Thursday, Lori Loughlin, who played his wife in Full House--Aunt Becky--confirmed she is returning for the reboot.

John Stamos shared his elation via Twitter about his friend Bob Saget throwing his hat into the Fuller House ring.

He was clearly very tired when he posted to Twitter, but caught his spelling error, which he shared in another post.

The only members of the original Full House cast who aren't returning for the spinoff are the Olsen twins. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen aren't reprising their role as Michelle Tanner, much to everyone's dismay.

Bob Saget will no doubt represent a huge boost to both the cast's morale and to the show itself. After all, he was the single dad who raised D.J. Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, and little Michelle Tanner with the help of Uncle Jesse, Aunt Becky, and Uncle Joey--played by Dave Coulier. Like John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, and Dave Coulier, Bob Saget will reprise his role on a recurring basis.

Fuller House will shine its spotlight on a pregnant and widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure), who is living in San Francisco with her aspiring musician sister Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and fellow single mom Kimmy Gibbler (Barber).

Are you excited to learn Bob Saget will return for Fuller House?
