Jodie Sweetin, who has reprised her role as Stephanie Tanner on the Netflix series Fuller House, confirmed on Wednesday she'll compete on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars.

It was on Good Morning America that Jodie Sweetin shared her exciting news about season 22 of Dancing With the Stars.

There was some speculation earlier this month that Sweetin might join the upcoming DWTS cast, but nothing was confirmed at that time.

She told E! News competing would be "really fun."

"I've always loved to dance, and Stephanie was a dancer on the show, and I danced growing up," she said at the time. "I have some experience. I have some rhythm."

Jodie Sweetin showed off her dancing talent as Stephanie Tanner in Full House.

Now that Jodie Sweetin has confirmed she'll compete on season 22 of Dancing With the Stars, the next big question is about her dance pro partner. Jodie has been paired with pro dancer Keo Mostepe. He was paired with Chaka Khan during season 21.

Sweetin's Fuller House co-star Candace Cameron Bure competed on season 18 of Dancing With the Stars, alongside Mark Ballas. They wound up in third place that season. Bure, who has reprised her role as DJ Tanner, can't wait to see Jodie Sweetin compete.

"I am so ready; I am more than ready," she says. "I am just there. I will try not to take over for her because I might nudge myself back onto that dance floor."

Good Morning America will announce the rest of the season 22 Dancing With the Stars cast next week.
