Jodie Sweetin is ready to slip on her dancing shoes to join the cast of Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars.
There has been much media speculation that Sweetin would join the cast, but the news was made official on Wednesday during her appearance on Good Morning America.
Sweetin will be partnered with professional dancer Keo Mostepe.

Sweetin has turned down requests to appear on DWTS in the past because of scheduling conflicts. A self-declared huge fan of the show, Sweetin said she is very excited to hit the dance floor.
“I’ve always loved to dance, and Stephanie was a dancer on the show, and I danced growing up,” she said. “I have some experience. I have some rhythm.”

In February, Sweetin told E! News that appearing on Dancing With the Stars would be “really fun,” but declined to share whether she was joining the cast.
“I love dance and I think it would be really fun,” she said.
This is the second Fuller House star to appear on the dance competition. Costar Candace Cameron Bure previously appeared on DWTS and couldn’t stop talking about Sweetin and her new dance adventure.
“I am so ready; I am more than ready,” Cameron Bure told E! News. “I am just there. I will try not to take over for her because I might nudge myself back onto that dance floor.”

Sweetin has previewed a few dance sequences in Netflix’s sequel series Fuller House. Maks Chmerkovskiy and Val Chmerkovskiy of DWTS both appeared in an episode of the sitcom.
Sweetin told the GMA anchors her time with Val on Fuller House inspired her to commit to Season 22 of DWTS.
