Lori Loughlin will reprise her role as Aunt Becky–the wife of John Stamos’ character Uncle Jesse on Full House–when the reboot, Fuller House, begins filming this summer. Fuller House will air on Netflix, and will star Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber.
Lori Loughlin made her official announcement on Thursday on Good Morning America.
“I’m very excited,”she said. “Officially I am going to be a part of the reboot, or spin off, Fuller House.”
A few weeks ago, when asked about the spinoff, Lori Loughlin said she would appear on the show only if “the powers that be are fair to all of us.”

Loughlin, like John Stamos and Dave Coulier, won’t appear in every episode of Fuller House.
“We’re going to help Candace and Jodi and Andrea like spin off the new show…,” Lori Loughlin explained. “We’ll come back and we’ll do the first episode and then maybe throughout the season we’ll pop up here and there.”
Two Full House actors who won’t appear in the reboot are the Olsen twins–Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
“We would have loved it, it would have been great but I understand,” Lori Loughlin said of the actors who together played the role of Michelle Tanner.
Filming for Fuller House is set to begin this summer. Full House ended back in 1995, but most of the cast members stayed close.
“We truly, truly had a great time,” Loughlin 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.”

Kudos to Lori Loughlin for reprising her role as Aunt Becky on Fuller House. After all, it just wouldn’t be the same to have Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) without his beautiful wife.
Were you a Full House fan? Are you excited about Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, and more coming together once again to reprise their beloved characters?
