The actress will reprise her role as Aunt Becky on the upcoming series
Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky are officially reuniting.
Loughlin, 50, tells PEOPLE she will do the reunion episode and is eager to reunite with her former cast mates and longtime friends. “Doing that show was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had,” she says. “It was just so much fun.”
And she hopes that the spin-off will satisfy fans of the original. “I think with Jeff Franklin at the helm – he’s the creator of Full House – it’s hard to go wrong because nobody’s more protective of that show than he is,” she says. “That’s his baby.”
Fuller House will star Candace Cameron Bure as D.J., a newly widowed mom raising her children in the house she grew up in with her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
John Stamos will produce and guest-star as Uncle Jesse, and Dave Coulier is confirmed to appear as Joey as well. No word yet on the status of Tanner family patriarch Danny (Bob Saget), but Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who shared the role of Michelle, have announced that they will not return.
