Wake up, San Francisco! Bob Saget will be on 'Fuller House'

Bob Saget will be on "Fuller House," according to John Stamos

The house just got a little more crowded.

Bob Saget, star of the popular late-'80s/early '90s TV show "Full House," will be returning as Danny Tanner in the Netflix reboot “Fuller House,” according to castmate John Stamos.

Stamos, who will reprise his role of Uncle Jesse, made the casting announcement Thursday night on Twitter. At the same time, he may have taken a little dig at the original show's star twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who will not be returning.

“Last but not least-best piece of casting yet. The great @bobsaget will be joining our show on @netfilx - this completes the perfect reunon!” Stamos tweeted.

The post was followed by one apologizing for spelling errors.

Not long after, Saget retweeted Stamos' announcement, adding: "How did you get this information? Kidding! Love you Jesse!"

The announcement comes almost a week after news broke that the Olsens were passing on the sequel to the popular sitcom.

Executive producer Robert L. Boyett wished the 28-year-old twins the best when he released a statement on the development.

Stamos, it seemed, was not so pleased.

"Just so you reporters know -- this is not a money gig for any of us -- quite the opposite -- we want to give the fans what they deserve for supporting us for so many years -- we all just want to have fun -- do it in a classy way on netflix and have a good time -- sad that a few don't share the rest of the cast's opinion -- i can only wish them the best," Stamos wrote on his verified Facebook page following Boyett's statement.

Other returning stars of the earlier series include Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Dave Coulier, Andrea Barber and Stamos. 

The new 13-episode series, set to debut in 2016, will let its audience catch up with the members of the Tanner family in modern day.
