John Stamos says Danny Tanner completes the 'perfect' reunion for upcoming Netflix series

The Full House reboot is filling out. This week, John Stamos took to Twitter to announce that Bob Saget has joined the cast of the upcoming series Fuller House, which is due to air on Netflix in 2016. Saget will reprise his role as Danny Tanner, the show's eternally optimistic patriarch, morning TV host, and moral compass.

Stamos, who's both producing and co-starring in the show as Uncle Jesse, said the addition of Saget "completes the perfect [reunion]," and that's almost true. So far, Cameron Candace-Burr, who played DJ Tanner, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibler), Jodi Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky) have all signed on for the reboot, while Dave Coulier has committed to appear in at least one episode as Uncle Joey. Notably absent, however, are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who will not be returning as Michelle Tanner. Less notably absent? Steve.
