Cut it out! The cast of Netflix’s Full House reboot, Fuller House, just added one more familiar face. Dave Coulier, who played surrogate uncle Joey on the long-running ABC sitcom, confirmed via Twitter that he has officially signed on for the reunion.

The new series, set to debut sometime in 2016, will follow Candace Cameron Bure‘s character D.J., a newly widowed mother of three, as she teams up with her fellow single mom BFF Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) and younger sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) to help raise her family.
Despite Coulier’s descriptor, star Bure, 39, insisted that Fuller House is not a reunion. “It’s definitely a fresh take,” she told Today‘s Tamron Hall on May 5. “We’re not doing the old show; it’s not a reunion. It’s a spinoff show.”
Coulier, Bure, Barber, John Stamos (who is also executive producing), and the rest of the as-yet-unconfirmed cast are set to begin filming in the summer.
