UPDATE: Sweetin confirmed the news on Good Morning America on Wednesday, March 2.
Stephanie Tanner is getting her turn in the spotlight. Fuller House’s Jodie Sweetin has signed on for season 22 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, an insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.
“I started dancing when I was, like, 3,” the actress, 34, told NJ.com in 2013. “I don't know if you called what I did great dancing, but it was fun.”
Sweetin added plenty of moves to her repertoire during her Full House days. “The girls I danced with in [Full House] were girls I actually trained with in the studio,” added the mom of Zoie, 7, and Beatrix, 5. “So I danced outside the show and they sort of incorporated that as part of the character for Stephanie.”
Fuller House begins streaming on Netflix February 26, and season 22 of Dancing With the Stars premieres on ABC Monday, March 21 at 8 p.m. EST.
