Have mercy! Jesse and the Rippers are back!

Jesse Katsopolis, John Stamos' character on the 1990s sitcom "Full House," and his fictional band The Rippers are set to reunite this Friday for a performance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

The band was last seen playing at Uncle Jesse's nightclub, The Smash Club, sometime around 1995.

Jesse Katsopolis has been tweeting over the past few weeks that a Rippers reunion may be coming. Stamos even posted a video on his Instagram account Monday of himself and the Rippers singing the "Full House" theme song, along with the caption, "never thought I'd be singing THIS song.

There's been no word yet if any of his "Full House" co-stars will be on-hand for the Rippers reunion, but several -- including Candace Cameron Bure -- have tweeted their support.

This isn't the first time Fallon has played a part in reuniting '80s and '90s television casts. In 2009, he enthusiastically lobbied for a "Saved by the Bell" cast reunion, and even managed to get "Bell" star Mark-Paul Gosselaar to appear on his show in character as Zack Morris. Earlier this year, Fallon also staged a reunion with the cast of "The Cosby Show."
