Make room for Uncle Joey: Dave Coulier has confirmed that he's joining Netflix's upcoming "Full House" reboot.

"Yes, I'll be on the Fuller House reunion," the actor, 55, tweeted Thursday morning, along with an Instagram photo of himself with "Fuller House" director Mark Cendrowski.

Coulier's co-star John Stamos announced that the spinoff was in the works on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" two weeks ago.

Candace Cameron, who played eldest sister D.J. Tanner on the original series, revealed that the show would begin taping this summer, when she visited TODAY on Tuesday. She also shared some details regarding its plot.

"It's definitely a fresh take. We're not doing the old show," she said. "So, it revolves around my character, D.J., who now has three kids but is widowed, and she asks her best friend and [her sister] Stephanie to come help her raise her kids."

Shortly after news of "Fuller House" broke in April, Coulier took to Instagram to share his excitement.

"So happy for my "Fuller House" girls! I love you all! I hope Mr. Potato Head's coming back too. @candacecbure @andreabarber @jodietweetin," he wrote alongside a vintage shot of the "Full House" cast.

"Fuller House" is set to premiere on Netflix in 2016.
