The cast “Fuller House” keeps on on growing. Actors Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit have confirmed they will be reprising their roles from “Full House” for the forthcoming Netflix reboot.
For fans unfamiliar with the actors' names, they’re best known for playing Jesse (John Stamos) and Becky’s (Lori Loughlin) twin boys, Nicky and Alex. The brothers starred alongside the actors on four seasons of the sitcom before it concluded in 1995.

The Tuomy-Wilhoit brothers are not the only members of the Katsopolis gang returning for “Fuller House,” Stamos and Loughlin are also set to star. The on-screen husband and wife shared a photo from the set with fans Monday. "Becky and Jesse together forever," Stamos captioned an Instagram post.
Fans excited to hear about the return of two "Full House" original stars might also be interested to learn that Blake and Dylan may not be the only sets of twins coming to the series. Despite "Fuller House" executive producer Robert L. Boyett confirming in May that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played Michelle Tanner on the show, would not be reprising their role, it appears they may have a change of heart. Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos recently teased that the twosome could return during the 2015 Televisions Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills.
“The Olsen twins are teetering [on] whether or not they’ll be around,” Sarandos said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “There’s a bunch of opportunity for them if they choose to. But they’re not in the current creative."
“Fuller House” will star Danny Tanner’s (Bob Saget) eldest daughter DJ Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) as she nagivates life as widowed single mom. She will rely on her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), best-friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber), dad and uncles Jesse and Joey Gladstone (Stamos and Dave Coulier, respectively) to help her cope. DJ may also find solace in her high school boyfriend Steve (Scott Weinger). Weinger recently confirmed his appearance on the series.
“Fuller House” premieres on Netflix in 2016.
