Jodie Sweetin Joins ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 22

Fuller House” star Jodie Sweetin has revealed that she is the first cast member to join “Dancing With the Stars” Season 22. She’ll be partnered with  dance pro Keo Motsepe.

Sweetin made the announcement on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday, the same day that Netflix renewed “Fuller House,” her long-awaited “Full House” sequel series, for Season 2. Sweetin plays Stephanie Tanner on the comedic revival.

“I would have loved to have done it in the past but it was a huge scheduling conflict with ‘Fuller House’ at the time so I wasn’t able to do it, but I’m a huge fan of the show,” she said on “GMA.”

Sweetin already had a chance to test the waters by dancing with “DWTS” pro Val Chmerkovskiy on “Fuller House,” an experience that she said “definitely helped set things up” for her to join the competition.

“I’ve always loved to dance. Stephanie was a dancer on the show growing up; I danced growing up, not as much as I would have liked to. I definitely don’t call myself a professional but I have some moves, I have some rhythm so I’ll be okay.”

Her “Fuller House” castmate, Candace Cameron Bure, previously competed on the ABC dance series in Season 18, where she was partnered with Mark Ballas. Bure came in third on “DWTS” — can Sweetin do better?

The rest of the “DWTS” Season 22 cast will be revealed on “GMA” next week.
