Los Angeles, May 24 (IANS) Actor John Stamos reacted to the announcement that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would not be joining "Full House" reboot, tweeting that he was "#heartbroken".

"I promise you will not be disappointed with our reunion and spin off!!"

"Fuller House" will begin with a one-hour reunion, before turning into a spin-off series featuring DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron-Bure) and her three children, along with her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and neighbour Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
