While most of free world is celebrating the Full House spinoff that has now been confirmed for 2016 by Netflix, Lori Loughlin must temper her enthusiasm.

The actress (who every teenage boy crushed on in the early 1990s) portrayed Aunt Becky on the original sitcom and has made it clear she’d like to be part of the reboot.

But her phone hasn’t exactly rang just yet.

"They have been working on this for a while. It’s a spin-off idea that’s a flip on the original series," Loughlin told Access Hollywood co-hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover today.

"They made deals with Candace [Cameron Bure], Jodie [Sweetin], and Andrea [Barber]. I believe they just closed [John Stamos’] deal. I don’t have a deal. Dave doesn’t have a deal, Bob – we’re all in negotiations."

The Full House spinoff will be titled Fuller House and it will feature Cameron-Bure’s D.J. Tanner-Fuller living in San Francisco as a widowed mother of two.

Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and fellow single mom Kimmy Gibbler (Barber) – along with Kimmy’s teenage daughter Ramona – will all move in to help take of DJ’s two young kids.

"We want to be there. We want to come back. It’s up to them. It’s not on us. It’s now on them," Loughlin said of she and some of the other older ex-castmates.

Stamos is on board to occasionally reprise his role as Uncle Jesse, but the statues of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are also unknown at this time.

"It doesn’t matter how much money they get paid, they don’t care," Loughlin told Access Hollywood of the famous twins.

"I honestly don’t know if they want to do it. I’m sure they’re talking to them. I don’t know what’s going on there. Everyone would love it [if they came back], it would be really nice."

Then again.. you only really need one Olsen sister to come back, right?
