John Stamos responded on social media to the news that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won’t be joining Netflix’s “Fuller House” by tweeting he’s “heartbroken.”

"I understand they're in a different place and I wish them the best," Stamos tweeted in another post. “I promise you will not be disappointed with our reunion and spin off!”

Stamos also shared his thoughts on Facebook late Friday on the upcoming series, saying, " Just so you reporters know, this is not a money gig for any of us, quite the opposite. We want to give the fans what they deserve for supporting us for so many years.”

He continued, “We all just want to have fun -- do it in a classy way on Netflix and have a good time -- sad that a few don't share the rest of the cast's opinion -- I can only wish them the best.”

The Olsen twins confirmed they were not going to be part of the reboot via a statement executive producer Robert L. Boyett gave to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.

"Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of 'Fuller House,' I know how much 'Full House' has meant to them and they are still very much considered family," he said. "It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards 'Fuller House.'"

"Fuller House" is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in 2016. The reboot will star original cast members Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), her on-screen younger sister, Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmie Gibbler). John Stamos will produce and come back as Uncle Jesse in a guest role. Dave Coulier will also return as Uncle Joey. Bob Saget (Danny Tanner) and Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky) are still in talks to reprise their roles for the series.
