Another member of the Gibbler family is heading to "Fuller House" for its much-anticipated sophomore season.

According to reports, actor Adam Hagenbuch — popularly known for portraying Daphne's boyfriend Mingo on Freeform's family drama "Switched at Birth" — is slated to appear in the Netflix comedy as Kimmy's (Andrea Barber) never-before-mentioned brother, Jimmy.

It was previously reported that a character named Jimmy, described as a good-looking musician with a "touch on the weird side," will be introduced in season 2.  The said character will also be a love interest for DJ's (Candace Cameron-Bure) little sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin). Although Kimmy has previously mentioned a brother named Garth, season 2 will mark Jimmy's first appearance and mention on the series. It will also be the first time for any member of Kimmy's Gibbler clan to appear onscreen.

Hagenbuch's most notable and recent projects on TV include appearances in "Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life," "Undateable," and "Modern Family."

Jimmy won't be the only estranged family joining this season, as the sitcom will finally introduce Joey's (Dave Coulier) family. from Las Vegas. His wife Ginger and their kids are set to make their "Fuller House" debut in the Thanksgiving episode.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Hal Sparks ("Queer as Folk") will be meeting the Tanner family as DJ's wealthy ex-boyfriend, Nelson Burkhard. The former lovebirds are set to  meet again during their high school reunion, where DJ immediately realize that her haughty ex hasn't changed one bit. Jason Marsden originally played the role in "Full House" two decades ago, but the character had to be recast when Marsden refused to reprise his role due to other commitments. Joining the high school reunion episode this season is DJ's high school frenemy Kathy Santoni, who will also be recast for season 2.

The second season of "Fuller House" premieres on Friday, December 9 on Netflix.
