Authorities have no information on the cause of death. Detectives have found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case. The Orange County Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

TMZ was first to report the news.

The Philadelphia native got his start with a stint on CBS’ The Morning Program in 1987, just before landing his breakout role as Danny Tanner on ABC’s popular family sitcom Full House.

Saget shot to fame with his portrayal of Tanner, a father of three daughters who recently lost his wife and moves in with his brother-in-law (John Stamos) and his best friend (Dave Coulier). Though the ABC show was hardly a critical success, it struck a chord and was a hit with audiences, running from 1987 to 1995, and was later revived with much of the cast on Netflix’s Fuller House in 2016.

Full House launched the careers of then-child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Candace Cameron Bure, while propelling the paths of Stamos, Coulier and Lori Loughlin.

In Saget’s final tweet, sent early in the morning on Sunday, he gushed about the “appreciative audience” at his comedy show in Jacksonville, Fla. that night. “I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight,” he wrote, in part. “I’m happily addicted again to this s—.”
