A Step by Step reunion may be inching closer to reality… step by step.

Patrick Duffy, who played patriarch Frank Lambert in the '90s ABC sitcom, says that he'd love to get the family back together!

The sitcom — which ran for six seasons on ABC and one on CBS between 1991 and 1998 — followed the Lambert-Foster brood. The large, blended family was formed by the marriage of two single parents with six children between them.

Now, in a Reddit AMA, Patrick expresses his excitement at the prospect of a family reunion!

"We all were a very close and loving family off-camera, and if the idea and the script was correct, I'm sure … we would be more than happy to resurrect the Lambert family," he says. "[Co-star Suzanne Somers] and I would love the opportunity to work together again. If scripts and circumstances were appropriate, I'm sure something would happen."

The 65-year-old — who's currently reprising his role of Dallas's Bobby Ewing in TNT's continuation of the series — says that he still keeps in touch with Suzanne and with two of his TV daughters: Staci Keanan and Christine Lakin.

"I wrote a letter of introduction for [Staci] to get into law school, and she has since graduated and gone on to be a lawyer in L.A.," he wrote. "Those are my three closest connections. I still get Father's Day cards and Christmas cards from my girls. I wanted to give Christine away at her wedding, but she chose her real father — I have no idea why."

Sounds like he's got some good comedic fodder for a reunion right there!
