Brush up on the running gags and wordplay, because the Bluths are coming back.
Filming on the new season of "Arrested Development" is scheduled to start in four weeks, star Jason Bateman tweeted to fans on Tuesday.
Producer and narrator Ron Howard helped stir excitement among "Arrested Development's" rabid fan base by sharing a picture from the writer's room and promising more twists and turns courtesy of creator Mitch Hurwitz.
"Arrested Development for Netflix. IT'S ALIVE," Howard tweeted.
The canceled-before-its-time cult show has been resuscitated thanks to Netflix, which plans to air 10 episodes with the original cast. The whole batch of new shows will air at once on the subscription service at some point next year.
As Bateman tweeted to fans eager for fresh absurdity, "All systems are go."
Hopefully the family is as morally and literally bankrupt as it was when last viewers left the Bluths.
That would mean another chance to hear Gob (Will Arnett) utter "I've made a huge mistake," have George Bluth Sr.(Jeffrey Tambor) remind Michael (Bateman) that "there's always money in the banana stand" and marvel at Lucille Bluth's (Jessica Walter) incestuously charged hold over Buster (Tony Hale).
