Arrested Development's upcoming fourth season is certainly one of the most anticipated television events of the the past decade -- and it's not even airing on television! Season 4, which is slated to premiere on Netflix early next year, has been gathering quite the buzz. Not only is that due to the fact that we're finally seeing the return of the Bluth family to the small screen (played by comedy giants such as Jason Bateman, David Cross, Jessica Walter), but it's also due to the fact that so much of the original show's supporting cast will be returning, too. Henry Winkler is confirmed to return as the Bluth family's aggressively incompetent attorney Barry Zuckercorn, while Scott Baio will be returning as the unflappably professional attorney Bob Loblaw. Judy Greer will be returning as crazed secretary Kitty. Workaholics stars Anders Holm and Adam Devine will be appearing in the series as well, while Mad Men actor John Slattery will be adding his own memorable character to the Arrested Development rogue's gallery.
And guess who else is returning? Lucille 2!
Liza Minnelli was confirmed on Sunday to be reprising her role as Lucille Austero, Lucille Bluth's social rival and the one-time girlfriend of Buster Bluth (Tony Hale). Lucille 2, as she was called, also suffered from quite serious vertigo, which led to her falling down quite often and being disoriented (a reliable source of comedy).
What does her return mean for Arrested Development season 4? It's most easy to speculate that she'll resume her relationship with Buster, though I'd like to think that the writers behind one of the best sitcoms of all time will be a little more creative than that.
We're also hoping to see the return of Carl Weathers for season 4, because it's been a while since we've had a good stew.
Arrested Development season 4 will premiere on Netflix in Spring 2013.
