Jason Bateman notes first day of ‘Arrested Development’ production
The day has finally arrived! After years of fans begging and months of promises, “Arrested Development” is back in production. To prove it to fans, star Jason Bateman (a.k.a. Michael Bluth) tweeted a decidedly non-spoilery photo from the set.
“First day. Away we go...,” he wrote.
The cult favorite is beginning production of 10 new episodes that will be released simultaneously on Netflix early next year. Each episode of the new season is expected to focus on one of the many characters in the cast, which includes Jeffrey Tambor, Michael Cera, Portia De Rossi, Will Arnett and David Cross.
Several members of the “Arrested Development” family have been teasing the show’s return on their Twitter feeds in recent days. Late last week, Bateman was showing fans pictures of his costar Cera on the set (still under construction).
And series executive producer and narrator Ron Howard showed fans photos of series creator Mitch Hurwitz hard at work in the writers’ room.
