Too good to be true? Nope, it's happening. The long-awaited return of the cult sitcom "Arrested Development" is right around the corner. Or at least, production is about to start, and no, this isn't a pipe dream or wishful thinking. "Taken at AD mission control, today! All systems are go. Filming for the new episodes starts in four weeks. Woo!," Jason Bateman tweeted last night, posting a photo of himself, producer/narrator Ron Howard and series creator Mitch Hurwitz.

Ron Howard also jumped into the fray, posting a photo of Mitch Hurwitz in the writer's room. "Arrested Development for Netflix. IT'S ALIVE. This is what the writer's room looks like," he said. OK, so be excited, but keep your pants on. New episodes of "Arrested Development" won't air on Netflix until sometime in 2013 (there is shooting and editing to do of course). But the good news is that rather than waiting week to week for each new episodes, Netflix will unveil all the new episodes at once. Steve Holt! (we hope).

    I'm basically salivating at the idea of new episodes, but am definitely still a little worried they won't be as solid as they were.

    Season 3 was fantastic, but wasn't quite as good as Seasons 2 and 1 (maybe having to do with their time shuffling and the being unsure of what was happening or where they might go), though it has aged well. I liked Running Wilde, but it had nowhere near the urgency that AD did, so hopefully the fact that they have everyone back will really bring this all together.
