Just when you thought you couldn’t be any more excited for the return of “Arrested Development,” Mitch Hurwitz goes ahead and casts Isla Fisher and Terry Crews. There’s no news on who they’ll be playing, whose episodes they will be in, or even how many episodes they’ll be in, but we’re excited by their involvment nonetheless. They’re both people we really like who know how to be funny, and if the show’s track-record is anything to go by, we’re sure they’ll be given brilliantly bizarre guest roles.

While we have our hopes high and fingers crossed that the upcoming fourth season of "Arrested Development" can match the amazing genius of the first three seasons before it was canceled by Fox, it seems Mitch Hurwitz and co. are making sure they have all the comedic ingredients at their disposal. Of course, all the main ensemble are back, with John Slattery also lending his skills and Liza Minnelli returning as well. And now another player has confirmed she'll be appearing/planting as well.

Having given late '80s/early '90s idol-turned-TV-hero Kiefer Sutherland a plum role in his last film, "Melancholia," ever-provocative Danish auteur Lars von Trier is looking to pull the same trick again, as Variety reports that Christian Slater is the latest unlikely addition to the director's next picture(s), his two-part drama "Nymphomaniac." Slater, mostly seen in strings of dreadful DTV actioners these days, will play the father of Charlotte Gainsbourg's lead character, joining Stellan Skarsgård, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell and Connie Nielsen in the picture, which documents a woman's sexual life from infancy to adulthood. The trade also reveal that British model Stacy Martin will appear, playing the younger version of Gainsbourg's character.

The return of "Arrested Development" is a real thing that's actually happening and sounding awesomer than ever, adding John Slattery, with a possible 13 episodes instead of the originally announced 10, all set to drop at the same time next spring on Netflix. Or are they? There are still a million unanswered questions about the show, and while details continue to be kept close to the chest, Mitch Hurwitz gave a few more morsels about where the show is going next. And yes, a movie is possibly still on the table, but don't necessarily expect every new episode at the same time.

It's time for your semi-regular, minor update on the highly anticipated new season of "Arrested Development" that is now shooting. In the past week or so we've learned that the Silver Fox himself, "Mad Men" star John Slattery, has joined the cast in an unknown role and more awesomely, that the previously planned 10 episodes could now be stretching out to 13. But when can we see them dammit!? Well, very soon.

We live in a world where a great deal of evil takes place every day. But it's hard to get too upset about humanity when, six years after the show was cancelled, a new season of "Arrested Development" is in production. Like, as we speak. It's been a long path to the revival of the cult favorite comedy, but creator Mitch Hurwitz has finally assembled his original cast for another season of the series (which, for the uninitiated, revolves around the privileged, eccentric Orange County family The Bluths), for a fourth season that will premiere on Netflix next year, before (hopefully) leading into a movie version. And it sounds like we might be getting even more than we originally hoped.

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.

Come on! We could listen to Gob say that all day and after a never ending string of rumors, updates and promises, the fourth season of "Arrested Development" is actually happening and gearing up to shoot this summer. After the news broke that this was indeed in the works last fall, Netflix moved quickly and snapped up the rights to show, a major coup for the rental service who are dipping their toes in the waters of broadcasting. And now, more good news. Instead of parcelling out the ten new episodes in 2013 in a weekly format spreading out over a couple of months -- we're going to be getting them all at once. The plan is drop all the shows on a single day sometime next year. Awesome.
