The show’s star Jason Bateman and producer/narrator Ron Howard hit up their Twitter accounts, posting a picture of the writer’s room where the scripts were being hammered out.
“All systems are go,” Bateman tweeted. “Filming for the new episodes starts in four weeks.”
Howard, for his part, confirmed the news, writing “Arrested Development for Netflix. IT’S ALIVE. This is what the writer’s room looks like”
