As if it isn’t already exciting enough that “Arrested Development” is making a comeback, now the Bluths are bringing a “Mad” man with them!

Mad Men” star John Slattery has signed on to guest star in multiple episodes of “Arrested Development,” reports TV Line.

Details are under wraps so not much is known about his role, but Slattery, who plays wily ad man Roger Sterling on the Emmy-winning AMC series, seems like a perfect fit for the “AD” gang.

A long-awaited, highly anticipated fourth season of the cult comedy is in production with 10 new episodes set to be released on Netflix next year.

The revival of “Arrested Development,” which aired on Fox for three seasons from 2003-2006, will be “fearless” says executive producer Ron Howard, who also revealed in a new interview with MTV.com that several new characters will be introduced.

“[Series creator] Mitch [Hurwitz] isn’t trying to recreate something,” Howard told MTV. “It’s been away for a while, and part of the fun that Mitch has been mining and exploiting is, what’s new to discover about these people? What’s delightfully unchanged? He and the writing staff and the actors have a fantastic sense of that. They’re pretty brazen, pretty bold and fearless. That’s what made the show into something that fans really kept alive.”
