Arrested Development is about to begin filming its fifth season, for better or worse. If you’re like me, you think worse. If you enjoyed the (gimmicky, eh-at-best) fourth season, for better!


The story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together, isn’t over yet. Arrested Development is set to start production on its fifth season for Netflix — and, according to star Jason Bateman, the family reunion begins on Aug. 8. Let the chicken dance commence!

Bateman tweeted the news with a new photo from the show’s set. It looks like Lupe better bust out the feather duster and take off the furniture plastic, because Lucille’s Newport Beach apartment is ready for its closeup.
