In a series of messages shared via Twitter on Tuesday evening, Howard offered a peek into the writers room, where AD‘s 10-episode Netflix resurrection is being brainstormed, saying: “Arrested Development for Netflix. IT’S ALIVE.”

Howard subsequently posted the above photo of him with Bateman and the series’ creator, saying, “Mitch [Hurwitz] let Jason and I in on some of the twists and turns ahead. Hilarious.”

Bateman simultaneously tweeted his own photo of the trio, effusing, “All systems are go. Filming for the new episodes starts in four weeks. Woo!”

As previously reported, all 10 new Season 4 episodes of Arrested Development will be released at once, sometime next year on Netflix.
